"Why do we care if it goes back to a Muslim controlled government?"

What the heck does that mean? "Go back to Muslim controlled"? Iraq is 90% Muslim. Every govt in Iraq would be controlled by Muslims. If you meant Islamic theocracy (not "Muslim controlled"), then Saddam was a secular socialist. Iraq was not theocracy under Saddam.
