    Because Saddam has the largest military in the region, except for Iran, and is willing to use weapons that even Iran wouldn't contemplate.
    > Why is the US sticking his
    > fingers up in the Middle- East nose !?
    Because every time we disengage, the situation worsens and the entire world demands that we get involved again.

    They did bomb Saddam's nuclear reactor in 1981, and a damn good thing they did, too; otherwise, the coalition might have faced nukes in the Gulf War. A nuclear Saddam cannot be risked.

    We have made it clear that we support regime change, however that might come about.
    > There is no record of such attempts, not even the slightest suggestion

    Because he has those around him cowering in fear. He regularly purges those around him, and any person who appears as though they might be gaining power or favor is executed, usually after massive and prolonged torture. Then Saddam watches tapes of the tortures while he eats his meals.

    Wrongo, boyo; the US gets out when the job is done (and sometimes TOO early), and its most actions have been to feed or free Muslims - in Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait and Afghanistan. You come off like a mindless anti-US memebot.
    >... the US wants to impose its so called

    The definition of democracy is self-rule, therefore truly democratic countries are not ruled by other countries. Your stand is self- contradictory, ignorant and confused.
