Source Neil Clark, Journalist... Imagines what a world with Saddam still in power would be like today “If the invasion had gone ahead, the result would not just have been catastrophic for our country, but would have meant war spreading to other nations too,” Saddam said. “The US would have been encouraged to attack other independent countries such as Libya and Syria. Radical jihadist groups would have sprung up in the chaos that ensued. They would not only have unleashed terrorist carnage in the Middle East – slaughtering Christians and other religious groups, but the ‘blowback’ would have affected Western capitals too. There would also have been a massive refugee crisis caused by people fleeing the war zones. The whole world would have become a much more dangerous place. Thanks be to Almighty God that the war was prevented.”

Ironically... ISIS Leadership consists of more than 100 former Saddam military leadership
SOURCE - "I'm an Iraqi citizen and was just shy of four months old when the Iran-Iraq war ended. At three, I survived Gulf War I and then lived through the economic sanctions for the next 12 or so years. At age 15, I witnessed Gulf War II and spent my teenage years struggling through its aftermath. So needless to say, I spent my early years during Saddam's worst days; that is, when he turned from America's favorite ally to its sworn enemy.But was it really safer back then? Did America really help? Or was it actually worse before 2003? Personally, I think those are all misguided questions and here is why:Iraq was a wealthy nation throughout the '70s and '80s, despite the fact that it underwent an eight-year long war with its neighboring nation, Iran. The graph below closely follows the timeline I gave in Iraq: Did the west encourage Saddam Hussein to attack and invade Iran in 1980? If so, how did they do it?. A decline is recorded around 1980 (the beginning of Iraq's war with Iran), followed by a steady recovery starting 1982, and coinciding with America's very public financial and political support for Iraq."
