The article presents an argument that justifies the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 despite its human and economic costs. It is suggested that the removal of Iraqi dictator and his brutal totalitarian regime from power ended years of oppression and suffering in Iraq. Hussein is also accused of possessing weapons of mass destruction and killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis during the 24 years he served as Iraq's president.
