Republican Jack Ryan says if his opponent in the U.S. Senate race had his way, Saddam Hussein would still be running Iraq.
Democrat Barack Obama opposed the U.S. invasion of Iraq. He argued that President Bush hadn't shown a clear need to attack and should have built international support before launching an invasion. But Ryan says the world is a safer place now that Saddam is gone. He says Iraq now has a chance to become a democracy.
However, Ryan says he opposes using American money to repair the war damage in Iraq.
Experts say the cost of rebuilding could end up being billions of dollars more than Iraq can provide on its own. But Ryan says, if elected, he will vote against sending more aid
