Its in the interest of the planet that Saddam be disarmed. The most effective Foreign Policy to achieve that goal is the one that is being pursued by the USA. Others may have a different opinion, but I was stating mine.

American forign policy in the past gave us Trujillo, the Samozas, Batista, Mobutu, Pinochet, the murderous National Guards of every Latin American country, The Shah of Iran, and the Taliban, the Contra-War...

There is significant historical evidence that US forign policy has not always aided the rest of teh world.

It has in the sense that Communism was prevented from taking over the planet and another World War was prevented from happening because of US efforts during the Cold War.

Oh yes, communism. The greatest threat to mankind, even greater and more horrible than fascism...

To many people who experienced it, it indeed was worse.

Has communism been practiced in a healthy form? Takes a lot of policing to make sure everyone is "equal".

not entirely healthy, but ive heard some decent things about cuba lately. china, well their human rights record is appalling, and north korea well theyre a bunch of asses lately.

id say cuba is about the only communist country in the world that appears to have something going for it.
