Not quite apples-to-apples. At a minimum, we had Saddam dead to rights on gassing the Kurds. He also had a history of open aggression with his invasion of Kuwait. Whether you bought the WMD deal or not, there's no denying that Saddam was a dangerous lunatic whose rhetoric would lead anyone listening to conclude that he had no intentions of playing nice.

Don't know that we can say that about Assad just yet. Getting much closer if he really has gassed his own people, but not really there yet.

Additionally, there was certainly a greater belief that Dubya and his neocon buddies would give Iraq the two-footed stomp while about the best we can expect from Hopey Peace Prize on this are dipping a toe in the pool followed by a disgusting apology to the international community.

Finally, perhaps some of us have learned a lesson about that whole region being insane.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
