President Reagan supported Saddam because he was the enemy of the enemy. Presdent Bush's invasion of iraq screwed that whole relationship and empowered Iran beef up their nuke program.
How does Iran relate to 911?
How does the bombing of the Cole relate to either Iraq or Iran and not OBL?
What was the reason for destabling the ME by invading Iraq?
BTW, how did those hostages get home?
Clinton: Iraq has abused its last chance.....
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq. The president said Iraq's refusal to cooperate with U.N. weapons inspectors presented a threat to the entire world. "Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.
"Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton. Clinton also stated that, while other countries also had weapons of mass destruction, Hussein is in a different category because he has used such weapons against his own people and against his neighbors.
"In halting our airstrikes in November, I gave Saddam a chance -- not a license. If we turn our backs on his defiance, the credibility of U.S. power as a check against Saddam will be destroyed," the president explained......snip~

should be made to take the same drug tests they force on the public through legislation.
Our Armed Forces, Police, Firemen, Teachers, Prison Guards, Trade Unions--the list is endless--are all drug-tested.
The "Leaders" of this Nation should be out front on this issue, versus just do as I say .

Chemists Have Solutions .
Revisionist history against just one party has a well-known name.
What shape was Iraq in when the USA was feeding their war machine against Iran in the 1980s?
When we were also involved with multiple arms deals with the Iranians ?
Chemists Have Solutions .
Two, Bush attacked Iraq for oil. Not any threat to the US.
Three, Dick Cheney said years earlier, under GHWB that if we removed Saddam it would destabilize the ME. They knew this & did it anyway.
It was about money, power, & oil. Not some made up threat.
