The question is no longer, "Would Iraq be better off under Saddam?"

And now it's "Will Iraq be better off under the Taliban?" The linked State Department memo relates that even Baghdad is slipping into fundamentalism -- Iraqis that work at the US Embassy are being told to cover their faces in public, a stricter standard than 'Iran at its most conservative.' Wahabists -- the Saudi fundamentalists who really drove the 9/11 attacks -- are taking over the culture of the country.

So, now if someone asks, "Would Iraqis be better off under Saddam," you can stop equivocating. The answer's really just 'yes.'
