It's true that some people killed by Saddam's regime were truely innocent people, intent on living their life. However, we must remember that a LOT of the people imprisoned and killed were not the nicest people either. Saddam's main enemies in Iraq were not those pushing for a secular, democratic government. They wanted an Iranian-style Islamic government, pretty much what we have right now. Saddam's repression of his political opponents was actually a GOOD thing for our interests in the Middle East. As brutal as he was, his opponents were willing to carry out numerous assassination attempts in order to bring about their Islamic revolution in Iraq.
