The thing is, Destro, this is just another stupid off-the-point argument on your part. That the US partners with places like Saudi Arabia, which is an oppressive theocratic shithole that allows religious police to beat women to death, is true, and is a very bad thing. It’s well worth pointing out, agitating about, and using to point out that the ‘humanitarian’ reasons for invading Iraq are fucking bullshit.
But instead of making that clear, reasonable argument, you have to go down the road of saying you’d rather be in Hussein’s Iraq because you could at least by scotch there. It’s a farcical, spoiled first world perspective that serves to diminish the suffering of those under Saddam’s regime.
