I am not offended by your opposition to Saddam, or that you speak the truth 
about him.  I just wonder why it is our problem when there are so many 
other monsters in the world that we give a blind eye to.  Where were we 
when Stalin was murdering 16,000,000 Ukrainians, or when Mao was killing up 
to 75,000,000 Chinese?  How about the ongoing murder and rape of Tibet?  Or 
the vast slaughter going on in Africa?  Why didn't we do something to stop 
Pol Pot?  It is gross hypocrisy to focus on Saddam and say were going to 
attack him because he is a Bad Guy.  Of course he is a bad guy.  So 
what?  The world is full of bad guys, some of them even worse than 
Hussein.  Is it our responsibility to going about like Don Quixote jousting 
at windmills?  It isn't that we should not police the world and enforce an 
unnatural peace.  We cannot.
