I wonder if the Kuwaits have stopped that side-drilling now the oil belongs to the US  .......   : ...

They were one step ahead. They sucked up all the oil next to the border first.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Of course .. land of milk and honey, millions killed, half of Iraq inhabitable to much depleted ur ...

Nonono, - in a real democracy all Iraq people could now line up for all kinds of support from their fellow democratic countries.

Just imagine if China becomes a democracy, - who could give all that support that so many western counties believe every democracies of the world in case of need should be entitled to receive?

Yes bad as he was.... his courage and defiance were exemplary...

"Every one of the dozens of obituaries We have seen from the western press focuses on the President Saddam's alleged brutality and the unproven cases of his violation of human rights. None---absolutely none---focused on the man who had held Iraqi together better than the US and its billions of dollars and Iraqis they could buy. None---absolutely none---focused on the man who against all odds had stood for the justice of the Arab and Muslim cause around the world, especially in Palestine, and even against the world's most expensive, most powerful, and most deadly army. And none---absolutely none---focused on the fact that the capture, the trial, and the execution of the Iraqi President were illegal and unfair, according to the almost unanimous opinion of the international community and international legal experts.

If we are to believe the western media, there was only one side to this story. If we are to believe the propaganda circulated by the US government and its allies the former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was not a man, but a myth the proportions of Peer Gynt.While the west's fabulous villainization of the Iraqi President may serve to strengthen the internal resolve of people too ignorant to test fiction against observed reality, it will not fool most people."
