Widely and incorrectly seen. I have yet to meet a Kurd in what is still laughably called Iraq who would agree with the analysis that Iraq was better off under the Baathists.

Indeed the notion Saddam Hussain was a force for stability in the region overall beggars belief. Did his invasion of Iran and Kuwait bring regional stability? Likewise how many aircraft did Gaddafi have to blow up, how many terrorist groups in Europe and Africa did he have to support not be seen as to not be a force for stability? Yes Iraq and Libya are a mess, but they were a mess under their respective tyrants already before said tyrants both came to their well deserved sticky end.
