bad guys 

Look, one of the resounding tenets of Dear Leader's apologists is the tired argument: you want saddam in power? aren't the Iraqi people better off (in the same breath dismissing the torture scandal and civilian casualties which is in the tens of thousands)? Ultimately they say he was a thug -- which he was. But then we court thugs like this guy in Uzbek who is systematically silencing activists -- anyone who is opposed to his rule. So what's the point? Saddam was our thug for years before he was the evildoer incarnate, how long before we go after Karimov? Oh wait, they don't really have any resources to plunder. Nevermind. As long as we keep our bases there, he's safe from us.
