Those attrocities (sic) are no different than the ones carried out in Saudi Arabia every Friday.
There are government-sponsored rape rooms (where government goons rape wives & daughters in front of their families), human-shredder machines, poison gas attacks, helicopter gunship attacks on innocent civilians, wholesale environmental disasters to punish indigenous rebels (such as draining the entire Southern marsh system) happening in Shoddy Retardia?
There are other dictatorships all over the world who are just as brutal as Sadddam ever was.
Aaaaah, the old “If we don’t take ‘em ALL out at the same time, we can’t take ANY of ‘em out!” idiot talking point. I see that the docs didn’t excise the stoopid gland while they were working on you.
As far as Saddam attacking his neighbors: We were the biggest chearleader when he went after Iran.
Yeeeeeeah. There was that little thing about the Iranians storming our embassy and holding our “diplomatically immune” citizens hostage for 444 days. How DARE we cheer on the guys kicking their asses a few months down the road.
We even financed him…
Our “financing” him consisted of continuing to buy the same oil that Jimmuh Retarder was buying from him before the Iran-Iraq War.
…and gave him weapons.
At least you didn’t use the “We gave him MOST of his weapons!” MorOn.Org talking point this time!
I don’t know how many times I’ve gotta whack you across the snout over this, Dave, but Saddam’s inventory consisted almost 100% of Soviet, fWench & Chinese military hardware. If you’ve got Sooper Seekrit™ documentation of American hardware laying around, I’d greatly appreciate you letting us see it.
But since the first gulf war, he hadn’t been doing anything to his neighbors — we had him under control.
Yeah, Dave, at a cost to us of tens of billions of dollars and a severe drain on morale. (I know. Back in ‘94, rotating over to Shoddy Retardia for 3 months, every 3 months, in perpetuity, was one of the reasons I got out of the USAF. Slick Willie gutting the military and being a gutless hater of all military persons was another.)
And your “under control” is another string in a long line of flaming strawmen that you’ve posted here over the years. That vaunted “No-Fly Zone” you and your Drooling Underachieving™ friends like to trot out only pertained to FIXED-WING AIRCRAFT. Sod’em and his Band of Merry Murderers™ were free to roam around the country in helicopter gunships and kill anyone they wanted. Don’t believe me? Ask the Kurds in the North and the Marsh Arabs in the South. (I know this for a fact, because I was there flying “Operation Provide Comfort” and “Operation Southern Watch” missions after GWI. I even got the T-shirt for the latter to prove it. )
The refugee issue is a HUGE deal, and you don’t want to discuss it — because…?
You mean the refugees that were already outside Iraq because of the Ba’athist Butcher of Baghdad? The ones who started returning, in droves, after his fall? If there were still a HUGE refugee problem, caused by the coalition overthrow of Sod’em, where are the incessant calls for help from the UN by the surrounding countries?
The Gators are on TV, so I’m leaving for now. Keep drinking that Kool Aid®, brother.]]>
