Then show me how it's wrong. I certainly don't see it and your proclomation doesn't past muster as proof.
lwd, if you are faced with a threat the only solution is to eliminate the threat. Containment is not elimination. Containment, the policy used against Saddam Hussein for the 13 years prior to the 2003 invasion, allows the threat to continue so you have to devote resources permanently to contain and block.
Get rid of the threat once and for all no futher resources for perpetuity are required.
With respect to trhe Republican Guard divisions, they were degraded but not destroyed. They provided the means for keeping the B'aath regime in power over most of Iraq, so that it would then continue to pose a threat to Kuwait and to the stability of the Middle East.
Clearing the Iraq forces out of Kuwait in my view was only half the job. Removing the regime that invaded Kuwait should have been the number one goal. I see no difference between dealing with Hitler and Saddam Hussein. Nazi Germany was overhrown and its surviving leaders were put on trial in an international tribunal. That is what should have happened with the Iraqi leadership. As indeed did eventually happen with the Serbian leadership over its crimes commited in Yugoslavia.
