Does the absolute security of the US take precedence over the lives of innocents of another country??
How much risk is the US willing to accept to keep from devastating another country with the resulting humanitarian disaster??
If the US is so interested in democracy in the mideast why wasn't democracy a requirement for the US saving Kuwait......no better time for installing a democracy than when the royalty had fled the country.
Why not start with Saudi Arabia where a democracy would have a better chance for success??

Good questions......i'll answer the first one....right now many innocent civilians have died in Iraq as a result of the war, ofcourse most of them werent intentional but that doesnt really excuse the taking of innocent lives...about 100,000+ have died in Iraq...the number one excuse we are using now is "Saddam killed more when he was the president of Iraq" .... i know that excuse sucks balls but its working right now until we think of a new one for when the inncoent toll exceeds that of Saddam hussein which it will in the years to come.
Second question....we risk what we have to because the general public dosnt care about "the darkies" and how they suffer.
Third question....Saddam hates freedom so we needed to get him out of kuwait
Fourth question.....Saudi Arabia??? they do cut heads and hands off, do have a dictatorship style rule, oppressed country.....FULL OF TERRORISTS!! zero human rights!! several bombings and killiings of Americans have happened there in the past years......but we cant touch them...cause they dont hate freedom..that and the 10million+ barrel of oil production might also be a factor.

The study saying that there are 100,000+ civilian deaths went to 1000 families in 33 locations. The families were interviewed about births and deaths in household before and after the invasion. It is the same method used in Kosovo in the 1990s, but I think the researchers this time zoned in on hotspots in iraq that is not representative of the death toll across iraq. They didnt count 100,000 bodies. they did a survey of these 1000 families, then took that number and put into an algorithm for all of iraq. So of course if you sample baghdad, then plug that number into whatever times area of baghdad or population or however, you're gonna get a large number. but i dont think that number is valid.
