I am worried about this focussing on SH as the 'super baddy'. The US & UK love having him as the excuse for their actions in Iraq. 1) in no way should the lifting of sanctions be linked to getting rid of SH 2) sanctions have killed many, many more Iraqis than SH has in his whole career. 3) I'd prefer to share a lift with Tony Blair rather than SH but Tony has a lot more innocent Iraqi blood on his hands than SH. 4) Notice how the US has now more openly stated that they seek a regime change. Was it an accident that this happened as Annan was beginning to get somewhere in his dialogue with the GoI with a view to resuming inspections? Remember how increasing the demands was used whenever it looked like SH was going to leave Kuwait peacefully? 5) The Kuwaiti regime killed more people when they took back control after the war than did the GoI when it occupied Kuwait.
