15. I think you miss the point...
The RW had their reasons for wanting Saddam to remain in power... I would have much rather seen him stay in power until there was a clear way forward. That's not even close to saying he's anything but a horrific despot, and it's not praise for him by any stretch. The evil bastard kept a secular government, and kept the lid on things for a long time. I would have much rather his trip to hell was delayed by whatever time necessary to ensure the mess we have now never happened.
