74. "no realistic chance of getting rid of Saddam without outside invasion?"

Uh, the Iranians managed to get rid of the Shah without an outside invasion, didn't they?

You'll probably say "it's not the same." It's exactly the same. I knew Iranian students back in the 1970s who were so utterly terrified of the Shah's reach that they would not say one word about the Iranian government.

Simply refused to discuss it. Not one word.

And they were in Philadelphia!

Not Tehran. Not even Europe. They were scared of the Shah in a bar in South Philly, where the only thing the other patrons wanted to kill were the players of the Buffalo Sabres when they scored a goal against the Flyers in the hockey playoffs.

The Iraqis wanted to get rid of Hussein badly enough, they could have. The Iranians did it, agains an equally vicious regime.

Sorry about your leg, but that doesn't make your logic any less broken.
