28. Why Iraq?
If saving civilians from a horrific oppressor was the goal, there is a substantial pool of oppressors much more dangerous than Saddam Hussein, who are killing more innocents than Saddam ever did.

In fact the United States has always been fully aware of these dictator's activities, and yet we supported, and continue to support, many of them.

But no, we look the other way in almost all of these cases, except it seems, in places or circumstances where some Americans can profit. Really don't see ol' George breaking a leg to save the innocents in Dharfor now do we? Coincidence I'm sure, that there isn't a whole lot of money to made there.

Sorry, the ones who lost their moral compass certainly are not the anti-war crowd.
