They both committed atrocities against their own people, but GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trumps says the world would be a better place today if Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein were still alive and in charge.
"I mean, look at Libya. Look at Iraq," Trump said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." http://sotu.blogs.cnn.com/ "Iraq used to be no terrorists. [Saddam] would kill the terrorists immediately, which is like now it's the Harvard of terrorism.
"If you look at Iraq from years ago, I'm not saying he was a nice guy, he was a horrible guy, but it was a lot better than it is right now," Trump added. "Right now, Iraq is a training ground for terrorists. Right now Libya, nobody even knows Libya, frankly there is no Iraq and there is no Libya. It's all broken up. They have no control. Nobody knows what's going on."
When asked by host Jake Tapper if the world would be better off today with the two despots still in power, Trump replied, "100 percent."
