I was thinking this morning, and I think I have a solution for the problems in Iraq.

Give them back Saddam.

We should just annex the oil and then give the country back to saddam, and let him do whatever the hell he wants.

Most iraqi's obviously dont want us there, so we should leave and put saddam in, and when he starts killing his own people, we just ignore em.

Stick saddam back in, because most of the Iraqi's dont deserve the freedom we have given them.

Saddam was terrible, but it looks like he was the only one who could hold control over that stupid country.

I think it is just what the media is showing, I think there are a lot more iraqis that like what we are doing and what we did there, just the media is some how "missing" them.

My mom's freind was in New York at the airport and their were all these soldiers at Starbucks and she started talking to them and they had already been to Iraq and were on there way back (and happy to go back) and said it is so much different then what the media tells us and so much better than we all think.

Iraqis like that the 'Coalition of the Willing" has removed Saddam from his seat of power, but I'm sure if you asked Iraqis why they think you came to Iraq, they will say oil, Saddam was only a by-product of the invasion. I watched a documentary [not Farenheit 9/11, I dont really like Michael Moore at all], it was called Embedded in Baghdad and it was filmed and produced by the Alexandre Trudeau, son of the former Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau. In said documentary, Trudeau stayed with a veteran of the Iran-Iraq War and his family.

They traveled around Baghdad as the bombs were falling and surveyed the damaged afterwords [which was mostly one-sided] including bombed-out homes far away from military targets, looted hospitals, destroyed M1A1 Abrams tanks, wherever they could get to. I thought it was well made, and was not too one-sided. Trudeau interviewed many people thankful for their liberation and deposing Saddam, but all shared a similar view that Iraq was invaded for oil. This was supported by video of American soldiers occupying the Iraqi Oil Ministry before all other facilities [to which they surveyed] was being secured, though this is a reasonable thing since the oil ministry would be responsable for rebuilding Iraq [but only because the Coalition f*cked it up]. Also, there is much video of the widespread looting, especially of the museums, which were pilaged of thousands of year old relics of ancient kingdoms long forgotten, with no Coalition forces anywhere near, only to come when it is all over.

I'm sure some of use have read in the news of the American helo attack on civilians crowded around the burning Bradley in Baghdad. I watched a video of a Palestinian reporting for Al Arabiya who was killed in the video from the attack. One minute he's talking to the camera, the next, an explosion, the reporter's blood splatters on the lens and the camera man falls back. Lets just say it was rated higher than PG, and for good reason, not a 'good' highlight of this war I want to say.

hoisting a puppet govt can hardly be termed as giving freedom

I disagree, if he went back, he would help those who followed him and the one's who wanted freedom would be killed, so the bad people would win.

from a humanitarian point of view, no. from my egocentrical point of view that I was right all along and that it was about oil, yes.

That would be very good, yes. If you want all those innocent Iraqis who have died during and since the invasion to have done so for nothing, that is. And if you want the people who supported the Americans to be executed, maybe tortured, by Saddam as an example to all, as well. That's a good way to rebuild your damaged international reputation. Not to mention the soldiers from various countries who have given their lives to try and establish this 'freedom' and 'democracy' they're trying to build there -- their families get to live happy with the knowledge that their children/brothers/parents died for no reason whatsoever. At the moment, people are writing angry letters to the government. If we just gave up and put Saddam back into power, I wouldn't be surprised if civil war broke out in both our countries...

The reason you don't see these people who approve of the American occupation on the news is because people talking about their love for America doesn't make good news -- blowing shit up, on the other hand; everyone wants to see that. So that's what they show. If it weren't for these damned terrorists (who are the minority, you might be surprised to know), it would probably be a remotely decent place to live. What you're proposing, is that you give up and go home, and therefore allow the terrorists to win. As someone who's constantly advocating the so-called 'War on Terror', you have some very unusual theories on how to defeat terrorism.
