I think it would be fine except for one extionally large problem, that's not how the war was sold to us.

We're already in Iraq, the reason for this documentary seems moot.

Should have spent their time and energy shedding light on the other murderous regimes out there.

There's no question that Saddam was a murderous tyrant who didn't care who he screwed or killed to get his political agenda across. However, he wasn't exactly the only disgusting tyrant on the planet. The guys in the Sudan and Zimbabwe both really piss me off too.

Saddam trumps Mugabe on almost every conceiveable point; Mugabe is a tin pot dictator, Saddam was genuine mass murdering tyrant who ran a police state and murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Documenting and cataloguing the deaths caused by the regime is the only way to guarantee that the world understands how evil it is and do its best to never let it happen again; no different than releasing material from the holocaust, only on a significantly smaller scale.

Really though it is backwards; Saddam had already gotten rid of tens of thousands of opponents, gassed the Kurds and fought al war against an equally brutal neighbour. All reasons that he should have been removed in 1991 but due to diplomatic compromises and the lack of a mandate as well as military and geopolitical considerations it didn't happen.

He was like Hitler; if in WW2 the western allies stopped at the Rhine then pulled back to the Maginot Line while the Soviets pulled back to Poland and they spent a decade keeping German under millitary blockade while the Nazis stayed to power.

Different Heartland, dude, different Heartland.

But if you are looking for an actual Bono quote critical of America, hey, look no further than the lyrics to Bullet.

Sorry if it doesn't fit your illusions.

In WW2 they went all the way into Germany and crushed the Reich, unlike Saddam Hussein who was kicked out of Kuwait and then boxed in with a policy of containment.
