    Saddam, bin Laden, the "Free Press" and the Jihad

    Every so often People Need to be Reminded about some History...

    I am Drawing NO Conclusions, but the Left CERTIANLY wants to Conclude that Saddam had ZERO to do with Terrorism and our War with him was Unjust...

    Forget the Facts in the Joint Authorization that DemocRATS Voted for, let's just Focus on the Claims by the Left that don't seem to Die...

    So Iraq wasn't Harboring or Funding Terrorism?...

    Salaries For Suicide Bombers - CBS News

    Interesting... Remember Ramzi Yousef?... KSM's Partner in the First Attempted 9/11 in February of 1993?... He had NO History or Assistance from Iraq... Correct?

    National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States

    Of course Saddam wasn't Attempting to Appear to be Responsible with his own People...

    [​IMG]

    Nor was ANYONE Drawing Connections between him and the Attacks:

    Saddam Hussein's Philanthropy of Terror - by Deroy Murdock

    associalisticpress.com©... Salon.com: A Saddam connection?

    ^Salon Certainly didn't...

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWFWCg1BdRg]YouTube - The Saddam Connection To Osama[/ame]

    ^And ABCNews NEVER Connected Saddam and bin Laden...

    I am Sure that Liberals will come in here and Selectively Pick at what I have Posted, or Dismiss it and Attack me, but for ANYONE to Claim that Saddam wasn't a Threat in the Region or that he wasn't Involved in Terrorism is simply Absurd.

    He was ALL of that an Probably much more.

    But now he's Dead and Obama Continues the War he so Firmly Protested.

    And his Sheep Lay Silent.

    :)

    peace...

    This is misleading. Saddam payed Palestinians who had lost homes or lives to Israel. Although some of those compensated were considered "terrorists" the majority were not.

    To shift this to Saddam paying people to be terrorists is just more propaganda.

    And there's the first Attempt and Nitpicking, and then the Conclusion is to Dismiss it...

    How does Excusing Saddam Feel?... :lol:

    I never liked Saddam, but that is no reason to lie about his actions.

    I didn't say that you lied. I was merely pointing out the propaganda that is out there.

    Saddam was a thug and a tyrant that invaded Kuwait....oh how the liberals forget. Remember how his army set all those oil fields on fire during their retreat? You'd think the liberals would of wanted him hung just for that ecological disaster he created. But no, instead they are still making excuses for the piece of shit.

    Bottom line was Saddam was constantly breaking the no-fly zone we were patrolling for years after the first Gulf War, and we had every right to resume and finish the war HE started.

    Mal, you must understand. PF is not excusing Saddam. He is excusing his buddies, the Palestinian Arabs. He has a worldview which, judging from his other posts, allows the Arabs to do pretty much anything they want to get out from under the yoke of their "Evile (sic) Jew Overlords"
    This includes murdering anyone who disagrees with them, or even the tiniest of babies whose parents disagree with them, and it's OK because the Arabs are oppressed by the vast Zionist conspiracy.

    I still believe it was a strategic error to go into Iraq while we were still in Afghanistan, but that is a matter of the logistical and manpower constraints on a volunteer army.

    Saddam Hussein was a hypocrite who supported the Russian infidels and their puppet administration in Chechnya. Were he a true Muslim and a true supporter of jihad, he would have given his support to the Chechen mujahideen rather than to their oppressors.

    RFE/RL iraq Report

    Of course, that does not excuse Western involvement in Iraq's affairs. Oppressors of Muslims such as Saddam Hussein should be taken care of by Muslims. Don't stigmatize our cause by interfering in it.

    Honest Debate can be had about that... Unfortunately very little by way of Honest Debate has Happened before Obama or since...

    Those who Screamed the Loudest about (43)'s Policies have been all but Silent as Barry has Continued and Expanded them.

    This is where we are in Trouble as a REPUBLIC.

    :)

    peace...
