North Korea tested it's first nuclear device in 2006.

Guess who was President??

Hint: Nickname 'DUBYA'

What did he do about it?? Nothing!!

You're admitting Bush was a coward, unwilling to stand up to China and take N. Korea out before they had a full scaled Nuclear Program. And we're paying for it today.

And you didn't even realize what you'd done!!

Thanks for being so ignorant, Blabby!!

For the record I sympathize immensely with the deprivations and cruelty the ordinary N. Koreans have to suffer and wish there was something to be done about it.

And as far as your assertion that "American females, in particular white ones, don't care about any women but themselves," I disagree - just last week, I sent off my annual donation to Give a Goat: an organization which donates goats to women in the Sudan, for the purpose of facilitating the women's self employment as dairy farmers, and in hope of the subsequent elevation of their standard of living. I believe in paying it forward, you know...

Weird how something as simple as a goat or two can alter the course of a life.

How Reagan Armed Saddam with Chemical Weapons

While the August 18 NYT article added new details about the extent of US military collaboration with Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during Iraq’s 1980-88 war with Iran, it omitted the most outrageous aspect of the scandal: not only did Ronald Reagan’s Washington turn a blind-eye to the Hussein regime’s repeated use of chemical weapons against Iranian soldiers and Iraq’s Kurdish minority, but the US helped Iraq develop its chemical, biological and nuclear weapons programs.

Nor did the NYT dwell on the extreme cynicism and hypocrisy of President George Bush II’s administration’s citing of those same terrible atrocities–which were disregarded at the time by Washington–and those same weapons programs–which no longer exist, having been dismantled and destroyed in the decade following the 1991 Gulf War–to justify a massive new war against the people of Iraq.

A reader of the NYT article (or the tens of thousands of other articles written after the war drive against Iraq began in earnest soon after September 11, 2001) would have looked in vain for the fact that many of the US politicians and ruling class pundits who demanded war against Hussein–in particular, the one of the most bellicose of the Bush administration’s "hawks", defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld–were up to their ears in Washington’s efforts to cultivate, promote and excuse Hussein in the past.

http://www.counterpunch.org/2004/06/17/how-re...

Iraq’s 1982 removal from Washington’s official list of states that support terrorism meant that the Hussein regime was now eligible for US economic and military aid, and was able to purchase advanced US technology that could also be used for military purposes.

Why didn't the Jews handle their own "civic responsibility" during Hitler's reign of terror?
Because they were pussies, who couldn't even work up the energy for a sit-in, and too cheap to hire a paid assassin?

Actually, there were several bands of Jewish guerillas, who DID try to handle Hitler's oppression by fighting back...but for the most part, the Jews huddled in their shtetls and ghettos, encouraged by their own people to remain there, until it was time to board the trains and subsequently file into the ovens. Don't tell me we care as much about any other segment of world population - the Sudanese, the Serbs, the Somalis, etc., are just not as well represented in the US as the Jews have historically been.

<quoted text>Ignoring the fact that this entire post is a non-sequitor, I have one question: Why did the people of Iraq fail to handle their own civic responsibility in these cases?
The United States is not a global police force, and the Husseins were puppets, who we helped to put in power in the first place. Saddam eventually ran like a whiny pissypants into a spider hole. His sons were killed by Iraqis, who should have done it a lot sooner. The only reason we were there was their oil reserves - Saddam scared the whiny pissypants at the Pentagon into believing he'd burn them all, and that the American companies invested in them would be ruined.
Money, not the spreading of Democracy, and CERTAINLY not defending the flower of Iraqi womanhood, was the entire impetus of that invasion.
Funny Bubblehead...

I don't see you also whining about Lybia so Mr. Hypocrite, I ask you:

Why did the people of Lybia fail to handle their own civic responsibility in their case?

Was it because they knew Obama would follow the French in and that they later could kill our ambassador and patriots, only to have nothing done except for Obama and the Democrats/corrupt media to sweep things under the rug.

Hypocrite on, Shovel Head...

In 1983, the Reagan administration approved the sale of 60 Hughes helicopters to Iraq in 1983 "for civilian use". However, as Phythian pointed out, these aircraft could be "weaponised" within hours of delivery. Then US Secretary of State George Schultz and commerce secretary George Baldridge also lobbied for the delivery of Bell helicopters equipped for "crop spraying". It is believed that US-supplied choppers were used in the 1988 chemical attack on the Kurdish village of Halabja, which killed 5000 people.

With the Reagan administration’s connivance, Baghdad immediately embarked on a massive militarisation drive. This US-endorsed military spending spree began even before Iraq was delisted as a terrorist state, when the US commerce department approved the sale of Italian gas turbine engines for Iraq’s naval frigates.

Soon after, the US agriculture department’s Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) guaranteed to repay loans–in the event of defaults by Baghdad–banks had made to Iraq to buy US-grown commodities such as wheat and rice. Under this scheme, Iraq had three years to repay the loans, and if it could not the US taxpayers would have to cough up.

According to William Blum, writing in the August 1998 issue of the Progressive, Sam Gejdenson, chairperson of a Congressional subcommittee investigating US exports to Iraq, disclosed that from 1985 until 1990 "the US government approved 771 licenses [only 39 were rejected] for the export to Iraq of $1.5 billion worth of biological agents and high-tech equipment with military application …

"The US spent virtually an entire decade making sure that Saddam Hussein had almost whatever he wanted… US export control policy was directed by US foreign policy as formulated by the State Department, and it was US foreign policy to assist the regime of Saddam Hussein."

A 1994 US Senate report revealed that US companies were licenced by the commerce department to export a "witch’s brew" of biological and chemical materials, including bacillus anthracis (which causes anthrax) and clostridium botulinum (the source of botulism). The American Type Culture Collection made 70 shipments of the anthrax bug and other pathogenic agents.

The report also noted that US exports to Iraq included the precursors to chemical warfare agents, plans for chemical and biological warfare facilities and chemical warhead filling equipment. US firms supplied advanced and specialised computers, lasers, testing and analysing equipment. Among the better-known companies were Hewlett Packard, Unisys, Data General and Honeywell.

On September 8, 1988, the US Senate passed the Prevention of Genocide Act, which would have imposed sanctions on the Hussein regime. Immediately, the Reagan administration announced its opposition to the bill, calling it "premature". The White House used its influence to stall the bill in the House of Representatives. When Congress did eventually pass the bill, the White House did not implement it.

Washington’s political, military and economic sweetheart deals with the Iraqi dictator came under even more stress when, in August 1989, FBI agents raided the Atlanta branch of the Rome-based Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL) and uncovered massive fraud involving the CCC loan guarantee scheme and billions of dollars worth of unauthorised "off-the-books" loans to Iraq.

BNL Atlanta manager Chris Drougal had used the CCC program to underwrite programs that had nothing to do with agricultural exports. Using this covert set-up, Hussein’s regime tried to buy the most hard-to-get components for its nuclear weapons and missile programs on the black market.
