" ARE YOU ON DRUGS ? " DEPARTMENT
Tom Spencer, noted HNN blogger made the following statement on his daily blog George Bush, Evil Incarnate
- sorry, I mean Thinking it Through, on Iraq:
"In the case of Iraq, we took a relatively stable Middle Eastern state and have, through our own efforts, destabilized it and made life worse for the average Iraqi. Heck, at least the Iraqi people had electricity, sewer systems, and clean water under Saddam's rule.
Really. What's a few fingernails being popped out by the Mukhabarat, a couple of Toddler Prisons and the occasional act of genocide compared to cheap kilowatt hours ? This was not one of Dr. Spencer's more intelligent swipes at the Bush administration. I wonder if he could scrape up some live non-Baathist Iraqis who would agree to take Saddam back under any conditions. Stability in a ruthless, tyrannical regime is highly overrated. Better they be made to wobble a bit before they can contemplate killing their next 100,000 victims.
