We were Saddam's ally whey he was at his murderous worst, but Western oil companies had not yet been kicked out of Iraq, so.............
Just facts, thats allAnd regardless of the history that any two countries may or may not have it doesn't change anything.
If we wanted to get big oil back in Iraq, which we very much did as recommended in Cheney's Energy Task Force Report.Saddam needed to be removed from power.
The regime we helped set up was corrupt, how would us staying there longer change that???And if this new regime is just as bad or worse then the US government should be held to blame for pulling out and not completing what they went in their to do.
There are plenty of countries where people were being tortured, but none other with the worlds 2nd largest reserves of oil.The United States has a means to stop these things from happening. People are being tortured at the hands of some of these governments. I believe freedom, not just freedom for Americans, is worth more than money.
The US justified it, not me baby. But then, we were getting oil, so..............................And are you really justifying Iraq's use of mustard gas? That is sick. You need help.
I am the one that believes that property rights don't end with our borders. Sorry don't believe in killing innocent people for their property. Its just the way I was brought up.But I guess you are one of those who thinks humanity ends at America's borders and the rest of the world deserves to suffer.
