If Only the U.S. Had Stayed out of Iraq...

...the Iraqi people could have continued their happy, peaceful lives under Saddam. They were so much better off then, before George Bush decided to interfere and impose pesky things like the right to choose their own leaders on them:

Municipal workers in the Shiite holy city of Karbala found remains believed to be from a mass grave dating to 1991, when Saddam Hussein's regime put down a Shiite uprising in the south...
Human rights organizations estimate that more than 300,000 people, mainly Kurds and Shiite Muslims, were killed and buried in mass graves during Saddam's 23-year rule, which ended when U.S.-led forces toppled his regime in 2003.

Yes, I can certainly understand why Cindy Sheehan, Michael Moore and their ilk, think the Iraqi people would be better off if the U.S. would just leave right now and allow them to go back to those glory days -- this time under the likes of Al Zarqawi.

Read the whole story.

"War is not the answer":
- The Iraq liberation was/is bad. War is not the answer.
- Darfur should be left alone (and the killings and raping allowed to continue). War is not the answer.
- Rwanda was a natural development, and we (the West) were correct in staying on the sideline, watching 1 million people get slaughtered. War is not the answer.
- It would have been better to have left Hitler alone. War is not the answer.
