Why not say good things about US policy? [Archives:2003/674/Letters to the Editor]

I read with interest your editorial regarding why the Arab world doesn't like US policy. The one thing I was quite surprised to find was your complete lack of pointing out the good that has come from it. Where is Saddam? How many children were released from his prisons? Would the world be a better place with Saddam in power? What other justification did we need? No one believed that there was WMD. No one thought Iraq was a threat to the US. However, Saddam was a Major threat to his own people. Ask the ten year old child that was released from his torture prison if he is better off without Saddam, then let me know what you think of US policy.
