Default Even an inept US war was probably better than saddam

3 years of US occupation between 2003-2006 saw a number of deaths between 104000 to 223000 giving a death rate that is between:

95 and 204 civilian deaths per day

Using the source given at end of post, the death rate under Saddam was:

70 and 125 civilian deaths per day

Assuming the worst case scenario where the casualty rate per day under US occupation is about three times higher than under Saddam,
then Saddam would have, by simple extrapolation, caused the same number of deaths by about the year 2012 , arguably well within his term of presidency - This is rigorous stats at its best.
Then include the continuation of his repressive government via a transfer of power to one of his sons, and the fact shia-sunni violence would probably have happened whenever his regime collapsed, means that even an inept war probably wasn't that bad an idea.
