Middle East Crises: A Play of Thoughts

North Africa is on fire, parts of Arabia too. The leaders of Tunisia and Egypt had to go, Libyan-dictator Muammar el-Qaddafi is fighting his own people, and many Libyans lost their lives. And what about Saddam Hussein?

Oops, I almost forgot. Iraq isn`t a dictatorship any more. Former US President George Bush put the dictator out of office and the dictator was executed by his own people. But Bush didn´t get much credits for it, and many people hate him for that.

Yes the war in Iraq was (is) ugly, as any war is. But what would be, if Saddam Hussein were still in office? The dictator was as ruthless as his colleague in Libya. Hussein used gas to fight the Kurdish people (inhabitants of the Iraq) and his neighbor Iran. What would he do now? It seems now that the Iraq war saved the people from a very messy civil war. If Hussein were still in command, the disaster in Middle East could be much messier.
