    The U.S. knew Hussein was launching some of the worst chemical attacks in history -- and still gave him a hand.

    The U.S. government may be considering military action in response to chemical strikes near Damascus. But a generation ago, America's military and intelligence communities knew about and did nothing to stop a series of nerve gas attacks far more devastating than anything Syria has seen, Foreign Policy has learned.


    In 1988, during the waning days of Iraq's war with Iran, the United States learned through satellite imagery that Iran was about to gain a major strategic advantage by exploiting a hole in Iraqi defenses. U.S. intelligence officials conveyed the location of the Iranian troops to Iraq, fully aware that Hussein's military would attack with chemical weapons, including sarin, a lethal nerve agent.

    Sure bring up the logic that congress will not set precedent on impeaching a president for not asking for their approval because it would weaken any future president's ability to do so, just like they will never remove the powers of the NSA even when the present dictator in cheif decides to use it to spy on them because in the end they love power. But in my defense considering the hatred of Obama we are the closest we will ever possibly be to them cutting off their own nose to spite their faces, and I need something to look forward to and complain at the pundits with when their people completely ignore their actual impeachable offense and start in on the benghazi thing again.

    I do hope You will be living up to your own standards and retracting your accusation of slander. But I don't expect you to live up to your own words which is why I will beat you with them.

    Good.All we have to do is take a look at Libya and see what has happened when we intervened in that country.No boots on the ground their huh?

    <Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), one of the most outspoken opponents of military action in Syria, wouldn’t rule out the possibility Tuesday of launching a standing filibuster over the issue in the Senate. >

    <When it comes to Syria, Paul said he believes the best hope for defeating a resolution to authorize military action will come in the House. He reiterated his view that an attack on Syria would create more turbulence and danger in the region, and may not even disable the Syrian government’s ability to launch chemical attacks. >

    Rand Paul: Filibuster a possibility on Syria vote
    I find myself vaguely agreeing with Paul. Something's not right with the world.

    In any case, a principled filibuster is something I can respect; as opposed to the tea party weirdness of Obamaphobia obstructionism.

    US even help block UN sanctions against Iraq for use of chemical weapons against Iran.

    This is old news. But conservatives will never accept that their hero Reagan was a war criminal who not only armed Saddam with WMD but trained and supported jihadists in Afghanistan against the evil empire of Russia, with its schools for girls, court-system and road building.

    Ironically, It was Jimmy Carter that started that policy. July 3, 1979 President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to Mujahideen.
    CRG -- The CIA's Intervention in Afghanistan

    Reagan just expanded Carter policy.
