Yep, we can certainly give Bush, Blair and Howard credit for this:

Are you seriously suggesting Iraq was the land of milk and honey?

These are some of the things he did to his own people

Reprisal Against Dujail - On July 8, 1982, Saddam Hussein was visiting the town of Dujail when a group of Dawa militants shot at his motorcade. In reprisal for this assassination attempt, the entire town was punished. More than 140 fighting-age men were apprehended and never heard from again. Approximately 1,500 other townspeople, including children, were rounded up and taken to prison, where many were tortured.

Ľ Anfal Campaign - The campaign consisted of eight stages of assault, where up to 200,000 Iraqi troops attacked the area, rounded up civilians, and razed villages. Once rounded up, the civilians were divided into two groups: men from ages of about 13 to 70 and women, children, and elderly men. The men were then shot and buried in mass graves. The women, children, and elderly were taken to relocation camps where conditions were deplorable. In a few areas, especially areas that put up even a little resistance, everyone was killed

Chemical Weapons - Beginning in the morning on March 16, 1988 and continuing all night, the Iraqis rained down volley after volley of bombs filled with a deadly mixture of mustard gas and nerve agents on Halabja. Immediate effects of the chemicals included blindness, vomiting, blisters, convulsions, and asphyxiation. Approximately 5,000 women, men, and children died within days of the attacks. Long-term effects included permanent blindness, cancer, and birth defects. An estimated 10,000 lived, but live daily with the disfigurement and sicknesses from the chemical weapons.

The Marsh Arabs - As supposed punishment for supporting the Shiite rebellion in 1991, Saddam Hussein's regime killed thousands of Marsh Arabs, bulldozed their villages, and systematically ruined their way of life. The Marsh Arabs had lived for thousands of years in the marshlands located in southern Iraq until Iraq built a network of canals, dykes, and dams to divert water away from the marshes. The Marsh Arabs were forced to flee the area, their way of life decimated

Mate if you can't see any difference between what I posted and what we are doing in Iraq then your either a liar or an idiot and in either case it isn't worth my time.

Think for yourself next time before sharing the mindless nonsense that litters the leftist websites.

Paul.L,

I know Paul.L - it can be very hard for people when confronted with their own 'failings' - but I've always believed it is best to put ones own house in order first.

Since the invasion and occupation of Iraq 1,000,000 dead, 4,000,000 displaced and according to Oxfam 8,000,000 suffering from malnourishment - most of whom are children. Yep, Iraq today is SO much better than before isn't it?
