Maybe the motives for invasion were not as pure as the driven snow. All understood. Nevertheless, when one reads about a couple of hundred thousand Kurds, gassed to death, surely the question of whether the Iraq invasion was right or wrong, is somewhat difficult to answer. Of course the post planning mistakes have made things much worse than they needed to be but would the world have been better off turning a blind eye to mass murder on this scale? I don't have an easy answer to my own question.
