That said, it cost a trillion dollars to get rid of him. IMO the Iraqi's should pay some of that back over time from oil revenue. The human cost is harder to quantify, but it's all about how many lives has it potentially saved by getting rid of Hussein, we'll never know the answer to that sadly. Overall it could be a good thing Bush did for the world but I'm not sure 100%.
You do realise the US killed a million Iraqis right? They went to war on a lie (there weren't any weapons of mass destruction), killed a million Iraqis, got rid of a ruler who did not pose the US a threat at all (Israel was a nation he stated he didn't like), turned public opinion even more against the US, WASTED 1Trillion US dollars....
