Things went bad for religious minorities and gays immediately too.
And there were news reports of families responded to their daughters being kidnapped by killing the daughters when they were released because of the possibility that the girl was no longer a virgin.

Recently there was a mania of authorities hunting down teens and young adults who dress non-traditionally, killing goths and gays. Probably because there was a possibility that those teens were gay.

This is Arab culture, the despots may send the secret police in the night to imprison, torture and kill, they may have family members raped in front of their families to keep people in check, but they also form a counterweight to the oppression within families, the oppression caused by the religion, the oppression caused by the tribes and the oppression caused by people’s attitudes/culture.

The great irony here is that women were in better shape under Sadda’s regime . Except of course those unfortunates who were raped by his sons .

A) At this point I take all stories about Saddam and his sons to be mostly American propaganda bullshit - like the stories of Iraqis killing Kuwaiti premature babies.

B) The world, and women, would have been better off if Iraq was allowed to keep Kuwait and even if he invaded Saudi Arabia (in fact Saddam thought too small - he should have invaded Saudi Arabia first and the USA may not have had a base to invade and kick him out) because a secular Iraqi overlordship would have freed women from Saudi Wahhabism and Saddam would be selling Saudi oil cheap to pay his debts (at least at first).

Syria, an enemy of Saddam would warm up to American help because Iran would not be able to help them against a super strong Saudi controlling Iraq. Jordan and Israel would become closer? American troops in Jordan? Turkey?

What if scenarios galore….

At least Iraqis are free to emigrate now.

Why not, say, actually research the facts, instead of just making an assumption based on your own anti-Americanism?

Which Bush era bullshit should I accept as true? I am not anti American. I am anti your version of America. I am pro America the way old testament god was pro Israel.
