Saddam: The Man the US Loves to Hate

Reader comment on item: Saddam Hussein: A Political Biography

Submitted by Mandy Smith (United States), Feb 26, 2003 at 23:00

Dear Reader,
...After reading this article and other articles why are people still saying no to war? Well of course no one likes killing innocent people (well maybe except for Saddam) but he kills more people than we would getting rid of him. The people from Iraq are scared to death -literally- of him. He has government officals around everywhere making sure that people still like him and if they say anything bad about him they would be punished and often killed. If some people could just stop the anti-war parades for a second and realize how power-hungry and evil Saddam is and how much good President Bush wants to do, we might be able to rid Saddam from Iraq and give the innocent people a good president that they deserve.

I am only 13 and I can already see how much fear Saddam has put into the hearts of the people of Iraq. My parents are big on anti-war stuff, but I totally disagree with them. Saddam is simply a power-hungry guy with a lot of money and intimidated bodyguards. We could not be scared of the nuclear weapons he almost definetly has in his reach, and again we could help the brainwashed people of Iraq. If you disgree(or agree) with me, let me know! I am really interested in what other people know because besides my parents, friends, anti-war protesters, and the people that have been interviewed in Iraq (that were carefully watched by Saddam's officals) I don't know about how anyone else feels about this dilemma. So please let me know because I really don't know why anyone really likes him. Thanks so much for reading!
Sincerely, Mandy
