What country is next?

If over 1862 lives [current casualty list] can be lost for democracy for a country that wasn't asking for our help, and that wasn't even the mission until enough people started complaining that the "War on Terror" belonged in different countries—not Iraq, and now we are saying that liberating these poor people is a "noble cause", then please tell me which country we will be liberating next from the horrible leadership of THEIR dictators: Sudan, North Korea, Burma, China, Saudi Arabia (!!), Libya, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Zimbabwe, or Equatorial Guinea? Saddam was only #3 on the list in 2003, there were two dictators WORSE than he was... why didn't we go after them? #1 was North Korea, and #2 was SAUDI ARABIA. The country who provided the 9/11 TERRORISTS.
If being "noble" means going into other countries, capturing their dictator, and helping them rebuild... and this is NOT a personal agenda for on Bush and cronies, then tell me which country is next... and then tell me what happened to the "war on terror" because that is what has been shoved down my throat since 9/11 and I'm still waiting to hear how we are winning that. bin Laden was more of a threat to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA than Saddam was... how did we get off track?
