Although I'm a critic of the Iraq occupation, I am always unsure whether we might not be leaving them better off than with Hussein still in power. Still, the bloodshed seems needless. Then I read this story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/5240808.stmv Now, if they do indeed plunge into a civil war, would it be better for Iraqis as a whole or worse than if we had never set foot there? I'm looking beyond the war at the likely division of the state based on ethnic/religious lines (they might not even form democracies). I'm truly stuck on this one. any thoughts?
