Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Invasion of Iraq

I do not fully agree with your article.

It was dificult to understand why during the 1st iraki war, Saddam Hussein could stay (an unarchived war by Bush father).

Ten years later, Irak has no massive weapon, no more any nuclear project. Il is difficult why USA attacked Iraki instead of the future enemy : Iran.

The western world self-declared enemy was and is Iran.

Saddam Hussein was a good non-islamic state against Iran. Why destroy it ? Same as why destroy Kadhafi to open the way to future islamic power ?
