I don't agree. Saddam was not a terrorist but a secular dictator who detested the fundie terrorists and wanted nothing to do with them.
When you pay the families of suicide bombers $25,000 to blow themselves up this does indeed make you a terrorist.I have mixed feelings about the war,and I am conservative.Even back in 2002 I was screaming to stay in Afghanistan.But really we were not going to get Bin Ladin.We would find a pocket of Taliban,call in the bombers,then let the Northern Alliance go in.We really could have done a much better job there.Now you are seeing their resurgence.It appears we barely crippled them
