Targets have included the United States and several other Western nations. Each of these groups have offices in Baghdad and receive training, logistical assistance, and financial aid from the government of Iraq.

    In April 2002, Saddam Hussein increased from $10,000 to $25,000 the money offered to families of Palestinian suicide/homicide bombers.



    About 100,000 Iraqis died in Bush's war in Iraq.

    Right now the relatives and fellow tribesmen of those people are looking for some payback.

    Think about it.

    You don't know a wit about the body armor issue, okay? There is a lot more to that story, then whether someone shipped out armor or not. Much has to do with Clinton on this as well. Advancement in armor is base on R&D spending. Clinton budget cuts had a great deal to do with many technology areas suffering later on when the war started. Lightweight body armor is specific to the threat they are designed for. Threats changed, and tons of vendors were involved in building it. Quality control also plays a big part, and was affected by the fact that armor systems were being built 24/7 and that the designed had to change based on changed in enemy tactics that made it very difficult to keep up. You can't rev up R&D one day have have production armor the next, and that's what happened.

    So your statement taken into the correct context is total bull****, and unsubstantiated.

    Undeniably the worst president in american history. Not even close.



    Wrong.

    Bush is far from the worst, but he is in the bottom third.

    He did some good things. He did some not so good things. I'd give him slightly over 55% approval rating.

    Bush didn't tell any more untruths about Iraq than his predecessor, his predecessor's administration, and high ranking Democrats did.

    Bush took the USA into an unnecessary, expensive war in Iraq which didn't make the USA any safer but did help Iran.
