SURE, SADDAM WAS A MASS MURDERING DICTATOR IN VIOLATION OF THE RESOLUTIONS THAT HALTED THE '91 WAR...:

Which fool ever thought the Iraq War was about WMD?: The most surprising thing about Tony Blair’s ‘revelation’ that he would have deposed Saddam regardless was that so many found it shocking. (Mick Hume, 12/16/09, Spiked)

Tony Blair has been crucified by the unbelievers again, after admitting, as one newspaper put it, that he ‘would still have led the country to war in Iraq even if he had known that it had no weapons of mass destruction’. This ‘shock revelation’ has led to shrill condemnations and demands for the current UK Iraq inquiry to be turned into a war crimes trial.

To some of us opponents of the war, however, the only ‘shock’ is that anybody should be surprised by what Blair said. Did they imagine that instead the former prime minister would admit that he was wrong? More importantly, it should always have been obvious that the non-existent Iraqi WMD were only a thin pretext for the US-led invasion of Iraq and overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003.


...but the Left and far Right won't go along with just wars unless you can convince them they're personally threatened.
