Way of dictators

THE WAR IN IRAQ WAS about the fall of one dictator and the rise of another (The fall, April 21). Baghdad has fallen. Saddam Hussein has fled or dead and another dictator, George W. Bush, has taken over. Despite  worldwide protests, Bush invaded and destroyed Iraq. The US was unable to find evidence of weapons of mass destructions, the root cause of the war. Now Bush is targeting Syria. The message is clear enough: dance to the tune of Bush or else, face the music.
