Latest Poll:
77% Of Iraqis Are Happy
We Ousted Saddam Hussein

Even if prompted by the polltakers to think about all that they have suffered as a result of the war:

In a new Iraqi opinion poll conducted in January for by the Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) at the University of Maryland, Iraqis were asked, among other things:

"Thinking about any hardships you might have suffered since the US-Britain invasion, do you personally think that ousting Saddam Hussein was worth it or not?" 77% say it was worth it, while 22% say it was not. Polling results should always be taken with a grain of salt, but it is worth pointing out that just about all the relevant data available from the past four years points in the same direction.

When will this be put to rest? Saddam was a murderous thug. They found mass graves holding hundreds of thousands of people. There is only one reason for mass unmarked graves; if you are trying to bury evidence.

The man ordered the murder and torture of hundreds of thousands of his people.

Why would the Iraqis want him?

Oh yeah, he was relatively nice to the Sunnis, because he is Sunni.

Does that make him a good person?

Well, apparently, the Left has to think about that a little bit more. Maybe they could ask that baby in the picture above whether she is happy that Saddam has been ousted. I wonder what her answer will be?
