You keep harping on this Carol conveniently forgetting that Saddam's use of gas against the Kurds took place under the Reagan administration and was largely ignored because he was out ally. He didn't have any WMD liar, the Iraq Survey Group came to that conclusion in 2004.<quoted text>
Ward Churchill and you need to look at the source. Placing blame on anyone or anything but the source of those mass graves, mass genocide and chemical weapons used on women and children is both narrow-mindedly simplistic and disturbingly complacent.
The atrocities committed against women and children in Islamic countries should be enough for you bleeding heart liberals to sit up and take notice. But ideology is more important than human rights when it comes to preserving your anti-American propaganda.
Democrats and the UN knew Saddam had WMDs. Post 9/11, he became an imminent threat.
Maybe if Saddam had been left alone to unleash his biological and chemical weapons on us and the rest of the world, Mr. Churchill would have something else to write about.
Frankly, his kind of "intelligent short-sightedness" is more like just plain biased ignorance.
Our invasion of that country unleashed sectarian violence including that against Christians and allowed Al Qaeda to operate freely in a place where they previously had no presence. Just how many suicide bombings were there in Iraq before we invaded stupid?
Ten years later there are increasing reports of birth defects in Iraq due to our use of depleted Uranium munitions.
There's also the fact that Iran now has access to Iraqi airspace to supply the Assad regime init's war against its own people.
You're an idiot Carol.
