    It was a beaten, shattered piece of crap that couldn't last a month. He knew that if he attacked anyone, his time was over. You're really pulling for straws here.

    You just made the claim that the Kurds only lived in Iraq and that they are Saddam's, "people". Saddam was an Arab, not a Kurd.

    If that were true, there wouldn't have been a no fly zone, outside of the Kurdish areas of Iraq.

    You may also want to do some more research and discover that there are no Kurds living in the south.
    You should look at it again. The lines are only in Iraq.

    Are you on drugs? I did no such thing. I said the people were were protecting were his people.And I pointed to the Kurds in the north.This is when it started. Later we added the south. There is nothing about any attacks outside the country being a concern.

    Right. The southern NFZ covers the part of Iraq that borders Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

    Just because those countrie border with them doesn't mean they were why we had the NFZ. Com'on, this is silly. Only Iraq is in the NFZ.
