Probably - few Middle Eastern countries allowed the women to go around Burkha-less or allowed Western products to be sold in their shops or non-religious literature to be sold.

Yes - to the majority.

But to the minority he gave many civil and political freedoms. I'm not saying he was a good ruler, but he did ignore Islamic ideaology in many cases, whihc is why he was disliked by Bin Laden et al.

I didn't, but either way you cannot deny that Iraq was the only Middle Eastern country to allow such a Western influence.

It's fact. China has enough power to challenge the West.
Its what makes the policy to reduce the armed forces ever more ridiculous, Geoff Hoon is employed to consider these possibilities and he is not doing so. Also Europe has next to no military power as such, we need the Americans to take charge for very minor wars such as in Yugoslavia. The welfare states we currently enjoy are all well and good but they wont provide much of a defence should a major war break out.

Wasn't that a NATO thing though. interestingly enough George Bush turned down NATO's pledge of unlimited aid or some such thing after 9/11, 2 years along the line what's he doing creating a coalition of the willing...

I'm not saying I suppot the invasion of a country for oil, all I'm saying is it was probably a factor to the governments when they went to war.

Bush is a fool, but i feel this war of terror and the friction with Islamic states will be looked upon as comparitively minor when considered by historians, the major conflict is yet to come i feel.

But realistically, it was probably a factor, even if it was a small factor.
