Re: There's more than one, surely nUUdleman - 19/01/2003 08:57:37 PM

Surely. But that was the one option (realistic or not) that I could suggest.

You are aware that, I presume, Saddam uses doubles, and those doubles supposedly do appear at his public events? Killing him isn't such a sure bet. Neither is it sure that after doing so, Iraqis would welcome us in without a fight. Also, 'dropping in' Marines relies on us having Marines available at the time, which may be trickier than you suggest.

The show about why we can't get rid of Saddam hasn't come on yet ( ), although the part about doubles was mentioned. Of course it's not sure that the Iraqi would welcome us in hospitably, but I do feel it would be safe to assume that whatever fight that's put up wouldn't be as stiff. Of course, his second-in-command could well step in and all that would change would be the leader of the regime.

I've heard lots of reasons (excuses) why the uprisings in Iraq have not been supported. The best ones have been that Islamic extremists or puppets of Iran were behind them. Sounds pretty lame, to me, though.

I agree with you on that. Regardless of whether or not they were Iranian puppets, the potential opportunity for us was far greater. Besides, the Iranians are more predictable in their anti-Americanism, so at least we'd know where they stand.
