Saddam, the terrorist's friend

I thought that Saddam was a peaceful guy who the Left loved?

Well, of course, the Left did love Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Che... I guess he fits the Leftist model well! Congrats!

Saddam, the terrorist's friend | The Australian: "THE fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq should lead us to focus on two inescapable but unfashionable truths: that Israel is marginal to most conflict in the Middle East and certainly not the cause of Islamist hostility to the West; and that Saddam Hussein was not only the most bloodthirsty tyrant of his day but an inveterate supporter of terror.

The sincere belief by US, British and Australian policymakers that Saddam possessed weapons of mass destruction, a belief we now know was wrong or at least greatly exaggerated, combined with Saddam's deep involvement in terrorism, facts we have just had confirmed from translated internal Iraqi documents, provided one powerful reason for taking military action against Saddam.

(These documents also incidentally show that one of Saddam's projects resulted in the killing, by his terrorists, of an Australian aid worker in Kurdistan in 1993.)"
