    The Reaganites supported Saddam, thus they are implicit in Saddam terrorizing his own people. The bushies violated international law and invaded Iraq. Saddam could have been toppled without invasion. With bush and cheney, however, war was inevitable.

    fir you Jake
    Five years on, few Iraq myths are as persistent as the notion that the Bush Administration invented a connection between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda. Yet a new Pentagon report suggests that Iraq’s links to world-wide terror networks, including al Qaeda, were far more extensive than previously understood.
    The rise of Islamic fundamentalism in the region gave Saddam the opportunity to make terrorism, one of the few tools remaining in Saddam’s ‘coercion’ toolbox, not only cost effective but a formal instrument of state power,” the authors conclude. Throughout the 1990s, the Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) cooperated with Hamas; the Palestine Liberation Front, which maintained a Baghdad office; Force 17, Yasser Arafat’s private army; and others. The IIS gave commando training for members of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the organization that assassinated Anwar Sadat and whose “emir” was Ayman al-Zawahiri, who became Osama bin Laden’s second-in-command when the group merged with al Qaeda in 1998.

    For you, JRK. The only myths about Iraq are yours. WMDs, as described by the bushies, did not exist. No Iraqis were on the twin towers planes and no Iraqi money was involved in it. The bushies waged unlawful war. End of story.

    The killing continues, but the shi'ites have realized that buying off the sunnis is good policy. However, Iraq is growing closer to Iran, and that is a fact.

    No dumbfuck, the "civil war" you predict hasn't happened.

    Mostly because only a few radicals on both sides want to fight whereas most Iraqis see a brighter future working together.

    Also, Iran is too busy helping Assad and worrying about us/Israel bombing their ass in the next year than to help their scumbag friends in Iraq.

    Once Iran is brought under control, assholes like you won't have anything to lie about regarding US policy in the middle east because most countries will then be normal functioning countries on the world stage, instead of what they were under Saddam, Assad and the Iranian mullahs.

    You need to read what I wrote, and then respond to that, instead of the voices in your head.

    Nive cover-up, asswipe.

    Your predictions for Iraq haven't come true, but you continue to lie and lie here to make your boner against Buuuuuuuuush look good.

    Syria has WMDs but we haven't bombed them, why is that? oh, it's because they haven't recently invaded their neighbor like Saddam did. Now if Syria attacks Israel, Jordan or Turkey then Assad will become Saddam II.

    So behave as a dictator, stay within your own border unless you want a US led coalition blowing your ass up.

    The killing continues in Iraq: fact.

    Iran and Iraq draw more closely: fact

    If we attacked Syria, you would condemn the admin: fact.

    You attacked the admin for carefully orchestrating the overthrow of Khadaffi: fact.

    If Assad attacks his neighbors, the Arab League will destroy him: fact.

    Your silly far righty talking points merely point you out as the dupe and running dog of those who hate America.

    what people like Jake fail to understand is that in this country we have people killing people every day for a little rock that makes them hi for 30 minutes
    the media spins what happens in Iraq as it was Ws fault, but who do we blame for the 6 million violent crimes in the US last year?
    Every-one I know that was in Iraq said only most just want ot feed there faimly and want no part of war nor terror, sadly Saddam, Al Qaeda and others think different
    30 people killed in Iraq is front page news, yet 30 killed in the US daily is ignored
    Whats the diff?
    Saddam killed a million, mostly with gas according to the NY times

    Iraq under Saddam Hussein was known for its severe violations of human rights.
    Secret police, torture, mass murder, rape, abductions, deportations, forced disappearances, assassinations, chemical weapons, and the destruction of wetlands were some of the methods Saddam Hussein used to maintain control. The total number of deaths related to torture and murder during this period are unknown. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International issued regular reports of widespread imprisonment and torture.
