3000 American soldiers now killed in Iraq

There’s been absolutely zero discussion in the mainstream press about the Bush family vendetta against Saddam Hussein ever since the Iraqi dictator ordered the assassination of George H.W. Bush.
Why did George W. Bush hasten to execute the dictator who his father courted, who his father turned against to regain control of Middle East oil, and who later issued an assassination order against his father.
One needn’t defend Saddam Hussein to question what the cause was that sent 3000 American soldiers to their graves, and wounded another 22,565. What is accepted fact now should have been abundantly clear in 2003: that the United Nations had, in fact, very thoroughly identified and destroyed Saddam’s weapons labs after the first Iraq war; that Iraq was not “the central front” in the war against terrorism; and that occupying Iraq would place American soldiers in the middle of a bloody civil war.
Rather than leave Saddam to rot in an undisclosed prison, at least until U.S. troops leave Iraq, by making Saddam’s gruesome execution public and televised, and burying him in a marked grave, George W. Bush has committed another grave error of judgment. Saddam will be glorified as a martyr, and will continue to inspire opposition to the United States. Saddam’s execution will likely have the same effect as Paul Bremer’s landing in Baghdad, issuing proclamations to, immediately, privatize all Iraqi industries, to disband the decapitated and defeated army, and to fire all professionals who were members of the Baath Party.
Invading a country to settle a personal vendetta, George W. Bush has again shown the mental and emotional development of a two-year-old, obediently served his masters in the oil business, and demonstrated once again that he is the worst president ever!
