  1. Not worth the price? As mentioned in the article, Iraq is holding elections next month. So tell that the people of Iraq who were never allowed to have free elections until after we liberated the country of Saddam and his deviant regime. Seems that Biden has forgotten about the murderous Saddam brothers and Chemical Ali and the rest of the cronies that kept the people under their thumbs all the while living high off the hog. Remember the palaces of Saddam that our soldiers lived in for a couple years? Remember how ornate they were? And his people starved and had limited use of electricity and food was scarce?

    Sure, Mr Biden, it wasn’t worth the sacrifice. Now go ask our own military who fought for these people what they think. I don’t know of a soldier who didn’t feel it was worth it. In fact many went back for two and three tours because they did feel it was worth it.
