Default not big on politics, but I have a question regarding Bush and Saddam

I was talking over with my pops about Bush and the war, and there was an interesting question... Saddam killed many people because of war right? he killed innocent people by his command, so because of this he got hanged for it . . . . . . . . well isin't Bush doing the EXACT SAME THING over there in Iraq by having our ARMY kill and destroy everything in sight including young and innocent pepople? how many people have died because of his commands? Is this a debated argument because like I said I'm not into politics and I don't follow that stuff . . .

Collateral damage is not the same as ordering mass executions and gassing your own citizens.
Now if you want to draw comparisons to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, then you have a case.

between 100,000-700,000 civillians isn't exactly collateral damage... especially since we lied to get over there.

j Fresh said Bush has ordered US troops to kill every living thing in sight, which he most definitely has not. Lying about getting into a war is not equal to purposely targeting civilians. And if you don't think that the American public hasn't been lied to about almost every major military conflict the US has gotten into since WWII, then you're living in a dream world.
