In an NPR Diane Rehm show
yesterday a few interesting points were raised: the regime change in
Iraq wasn’t the first one, but yet another in a long chain of such
events. Previously they were called wars, or were done covertly by
supporting dissident groups.

Anyway, one of the reasons for the regime change in Iraq was that
Saddam Hussein was mistreating people, like killing without trial,
keeping people in prisons without any legal recourse, torturing the
prisoners. Elections weren’t fair either.

Hmm. Does any of those actions sound familiar in the post Saddam world?
