Take out Saddam? Was he ever even a threat? To the average, uneducated and ignorant American they probably hate him for no good reason other than him being who he is or, they might give the excuse of the Kuwait genocide (though I seriously doubt how many Americans really care about that other than giving it as a reason to hate him).
Additionally, there are constant allegations of Saddam being guilty of crimes against humanity. I find this hilarious as he hasn't done anything America hasn't done now in their so called "War against Terror". Firstly, terrorism cannot be stopped. "Terrorism" is not a physical or tangible place or thing, it is a manifestation of beliefs. You can kill the followers but you cannot kill the belief. The best thing to do to stop it is to not bomb the hell outta some country but rather by stopping the causes of terrorism and trying to geniunely help the country instead of wringing it for all its worth.
Let's not forget that it was actually proven that Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction, as well as the fact he had no ties to Al Quaeda or anything like that. Other people initiating war on the US? I'm sorry but I agree with DarkDepths. The lie about Weapons of Mass Destruction certainly did the trick.
Even moreso, do you guys even get coverage of all the destruction and atrocities that are being committed over there? It's all okay tho because that whole neighborhood was occupied by terrorists, what branch? who cares cuz they were terrorists anyway, and the women and children? Well they shouldn't have been there should they? Even though all the guys killed were all decent hard working people with real jobs and families doesn't matter because that's all "Collateral Damage" according to the American military.
Its just so amusing how we'll never see this ugly side of the "American Way" portrayed in any game at least no game made by any American development crew).
