It's pretty damn lame when all you come back with is dictator or socialist when one contradicts the other. You know, its because of YOUR lot the US is still minting pennies, never changed to metric, took a zillion years to bring in compulsory seat belt laws that even approach a nation wide view, still allows assualt weapons to be freely purchased, a slow uptake on anti smoking & abortion laws, Health care reform 30yrs too late,totally ignores the science on the greenhouse effect and thinks God is the answer to everything. What you can thank God for at least is blessing you with enough Liberals to put man on the moon & everything else that advanced the country because none of your lot even come close.

Heh. Not actually until 1955 or so though---

1935ish-
Motivated by his cousin Theodore, who continued to urge young men of privileged backgrounds to enter public service, Roosevelt (D)looked for an opportunity to launch a career in politics. That opportunity came in 1910, when Democratic Party leaders of Dutchess county, New York, persuaded him to undertake an apparently futile attempt to win a seat in the state senate. Roosevelt, whose branch of the family had always voted Democratic, hesitated only long enough to make sure his distinguished Republican Party relative would not speak against him...
Yet by 1935 Roosevelt knew he had to do more. Although the economy had begun to rise from its nadir during the winter of 1932–33, it was still far below its level before the stock market crash of 1929. Millions of Americans were still unemployed—many had been jobless for several years—and the destitute were beginning to listen to demagogues who criticized the New Deal for not going far enough. Roosevelt foresaw the possibility that in the 1936 presidential election he would face a significant third-party challenge from the left.....
The “Second New Deal”
By the fall of 1934, the measures passed during The Hundred Days had produced a limited degree of recovery; more importantly, they had regenerated hope that the country would surmount the crisis. Although the New Deal had alienated conservatives, including many businessmen, most Americans supported Roosevelt’s programs. That support manifested itself in the congressional elections of 1934, in which Democrats added to their already substantial majorities in both houses.

To meet this threat, Roosevelt (D) asked Congress to pass additional New Deal legislation—sometimes called the “Second New Deal”—in 1935.(Encyclopædia Britannica.])
----------

1932:

A mass movement of Kuwaiti youth called the "Free Kuwaiti Movement" defies British rule and submits a petition requesting the Iraqi government to reunify Kuwait and Iraq.[3]

1937:

Large oil reserves discovered by the US-British Kuwait Oil Company. Exploitation is delayed by World War II, but thereafter fuels the country's development into a modern commercial centre.
----------

1955:

U.S.(Eisenhower-R) and Britain inaugurate the Baghdad Pact, an anti-Soviet security agreement for Middle Eastern nations, including Iraq. The Baghdad Pact is widely perceived in the Arab world as alliance of regimes subordinate to British and U.S. power, and it is greeted with popular protests and riots. Nuri es-Said responds to the protests by jailing opposition leaders who demand that Iraq withdraw from the pact. However, he also begins secret negotiations with the U.S. and Britain for the return of Kuwait to Iraq in order to placate Iraqi national sentiment.

History
1954 February: Turkey signs a Pact of Mutual Cooperation with Pakistan.
1955 February 24: A military agreement is signed between Iraq and Turkey, and the term "Baghdad Pact" begins to be used.
— Iran, Pakistan and Britain join the Baghdad Pact.
1959 March: The new republican regime of Iraq withdraws the country from the alliance.
1965: Pakistan tries to get help from their allies in their war against India, but without success.
1971: In a new war with India, Pakistan tries once again unsuccessfully to get allied assistance.
1979: The new Islamic regime of Iran withdraws the country from CENTO, as the alliance now is known.

Jump ahead a few more years--and...
Remember, Saddam had depleted his own nation, and was INDEBTED to Kuwait.
1988:
August - Iran and Iraq agree a cease fire.[4]
"The war with Iran has left Iraq in ruins. When Saddam Hussein launched his eight year war against Iran, Iraq had $40 billion in hard currency reserves.
But by the end of the war, his nation is $80 billion in debt.
Iraq is pressed to repay the $80 billion to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, with interest.
While Iraq was distracted by its war, Kuwait had accumulated 900 square miles of Iraqi territory by advancing its border with Iraq northward. This was presented to Iraq as a fait accompli and it gave Kuwait access to the Rumaila oil field.
Some of that stuff...just kind of well, WELL before any "Bush" time-eh Realtime?

It's hard to believe, but you're 'bout as ignorant as ol' Ed!!

So who was Saddam's ally during the entire Iran-Iraq War??

Ronny Raygun was a big supporter of Saddam in the 1980's. Provided him with intel about Iranian movements, and the infamous chemical weapons arsenal.

Remember the picture of Rumsfeld and Saddam in 1983??

http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB82/

""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].

What was the Reagan administration's response? A State Department account indicates that the administration had decided to limit its "efforts against the Iraqi CW program to close monitoring because of our strict neutrality in the Gulf war, the sensitivity of sources, and the low probability of achieving desired results." But the department noted in late November 1983 that "with the essential assistance of foreign firms, Iraq ha[d] become able to deploy and use CW and probably has built up large reserves of CW for further use. Given its desperation to end the war, Iraq may again use lethal or incapacitating CW, particularly if Iran threatens to break through Iraqi lines in a large-scale attack" [Document 25]. The State Department argued that the U.S. needed to respond in some way to maintain the credibility of its official opposition to chemical warfare, and recommended that the National Security Council discuss the issue.""



So why did Reagan cover up Saddam's use of chemicals, which he knew for certain??

Curious and curioser..........

For once you are correct, partly. One can seal his college records and that is what cowards do. Those who have nothing to hide release their records, president nobama has not, he is a coward. Does he have something to hide?
One more lie, you say I am a birther. Flat azs lie, I do not doubt nobama's legal standing to be president, I just think he is a lousy in his job.
Do you ever post without lying?

No you f*cking moron. You don't have to take any action to seal your college records.

Yes, crimes, felonies at the highest levels of Bush's Administration. Scooter Libby, at Cheney's behest, leaked the Plame name all over official Washington, knowing it would spread and be leaked to the press, but untracable to Cheney/Libby.
..........
""In October 2005, Libby was indicted by a federal grand jury concerning the investigation of the leak of the covert identity of Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame Wilson.""

Get your head out of your butt on this stupid defense you're attempting. You appear as dumb as Dweeb.
Libby was convicted on two counts of lying in the Plame outing. Just what do you think the lying was about?? Watergsate??
I love how you nitwits throw around the socialist/dictator stuff with Obama, while it was Bush/Cheney that set into motion BIG BROTHER, with the PAtriot Act.
Haven't been any felonies in Obama's Admin, have there??
