War in Iraq

Canadians are very lucky our country is not fighting in Iraq. The war has furthered the terrorist cause and killed and maimed hundreds of thousands. What should be a wealthy country selling oil is now an empoverished battlefield where nobody is safe or secure. America is hated more because of the war and American casualties are disproportionately high. The cost of the war to the USA is enough to finance universal health care.
Is the world, or Iraq or the USA better off with Saddam Hussein gone? The answer now is clearly no. This is accepted by Americans who elected an anti war democratic congress last fall. The President is ignoring this and escalating the war.
Canadians should be vigilent that our Government is not one that will make the mistake of blindly following an American leadership role in promoting additional wars.
