If this isn't enough of a reason to invade Iraq, nothing is

Children clutching toys, babies in their mothers' arms, and men and women of all ages, killed by Saddam during the late '80s and bulldozed into mass graves. And if you think that's sickening, read this:

"Mr Kehoe said that work to uncover graves around Iraq, where about 300,000 people are thought to have been killed during Saddam Hussein's regime, was slow as experienced European investigators were not taking part. The Europeans, he said, were staying away as the evidence might be used eventually to put Saddam Hussein to death."

We're supposed to work with Europeans, treat them as equals, and let them dictate the terms of how the world runs? Seems like they've abdicated responsibility for anyone but themselves long ago.
