But breaking the Treaty of Versailles in the process. The world should have acted sooner. One of the reasons for attacking Saddam was that, if the UN embargos and sanctions were lifted (which was being pressed for), he would have been able to rebuild his armed forces and weapons on a massive scale. At least we learnt from the 1930s that allowing certain dictators to flourish spelt disastor, even if it was only for that one occassion.
