Was Getting Saddam Worth it?

This is one of these questions that doesn’t really have an answer.  At least we can’t answer this question until we find out what the final cost will be.  We have to get out of Iraq and Iraq will have to have some sort of stable government before we can completely answer this question.  Of course, $350 Billion to get Saddam Hussein seems to be a little too much for my pocketbook but to be fair we really have to wait until we see what Iraq will be.

  1. I think that you answer is valid. Unfortunately, the price can’t be measured by the victims because the victims would tell you that no price was too high. We have measure the price by the American/British people. We are the ones who decided that invading Iraq needed to be done. We are the ones that have paid $350 Billion and 25,000 causalities and 3,000 deaths.
