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!!

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.

The Prevention of Genocide Act of 1988 was a United States Senate bill to punish Iraq for chemical weapons attacks on the Kurds at Halabja during the Iran–Iraq War. It was defeated after intense lobbying of Congress by the Reagan-Bush White House which then supported Iraq's Saddam Hussein as a counterbalance to post-revolutionary Iran.

FDR??

What a nitwit.

This is the Obama forum, and you're ignorant enough to go back 12 Presidents to come up with a rebuttal against Dems.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

If not for FDR, you'd be saluting the Swastika today.

I forgot. You likely already do salute a Swastika, skinhead!!

And you're too stupid to know the definition of a World War.

You lose. You're what you've been all your useless life; a loser.

There is - the North Koreans should storm the Bastille, so to speak. What, their chubby little titular leader is going to order them nuked? That's gonna leave a mark.

Not disputing that, but bet they don't pay minimum wage and taxes for all the family members who work there.
Probably not but the neither did the good old Mericans that they replaced. Actually, in my area lottery and beer-wine sales are audited, not sure about cigarettes, snoose and those blunt thingy's.

They collect and forward sales taxes, they pay property taxes, signage and all the other bullsht__and most importantly if those sorts of merchants weren't occupying those stores and strip centers, no one would be.
