sometimes the simplest solution is best
being as it takes two sides to fight a war, how about this little idea to resolve the conflict peaceably:
Hussein and his kids fold their tent and leave town.
Is one madman's administration worth throwing millions
of lives in to turmoil and thousands to their deaths?
Hussein is clearly out gunned, out manned, out thought, out everythinged.
The only thing he can do is to go sit in his secure bunker while his army is decimated above him.
If he had any compassion for any living thing but himself he would fold his hand and surrender to the terms offered him. He is prepared to offer up his cities and people for destruction in a futile attempt to save his face and his ass. He can't win. A sound civilized mind would do the right thing. A sick demented mind seeks his own, and everyone else's, destruction.
