Thoughts: Ted Turner shows the idiot that he is

It is sad that people actually believe this. Ted Turner actually believes Iraq is no better off now than it was before the Iraq war. How stupid can one person be?
Media mogul Ted Turner said Monday that Iraq is "no better off" following the U.S.-led invasion that ousted dictator Saddam Hussein in 2003.

Turner said the situation in Iraq is serious but not hopeless. He raised concerns about global overpopulation, poverty and hunger.

He also called for nuclear disarmament.

He said the U.S. and Russia still have thousands of nuclear weapons pointed at each other on a "hair trigger." He said if he were in charge _ making it clear he wasn't and never would be _ "we'd be rid of them."

He warned that a nuclear war could "kill everything on the planet" and said it could take place in an afternoon. Turner said he was afraid someone in power could make the mistake to launch a nuclear war, including President Bush, based on his previous decisions.

"You have to question ... the president on a lot of decisions he's made," Turner said. "He might just think launching those weapons would be a good thing to do. ... He thought Iraq was."

Turner said war is an outdated form of diplomacy that has stopped working.

I don't remember Ted Turner and his liberal ilk blasting Clinton for his wars, Somalia and Iraq. How can someone actually believe this? They must have no common sense what so ever. Common sense tells you that a country is better off when a tyrannical dictator is dethroned. There is no more rape rooms, there is no more mass graves, and there is no more mass torture.

These people's hatred for Bush is so extreme they can't even see that getting rid of Saddam Hussein is a good thing. Whether or not you agree with the reasons for war no reasonable person can say that Saddam was a good leader.

History has shown war is a necessary thing and will show that the war in Iraq was the right thing to do.
