Is Saddam really that evil, or is he just a scapegoat for secretive U.S. foreign policy? Surely he ruled his country with an iron fist, but what 3rd world country leader doesn't?
As for the torture issue, nearly every other country does it, so why can't we? Will it substantially weaken the fact finding agents of the U.S. who extract information concerning our national security from "enemy combatants"?
Another question, has anyone seen that bit on Conan when they put someone else's mouth on Saddam's picture and make him say stupid stuff? It's Nutrageous. And regarding the title of this post "International Relations", I'm not talking about your trip to Puerto Vallarta, Nate.
As for me, I don't really have an opinion on any of these questions, except I do believe that Saddam is a scapegoat...
