Gordon Brown, former PM of Britian, on the real reason for the removal of Saddam Hussein from power

“Our position was to support action so that the will of the
international community – that Saddam Hussein disclose and dispose of
weapons – be reinforced. And at the back of my mind was this sense
that, if the international community did not act here, then the
international community would find it difficult to gain credibility
for acting in other areas, and this new world order that we were
trying to create was being put at risk.”  – Gordon Brown
