Hmmm, in terms of the Kurdish regions, I would say post, because of the crimes committed by Saddam's regime, the gasing of thousands of innocents in Halabja being one particular incident which should stick out of your mind, although there are still problems which need addressing.

I would also say pre....and I say that as a kurd...
simply as things were better with saddam, the decadence and stupid excesses of now were not there, the people were better, kinder to their "fellow man" if you will, and not only that, but ALL of iraq has become so much more dangerous, even though you won't hear that about the north....it geniunely is much more dangerous
its a case of better the devil you know, and the fact that with him, many of todays problems would not exist
