Dean’s Iraqi heel
: Getaloada the latest from Howard Dean on Iraq:
Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean said Sunday that the standard of living for Iraqis is a “whole lot worse” since Saddam Hussein’s removal from power in last year’s American-led invasion.
“You can say that it’s great that Saddam is gone and I’m sure that a lot of Iraqis feel it is great that Saddam is gone,” said the former Vermont governor, an unflinching critic of the war against Iraq. “But a lot of them gave their lives. And their living standard is a whole lot worse now than it was before.”
And how the hell does Howard Dean define “standard of living”? Mass murder and rape rooms and jammed political prisons and repression of all freedom. I’d call those negatives when it comes to a standard of living.
