14. Saddam should have been overthrown by the Iraqis
with logistical and diplomatic support by moderate Arab states, and NATO if possible.

Bush Sr and Clinton both had opportunities to make this happen, and both failed.

"Should have been left in power?" - I don't understand the question. Should we have invaded but kept Saddam as a figurehead? No SHould we have invaded and removed him ouselves? No.

Should we have made a moral case against the man in the court of world opinion, with moderate Arab states, with the skeptical Arab masses, with a sanctiond and transparent coalition...before firing a shot? Yes.
