Re: This date in History... March 20

White Privilege, I was writing about the 2nd Iraq war, not Kuwait.

With the comment about false pretenses, I was referring to the WMD claim. They fabricated this story to convince Congress that war was necessary.

True, Saddam was not a nice guy. He mistreated Shiite Muslims and Kurds.

When I made the comment about similarities with Ukraine, I was thinking of the bloody insurrection of 2014, when the democratically elected president was toppled. After that event, some of the Eastern portions of the Ukraine wanted their independence. Since then, the Ukraine military has shelled this part of the Ukraine on a regular basis, for 8 years. Some 14,000 civilians have lost their lives in this region, it is reported.

Maybe I am wrong, but I see some similarity between Saddam’s Iraq and post-2014 Ukraine
