Mexico, although I agree with u, a friend of mine brought up a great point. Bloody civil wars is the cost of freedom. France and the US are 2 that quickly come to mind, oh, fall of USSR too. AFRICA, dear Africa, millions, upon millions in Mozambique, Sudan...recently Syria...so sad...humanity hasn't really changed. Wars in this day and age just does not make any sense. RIP innocent people.

@Mexicano:

I quote

*>iraq under Saddam Hussein had high levels of torture and mass murder.

Secret police, torture, murders, rape, abductions, deportations, forced disappearances, assassinations, chemical weapons, and the destruction of wetlands (more specifically, the destruction of the food sources of rival groups) were some of the methods Saddam Hussein used to maintain control. The total number of deaths related to torture and murder during this period are unknown, as are the reports of human rights violations. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International issued regular reports of widespread imprisonment and torture. *

Not exactly the utopia you paint.

After nigh on 10 years of misery the corner seems to be turning for the Iraqi's.

No matter what you views on the invasion, this fact is evident.
