Shot in the head, shot in the chest, throats cut, abducted from their homes by people in army uniforms.

Well done America.

Just goes to show that Saddam Hussein was doing an extremely competent job, until George W. Bush decided he needed a scapegoat for 9-11.

Don't forget how increadibly thankful the Iraqi's were after their liberation. Also under Sadam they were verry oppressed. Not so different from today. Under Hussein were many murders/executions for the simplest of reasons. Tortures were daily. With minimal news media attention unlike today.

Sadly the only people remember those brief few weeks are the people who supported the invasion, the disastrous decision by the heinously incompetent Rumsfelt to disband the Iraqi army ensured the chaos and subsequent carnage after the honeymoon period. He should have hung next to Saddam.

Um, Madverts, if not for the invasion, Saddam would never have hung, he and his winsome sons would still be running Iraq into the ground from their luxurious palaces. And the chaos started the day the statue of Saddam in Baghdad was pulled down and hit with shoes. Iraqis were looting stores left and right, lol.

In light of your past displays of what can be only described as a very bizarre divining rod, uhm, "serrano"; I'd suggest you refrain from predicting the future or possible futures definitively to avoid further embarrassment.

The fact remains the carnage continues. Nothing to "lol" about, nothing more to even argue about, just continued horrific bloodshed and human tragedy in Iraq. You really should grow up....

The fact remains, "Madverts," that if you had your way back in 2003 ( no invasion / liberation ), most likely Saddam or one of his winsome sons would still be, to this day, running Iraq. Don't need a divining rod to figure out that one, sheesh ( lol ).

Yeah, the carnage continues, in Iraq, in Syria and a bunch of other places, this isn't Rumsfeld's fault, sheesh.
