Thats really what France and Russia are saying.
They want Saddam to win this.
Thats what he's going to believe if we withdraw.
Imagine a future where Saddam Hussein defeated the USA and England at the same time.
How much power will the UN have over him then?
It took the US presence south of Iraq just to get him to allow inspectors in this time.
What will it take next time?
If you'll remember, he was not allowing inspectors in, until the US threatened war.
If we withdraw, he will know that the US poses no real threat.
Who wants Saddam to win?
