Americans think Middle East is a Board Game. They are completely incapable of regarding Arabs as people. It is not war when there are 200,000 killed on one side and 300(mostly friendly fire) on the other. That is a brutal massacre, not a fight. US have an inhuman arrogance that has to be defied, not poodle licked. Of course Saddam is a tyrant but he is small fry in the 'threat stakes' compared with Bush.
