7. The left shouldn't support the resistance at all. Saddam was a
monster. Bushes/Cheney/Rumsfield put him in power - he destabilized the Mid East and destroyed peace chance in Palestine - Bushes/Cheney?Rumsfield realized there mistake - they took him out.

Saddam was a monster. The Islamist resistance is funded by terrorist organizations. The vast majority in Iraq want peace and negotiation and a mix of secular/religion. The majority want the resistance to go away.

Stop being silly. Bush & go were just 'hiding their terrible mistakes' by going after Saddam. Yes they lied about why to go to war. Yes war is bad. Yes they now support democracy in the Mid East (as a way to keep money out of the hands of mullahs, terrorist & fundamentalists putting money in the hands of the people & growing a middle class). Democracy in the Middle East (encouraging it) is a Liberal Ideal. They just married our love of democracy with their desperate & wrong war-mongering to "hide" their past support of any strong man who would give Big Oil a great deal.
