    You have nothing to say about the US building Saddam's Iraq into the power it became, in full knowledge of their chemical weapon use against Iran and its own people?

    The best you can offer in defense is the Russians were doing it too?

    According to several here, Khadafi is just too powerful for the world too handle without the US.

    That's probably one of the most idiotic comments I have ever read on this board.

    It counts that those two individuals used the bomb but does not prove that all current-day liberals like nuclear warfare/weapons.

    He's more powerful than the Somali militias and look out that turned out for the UN.

Do you think that WAR is any different simply because you wish to spin a supposed HUMANITRAIAN sphere of propaganda around it? Its the HYPOCRISY that I am pointing out and the ILLOGICAL EXTREMES that the non critical thinking left will go to in burying themselves simply to prove they know how to use a shovel. It all started from the NET from a place headquartered in NY and funded by the PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT.

    I would be the first to agree that this megalomanic should be removed from power, but don't be HYPOCRITIAL in the nature in which ALL DESPOTS must be removed.....there are no PEACEFUL full scale protest movements, i.e., REVOLUTIONS....its VIOLENCE period, Just as we are finding out when push comes to shove. What, did you characters really expect these theolgicial and secular despots alike were going to simply lay down their scepters because of a political movement regardless of the numbers involved? There is NOTHING HUMANE about war.

    There is documented evidence that some of these events where planned and executed with the help of certain US GOVERNMENT agencies and with the help of funding by George Soros' "Open Society Foundations".
    Have you any proof that "by the socialist left and the Internet""?

    With no troops on the ground this is a waste of time and money. No one is planning to put troops on the ground in Libya, so we aren't supporting anything. This is just a very expensive exercise in futility.

    War was not declared in Iraq or Afghanistan are they not wars? This has nothing to do with safeguarding the intrerests of civilians. It has everything to do with oil. Women and children where killed today in Tripoli by Obama's cruise missiles. The US has no business getting involved in a civil war when we are already stretched thin. Ahmadinejad was killing his own people during the green revolution we didn't help the protestors there. Yeman, and Bahrain killing there own people are we going to launch cruise misseles there next? BTW Sadam was killing the civilians of Iraq. Hell he used chemical weapons on the Kurds in the north of Iraq. Why is what we did in Iraq an unjust war but bombing Libya is fine? I see its only ok when a Democrat President does it. Liberals are such hypocrites.

    I can't disagree. The rebs can't win the war on the ground and we can't win a war from the air. The reality of the battlefield.

    United States support for Iraq during the Iran

    "The National Security Archive at George Washington University has published a series of declassified U.S. documents detailing the U.S. embrace of Saddam Hussein in the early 1980’s. The collection of documents, published on the Web, include briefing materials, diplomatic reports of two Rumsfeld trips to Baghdad, reports on Iraqi chemical weapons use during the Reagan administration and presidential directives that ensure U.S. access to the region's oil and military expansion."

    "the documents we recently posted on the Internet demonstrate that the administration had U.S. intelligence reports indicating that Iraq was using chemical weapons, both against Iran and against Iraqi Kurdish insurgents, in the early 1980s, at the same time that it decided to support Iraq in the war. So U.S. awareness of Iraq's chemical warfare did not deter it from initiating the policy of providing intelligence and military assistance to Iraq. There were shipments of chemical weapons precursors from several U.S. companies to Iraq during the 1980s, but the U.S. government would deny that it was aware that these exports were intended to be used in the production of chemical weapons."

    "I believe that when the U.S. became aware of Iraq's chemical weapons use it should have used what influence it had to stop it. Doing so was actually incumbent upon the U.S. under international law. I believe the U.S. should have used its international influence, which is enormous, to do everything it could to end this war. It was an atrocity, resulting in hundreds of thousands of casualties."

    "The U.S., which followed developments in the Iran-Iraq war with extraordinary intensity, had intelligence confirming Iran's accusations, and describing Iraq's "almost daily" use of chemical weapons, concurrent with its policy review and decision to support Iraq in the war [Document 24]. The intelligence indicated that Iraq used chemical weapons against Iranian forces, and, according to a November 1983 memo, against "Kurdish insurgents" as well [Document 25].

    So Wiki claims that Ronald Reagan assisted in the genocide of the Kurds?

    What do you think his motive might have been?

    In fact what do you feel the motive of any Americans was in committing genocide in Iraq?

    But whatever their reason you must have been pleased when George Bush out an end to all of it and finally freed the Iraqi people from the evil that was Saddam Hussein, and compensated in some small way for the sins of his predecessors.
