> 100,000 Iraqi Kurds were killed in a single operation, the Anfal,

Sorry, but there weren't that many Kurds in the entire country. Many people died that day, but 100K is over the top.

> I think it was right to remove Saddam Hussein from power.

There are many other, more vicious and murderous dictators that should be removed from power, but their lands do not hold oil or minerals or gold.

Will you free their peoples?

> and possessed, we believed, weapons of mass destruction

You may have believed that, but nobody in intelligence did.

> Saddam Hussein had a history of pursuing and using weapons of mass destruction.

He also built schools, hospitals, gave women rights, had a balanced budget, and kept religious fundamentalists at bay. For the longest time, he was an ally to the US.

He certainly had an approval rating higher than Bush.

> September 11, 2001 certainly qualify as violent.

Twice as many children are run over by cars every year in the US.
Where's the war on traffic fatalities?
