I think you're missing the larger point here. The US did not go into Iraq to get rid of a cruel ruler. The war was because of WMD which have not yet materialized. The reason for war has now morphed into the whole "getting rid of a cruel ruler".

On the other hand, if we are talking about cruel rulers and exploitation of people, why has the US only targeted Iraq, when there are numerous other countries out there in the same - if not worse - conditions: Sudan, North Korea, Tibet, etc.

On the contrary, I think you're missing the point. The word "evil" shouldn't be associated more frequently with "Bush" than with honest-to-god despots. No matter what one thinks of Operation Iraqi Freedom, the word "evil" really shouldn't enter into it.

Forget it, Sarah. He's just trying to feed the meme.
He probably didn't even read your article, just saw "Bush" and "evil" and then started pasting...
