Ignoring the fact that this entire post is a non-sequitor, I have one question: Why did the people of Iraq fail to handle their own civic responsibility in these cases?<quoted text>
"Once near a Nineveh hotel Uday saw a pretty young girl no older than fifteen. He found her attractive and had her kidnapped. Uday raped the girl who lay silently and
then let her go, bruised and bleeding to stumble back to the hotel to find her parents.
“It turns out the girl had been deaf since birth,” remembers Latif.“She tried desperately to communicate what had happened to guests in the hotel lobby, but couldn’t make her hysterical, silent crying be understood.”
When Uday’s was informed he commanded his bodyguards to grab her again so she wouldn’t make trouble for him. They took her to the nearby forest and gang raped her before killing her and burying the body".
The United States is not a global police force, and the Husseins were puppets, who we helped to put in power in the first place. Saddam eventually ran like a whiny pissypants into a spider hole. His sons were killed by Iraqis, who should have done it a lot sooner. The only reason we were there was their oil reserves - Saddam scared the whiny pissypants at the Pentagon into believing he'd burn them all, and that the American companies invested in them would be ruined.
Money, not the spreading of Democracy, and CERTAINLY not defending the flower of Iraqi womanhood, was the entire impetus of that invasion.
