That's great, in a way! So how much longer are we going to have to be there to "prop-up" this freedom? How much more money is it going to take? You can't "force freedom" upon people- it has to come from "within". "From within, so with out"! If the "people wanted Freedom so bad", why didn't they over-throw Saddam themselves?
You could also say we forced freedom on Japan, & Germany, & the former USSR. How much longer? Who knows? We're STILL in Bosnia afet more than 10 yrs. Clinton said we d be out in 6 months.
The Iraqis couldnt even speak ill of saddam without getting them & their relatives raped, tortured & killed. When we left there in 91 without finishing the job, as many as a million died after we left, because they opposed him.
