    but Glaspie's cable has been released at the Bush Library and placed online by the Margaret Thatcher Foundation.

    “ We can see that you have deployed massive numbers of troops in the south. Normally that would be none of our business, but when this happens in the context of your threats against Kuwait, then it would be reasonable for us to be concerned. For this reason, I have received an instruction to ask you, in the spirit of friendship — not confrontation — regarding your intentions: Why are your troops massed so very close to Kuwait's borders?



    “ We have no opinion on your Arab-Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait. Secretary Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction, first given to Iraq in the 1960s, that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I see that as more of a "we're ok if you use whatever means necessary to resolve your dispute with Kuwait" not so much "we're ok if you invade an annex Kuwait.".

    That makes sense. But what is left unsaid by these cables is how Saddam took it. He was already receiving Intel from us and covert aid. He probably thought that what April said was more or less a tacit do what you will and in public we will condemn you, but continue to aid you since you are an enemy of our enemy.

    Seems to me that whoever told you that selectively forgot to mention that those UNMOVIC, UNCSOM and ISG "fancy weapons inspectors" found a huge amount of WMDs in Iraq. Did that very relevant and factual piece of history get lost in their obviously partisan memory hole?
