The recent state of turmoil in the Middle East has proven that the people who are angered with their leaders can peacefully demand a shift in government. Tunisian and Egyptian people have already gotten rid of their respective leaders with protests. People from other countries like Yemen, Jordan,... have also protested against their respective leaders. Do you think that if USA had not invaded Iraq in 2003, people would now be standing up against Saddam Hussain? Was the situation in Iraq too complicated (Sunni v. Shi'ite Islam, repressive Iraqi military personnel...); or has the US just been wasting its efforts in Iraq, not knowing that the situation might have been resolved by doing nothing?
