    It's not Grenada! Ronald Raygun was able to overthrow a government which had just overthrown the Maurice Bishop government that Reagan had opposed!

    The man was as smart as a Bush or shrub.

    Now George Bush junior has overthrown a government in Iraq that opposed Osama bin Ladin in order to fight bin Ladin in Iraq where his followers hadn't been before!

    What can I say? The man is brilliant. Osama must be his biggest fan.

    What's Bush going to do for an encore? Perhaps propose "fixing" Social Security? Yikes! Hang on to your wallets and lock the doors!

    Would you want that man handling your bank accounts?

    Kenneth Lay and other corporate thieves also have millions. What's your point? I suppose we should follow their lead and steal money from the treasury and general public.

    Cheney's doing much better than Bush. He also makes money the old fashioned way. He steals it! Raid the treasury via government handouts and contracts to his old corporate buddies. Think he's getting any kickbacks? Sorry. That's like asking the question "Do fish swim?".

    Perhaps we should just make out our checks to Bush's corporate friends and avoid the middle man, the IRS.

    When did Saddam Hussein say he was against Osama? If your hinting that he would have been any help,I think we both know your wrong. And YOU are going to insult Ronals Reagan,lame! I guess things would have been better if he would have just let communism go unopposed.

    Exactly what i was wondering. I mean Osama was out there supporting Saddam on his videos. Saddam was harboring Al Queda agents as we've shown many time on the board. i mean how many times do we have to prove something before the left admits they were wrong about it.

    Osama bin Ladin called for the overthrow of the Iraqi regime because they were not a right-wing fundamentalist Islamic government. It was a secular regime. And Osama's outfit was not permitted to operate in those areas of Iraq that were fimly under the control of Sadam's government.

    There was hardly any love lost between Sadam and Osama. Everyone informed person knows that.

    And Ronald Raygun. Raygun claimed he just didn't know what in the hell was going on in his government .... for example, the trading guns for hostages deal. Perhaps he didn't! But, that invasion of Grenada was a real master stroke! I guess he just didn't know that the government he wanted to overthrow (Maurice Bishop) had already been overthrown before a single GI had hit the beaches!

    Don't insinuate that I am uninformed. Your argument is silly. Btween the U.S. and Iraq,I think we all know whose side Osama was on-whether he liked Saddam or didn't. So I'm guessing your for the oppression of millions of people then,and don't like the freedom the U.S. has given to the Iraqi people-eh?

    Where in the f#@k do you get your information from? Do you just sit around and try to think up the most absurd shit you can, then post it!


    Here try reading this, maybe you might have a few brain cells left to comprehend, if not well I guess all I can say is go smoke another one!




    OSAMA BIN LADEN and Saddam Hussein had an operational relationship from the early 1990s to 2003 that involved training in explosives and weapons of mass destruction, logistical support for terrorist attacks, al Qaeda training camps and safe haven in Iraq, and Iraqi financial support for al Qaeda--perhaps even for Mohamed Atta--according to a top secret U.S. government memorandum obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD.





    4. According to a May 2003 debriefing of a senior Iraqi intelligence officer, Iraqi intelligence established a highly secretive relationship with Egyptian Islamic Jihad, and later with al Qaeda. The first meeting in 1992 between the Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) and al Qaeda was brokered by al-Turabi. Former IIS deputy director Faruq Hijazi and senior al Qaeda leader [Ayman al] Zawahiri were at the meeting--the first of several between 1992 and 1995 in Sudan. Additional meetings between Iraqi intelligence and al Qaeda were held in Pakistan. Members of al Qaeda would sometimes visit Baghdad where they would meet the Iraqi intelligence chief in a safe house. The report claimed that Saddam insisted the relationship with al Qaeda be kept secret. After 9-11, the source said Saddam made a personnel change in the IIS for fear the relationship would come under scrutiny from foreign probes.
