The big losers in all this are the ordinary citizens in Iraq and throughout the Mideast who were promised an infusion of democratic ideals in the wake of the invasion. Instead, they have been left with a widespread resurgence of religious fanaticism. Never have those fundamentalist forces, which produced 9/11, been more popular in the Mideast--particularly in Iraq, where Al Qaeda was ruthlessly suppressed by Saddam Hussein.
Are there any numbers/stats to support this statement?
