How sad Saddam is gone

Reader comment on item: ISIS Rampages, the Middle East Shakes

Submitted by Jacques Hadida (United States), Jun 15, 2014 at 01:59

Well,many today will wonder whether it was a good move to get rid of Saddam Hussein. Will America and the world understand that the word democracy has no meaning in this part of the world? Will someone understand that the only means of governance is a dictatorship a la Saddam? Do you think that all this would have happened if Saddam was still in power? We now have a major war between Shia and Suni, In other words Moslems against Moslems. I insist on using the word Moslem rather than Arab , for indeed Iran (non Arab) is joining in the battle. I am tempted to say,let them kill each other,that will mean less for us to worry about, but how sad for all the kids.

Plus if we let all these terrorists continue on their rampage,what will become of humanity? So this is what our world has become and each one of us is responsible for not handling properly a bad situation at its early stage. It seems that Iran is realizing this and is willing to take care of it. I would say give them your blessing and let someone else other than the US fix such a problem. We have had more than our share with the Arab world.
