With all the protests in the middle east, I've been wondering... would Iraq have been one of the countries to protest too, and overthrow Saddam without our intervention? Or would the protests never have happened without us invading Iraq?

So do you think these current protests would have happened without our current presence in the middle east?
I think they would have happened without our presence. I think travel and technology is more to credit.... The internet, young adults , traveling to westernized countries, seeking advanced education, etc~ "experiencing" democracy, etc is more the reason for the protests.. JMO.. Many of them Hate US all while wanting to be US...

This is what started the "Arab Spring" or whatever you want to call it. It's been brewing for a long time and it completely unrelated to anything the US has done to intervene.
Don't like that link...google April 6 Youth Movement and choose anyone you find to be credible.
