Yahoo! News – Howard Dean Says Iraqis Worse Off Now:

Let’s dismantle him with a few of his own quotes on the subject.

“‘You can say that it’s great that Saddam is gone and I’m sure that a lot of Iraqis feel it is great that Saddam is gone,’ said the former Vermont governor, an unflinching critic of the war against Iraq (news – web sites). ‘But a lot of them gave their lives. And their living standard is a whole lot worse now than it was before.’ “

Well, yes, Howard, the life of some is far worse than it was before. But are you really so concerned about the Sunni minority, who enslaved the remainder of the country? So much for ‘the party of the little man’.

“Would there not have been a better way to get rid of him in cooperation with the United Nations?”

Well now they’d been working on that for over two decades. How many more had to die in Saddam’s torture chambers, and his genocidal attacks, (Kurds, marsh people etc etc) before we decide the UN isn’t up to the task? In short, Duck, how many more people ahve to die so you can claim your supposed moral high ground?
