Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Invasion of Iraq

Submitted by JD (United States), Mar 26, 2013 at 00:38

One thing Mr Pipes forgot about today's Iraq is the Islamist elimination of the Christian population. Gone is the most stable and least threatening group of people in Iraq. Those remaining behind are simply unable to leave and most likely will be eliminated like a common household pest. That's how Christians are regarded in Iraq...

While Saddam was horrible in every aspect, at least he didn't butcher, bomb, etc, kill Christians.

The invasion of Iraq left so much to be desired. So much opportunity lost. Really, was it worth it?
