<P>You assume that things in Iraq would have been better had we toppled Hussein.&nbsp; However, given our history of installing and/or supporting rulers who kill both their own subjects and sometimes those of their neighbors, I don't make the same assumption.&nbsp; </P>

<DIV></DIV>&gt;Greetings Visionaires - 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Ed Evans stated: 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;"Certainly, it was just plain mean of us to drop our bombs, dust off our 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;hands, and walk away without reestablishing an infrastructure as we have 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;done in the past wars. Maybe this time round we'll be little kinder." 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Perhaps you didn't grasp what I was eluding to, Mr. Evans. Realizing that 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Sadam Hussein openly uses weapons against his own people (unprovoked), how 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;many lives would we have saved if Schwartzkopf had marched on Baghdad as he 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;wanted to? (not to mention the American lives lost in Saudi Arabia in 1991 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;for apparently no reason)
