    I've not seen any credible explanations for our immoral war on the Iraqi people for control of their oil, nor did I expect that you would be able to provide them.

    All the evidence shows the plan for military action due to the oil situation was in place years before our attack and absolutely no threat to the US was found in Iraq, so you are right there is nothing you can do.

    The health and welfare of billions of people depends on the free flow of oil. Saddam Hussain sought to get control of roughly half the worlds oil, and threatened to withhold supplies unless his various terms and conditions were met. Throw in his documented effort to become a world power through weapons of mass destruction, and the guy became a real problem. Play nice, or get squashed like a bug under a big stick. Saddam became a bug. Well, a bug at the end of a rope.

    So, the true immoral people are those who would have let him do that, so that hundreds of millions of people would have been put in harms way, and made to suffer.

    Why is it that so many supported such an evil person?

    How many times are you gonna tell me that you absolutely reject my perspective and reasoning, and expect a reply? Just write me off as an idiot and go on about your work. Closed minded is closed minded, I'm a debater not a witchdoctor! I cannot de-program you.

    The US embargo is what is alleged to have killed 400k children. Saddam was not worth one USA life to taxpayers. Saddam's OIL is worth trillions of dollars to USA subsidized major energy, think OIL, CORPORATIONS. A lot of those ENERGY Corps are not taxpayers.

    Yeah... alleged by truthers, Saddam cronies, unabombers and fundie muzzies. The rest of us are aware that physical evidence proves Saddam sold baby formula and cereal enough to have prevented the starvation of 400k children. That's fact - physical evidence. Also fact - the sanctions did not involve food or medical supplies (further, food-for-oil was an attempt to directly boost the food supply). But screw the facts, huh?

    Yeah... he was under sanctions that had nothing to do with food or medical supplies and he sold formula and cereal to the tune of 400k... Occam's razor, buddy.

    No one prevented the feeding of those children except Saddam, as circumstance and actual physical evidence has clearly established.


    And, hey, if one thinks 911 was an inside job then I can't blame one for ignoring everything and believing that Saddam did nothing wrong. When someone starts at Truther, another cannot defeat them on foreign policy - it's impossible.

    What makes you think 9-11 was an inside jog. The great and inimitable GWShiiteForBrains did nothing to prevent 9-11, but that doesn't necesarily mean he caused it, don't you think?
