Saddam Hussein was a nationalist who wanted to dominate the region but he didn't have the resources after the Iranian 10 year war.  The U.S. tried to implant democracy in an Islamic Civil strife state which was impossible even over a 10 yr occupation.  There are too many Sunni strongholds and Saddam loyalists still resent the new Shia domination in goverment even though they are 70 % majority of the nation..  The unrealistic goals of Isis has pervaded the region and they are slaughtering by the thousands regardless of citizenship or faith.  The U.S. has made mistakes, too, as capitalists with a motive for natural resources but broad band killing by Islamic non state actors is throwing the country into so much disarray and power upheaval, the outcome looks dim.  It looks like the MidEast has a predictable brutal ending.  This is the best debate you can hear on BlogTalk Radio about Saddam Hussein's 24 year reign, Muslim extremism, discussion of Iranian Iraq Shatta al arab waterway, and the future of the region including the Kurds and Syrian stability.  Special Music.
