Deja-Vu? A nation with an oppressive regime that slaughters its own citizens. A nation that continues to develop weapons of mass destruction despite the presence of UN weapons inspectors. Members of the UN ignore the continued development of such weapons.
A coalition of nations including Britain and the US remove the oppressive regime and, following a short period of interim rule, hand pack power to a democratically elected power.
No, Germany (well, West Germany at least) 1939 onward.
I don't wish to preach about the war. If your views don't match mine then I respect you for holding them. I just thought it was a point worth making.
(Caveat - I'm not a huge student of history so forgive me if my understanding is not 100% accurate).
