Stability over Insanity in Iraq...Yeah, Right.

Before 2003, when Saddam Hussein tyrannized Iraq with his secret police, torture chambers and death squads, many, if not most in the west, claimed that he was still the best man for the job “because he kept stability in the region”.

The natural and angry human reaction to such scenes is, “What monsters did this?” But the rational response should also be, “What is the full context of this suffering and death?”
