Is Iraq really that much of a disaster? Dick Morris recently said, “Iraq in a civil war is still a step up from Saddam.” Honestly, is a free, democratic and pro-America Kurdistan (name a single article you’ve read about that) along with a neighbor tearing itself limb from limb in tribal and religious warfare that much of a debacle, as opposed to a lying, scheming, yellowcake-bargaining Saddam gearing up for another invasion of one of his neighbors, with terrorists recovering in his hospitals?
