is it required to kill saddam to do a regime change? is it required we do much of anything? is anyone terribly loyal to him?
if hes holed up in bagdad what would happen if we just sort of found a nice town on the other side of the country and said “this is bob, hes your new president, he has food and candy for you”
what would that result in? does he have lots of loyalty? if we attempted to give a new government by simply ignoreing the old one would that work at all? if we promised better conditions and military protection? is saddam’s army loyal to him? is it big?
is there anyone popular in iraq? someone to be ‘bob’?
