Iraq v Germany

Seems to me that to even compare the current US situation in Iraq to the Marshall Plan is to buy into the US-propagated myth that Saddam=Hitler, disproven over and over by our failure to find evidence of any WMDs, much less designs on any other nations since the Kuwait fiasco (and Iran before that, but the US encouraged and helped arm Hussein for that war). But Aziz Poonwalla (link at sidebar) puts things much more succinctly than I could. "Iraq was a totalitarian state, but not a fascist one."
