Yes it was our fault for creating the power vacuum. Better the developer you know than the one you don’t. GH Bush never said no to Saddam, even when he hinted of his intentions. So what the hell did we think would happen when we took out the only one in the region that the Iranians had to watch their back and fear as he was as the Iranians are a product of this part of the world. I know everyone who voted to invade Iraq regrets it now all you hear for the Middle East is a big sucking sound.
