    Well, didn't you say Bush made **** up about Saddam? Wonder where he got that from, huh?



    On June 26, 1993, Clinton ordered a cruise missile attack on the Iraqi Intelligence Service's (IIS) principal command and control complex in Baghdad, publicly announced as retaliation for the assassination attempt by the IIS on former President George H. W. Bush while he was visiting Kuwait in April of that year to commemorate a coalition victory over Iraq in the Persian Gulf War. Fourteen cruise missiles were launched from the USS Peterson and nine were launched from the USS Chancellorsville. Sixteen of the missiles hit the target; three struck a residential area, killing nine civilians and wounding 12. Four of the missiles were unaccounted for.[20] This strike was in violation of international law, although that point is contentious.[21]


    The UNSCOM team faced resistance from Iraq, which blocked inspections and hid deadly germ agents and warheads.[28] Clinton then threatened military action several times when Iraqi President Saddam Hussein attempted to stall the UNSCOM inspections.[29] To weaken Saddam Hussein's grip of power, Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act into law on October 31, 1998, which instituted a policy of "regime change" against Iraq, though it explicitly stated it did not speak to the use of American. military forces. On December 16–19, 1998, Clinton ordered four days of concentrated air attacks against military installations in Iraq. This was in response to Saddam's refusal to cooperate with UN inspectors. After the bombing, Hussein blocked any further UN inspections and announced its attempt to shoot down Coalition aircraft in the no-fly zones over Iraq. For several years afterward, U.S. and Coalition aircraft routinely attacked hostile Iraqi defense installations in Iraq, in response to what the Clinton administration claimed were "provocations" by the Iraqi military, including antiaircraft fire and radar locks on U.S. and Coalition aircraft.....snip~

    The Clinton Foundation on Wednesday defended its practice of accepting donations from overseas governments, amid concerns from some ethics experts that such contributions are inappropriate at a time when Hillary Clinton is preparing to run for president. A Wall Street Journal review of donations to the Clinton Foundation in 2014 showed the charity received money from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Oman, among others. The donors included Canada’s foreign affairs department, which is promoting the Keystone XL pipeline.

    Saudi Arabia, a previous donor, has given between $10 million and $25 million since the foundation’s creation. An unspecified portion of the money came in 2014.....snip~ <<<<< Imagine that!

    Regardless, this guy is most likely an atheist, who like most all atheist, probably thinks it's a great idea to secularize both the Christian and Islamic world.


    ISIS doesn't operate in Saudi Arabia.
    Then where do they get their massive amounts of money? Just askin'.

    Good gosh. I'm not blaming Obama for the actions of the Saudis, but I'm calling him out for dismissing the Islamic jihad movement as a 1 percent fringe element of Islam. It's not.

    So tell me again, Mr. Obama and his fellow apologists, that 99 percent of Muslims are peace-loving people.

    Tell me how ISIS is just poor, disenfranchised youth that have been lured by "violent extremists" who have hijacked this peaceful religion to carry out atrocities in the name of a religion that is otherwise pure and wholesome.
    only obama is responsible for this alliance with saudis ?

    the other presidents arent ? for instance junior bush ? ( I assume you criticize usa saudi alliance if you have a heart

    I wasn't assigning blame to Obama for this Saudi execution. Just challenging his constant insistence that Islam is a peace-loving religion.
