ACTUALLY THE GENOCIDAL BA'ATH REGIME WAS THE BIGGEST CASUALTY:

Trust has been the biggest casualty of the Iraq affair (General Sir Richard Dannatt, 30 Jan 2010, Daily Telegraph)

[1]79 British citizens, almost all from the Armed Forces, died in this campaign – a tragedy for 179 families and their friends. Was the loss justified? There is no doubt that southern Iraq is a better place than it was under Sadaam Hussein, free from dictatorship, open to investment and perhaps with the chance for Basra to begin to emulate nearby Kuwait. But was that the real issue?

Yes.
