Learn some history Dude.
Saddam used nerve agents on his own people in the 1980's. Guess who was President then and in fact which U.S. president sold him those WMD'd? Did that President take any action against Saddam back then?
care to guess.
By the time Little Dunbya came around, Saddam didn't have any WMD's. The years of embargo imposed by President Clinton and that missile strike (which the GOP said was a ruse to take the spot light off more important things-a stained blue dress) destroyed Saddam's WMD capability
in case you forgot, they didn't find any WMD's and the Pentagon's report confirmed there weren't any.
"koma"
"Stoopid" the reason no WMD's were found? They were sent to Syria. assad is now using them to kill women and children.
Why you bring up Bush 1 or 2 is beyond me. Bush 1 was mediocre, Bush 2 something less. nobama makes both of them look pretty damn good. Best president in the last 20 years? clinton and he had the morals of an alley cat.

WHERE ARE THE CROOKED LYING UN ?? ISRAEL ARE KILLERS AND ABUSE HUMANS .

ISRAEL:
WHOREHOUSE OF THE MIDDLE EAST

Amnesty International, in its 2005 Report on Discrimination Against Women in Israel says:
Trafficking of women for forced prostitution has occurred over a number of years but appears to have been compounded in the past 15 years by several factors, including increased links between traffickers in Israel and former Soviet republics, in the wake of the large wave of immigration of citizens of these countries to Israel…

…Many women are lured to work in Israel under false pretense and are then forced into the sex industry. While many are reportedly aware that they will be working as sex workers, they are not aware they will be subject to violent and exploitative environments, working seven days a week and up to 18 hours a day for extremely low salaries or no salaries at all. Many are subjected to other serious human rights violations, including rape, deprivation of their liberty, and debt-bondage. Women forced to work as sex workers are reportedly also frequently subjected to threats of abuse and even murder. Half the women interviewed by the Hotline for Migrant Workers were effectively incarcerated by their “pimps” and, according to a 2003 survey, almost half of all women “sold” to pimps reported that policemen were among their clients.

According to a report by the Parliamentary Committee of Inquiry on the Trafficking in Women (Summary Report) issued in early 2005, some 3,000 to 5,000 women are brought annually into Israel and forced to work as sex workers and some 10,000 were estimated to be currently in the country…

Most of the women known to have been trafficked into Israel are from Ukraine, Moldova, Uzbekistan, and Russia, and are brought into Israel through the Egyptian-Israeli border. In the course of their journey, many are reportedly raped before traffickers sell them for $8,000-$10,000…

1 Jewish Michael Specter, in his article,“Slave Traders Lure Slavic Women,” confirms Amnesty’s report:

[In Israel] police officials estimate that there are 25,000 paid sexual transactions everyday. Brothels are ubiquitous…Once they [the women] cross the border [into Israel] their passports will be confiscated [by pimps], their freedoms curtailed, and what little money they have taken from them…The Tropicana in Tel Aviv’s bustling business district, is one of the busiest bordellos. The women who work there, like nearly all prostitutes in Israel today, are Russian. Their bosses, however, are not.‘Israelis love Russian girls,’ said Jacob Golan, who owns this and two other clubs,‘….They are blond and good-looking and different than us…And they are desperate. They are ready to do anything for money.’ 2
Stop making a fool of yourself in this forum, please!

Your racist hatred of Israel will be punished with fire after the Muslims you defend so much cut off your neck!!!

Here's hoping Congress does a little refresh homework, and does NOT let the amped up war mongering, wanna be missile lobbing jack aye's just cut loose on clueless heartstrings of libuhrulTic bleeding terrorist sympathizing and/or the hype of cowboy glory days dreams, and deplete or exhaust our military resources to extinction.
Especially being as the situation has already been screwed up enough.

With Sooo many SHIPS full of BOOTS of American lives in place ALREADY-Congress DOES needs to stand up and DEMAND some GROUND RULES and Regulations in this game of battleships in the faces of. Two years ago (upon the invasion of LIBYA) would've been better, but better late than never.

Of SALT I, SALT II, START and the-

Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty

Officially Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons Tests in the Atmosphere, in Outer Space and Under Water

Treaty that prohibits all tests of nuclear weapons except those conducted underground. U.S.-Soviet test-ban talks began after concerns arose in the 1940s and '50s about the dangers of radioactive fallout from above-ground nuclear tests. These talks made little progress until the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. In the following year, Britain, the U.S., and the Soviet Union signed the treaty, and more than 100 other governments soon followed. France and China were notable nonsignatories. In 1996 the treaty was replaced by the Comprehensive Test-Ban Treaty, which will not take effect until it is signed by all 44 countries with nuclear power plants. India refuses to do so on the ground that the treaty lacks disarmament provisions and permits nonexplosive testing. See also Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty.
----------
*Notable references of question: WHO has NOT signed onto this treaty.

----------

If there was any arms race in the region, India has won it, at whatever the cost may be. But the claims to have good neighbourly relations, with MFN-status, no-war pact or no-first-use nuclear arsenal are just a dream seemingly never to come true.

In April this year India yanked open the door of the exclusive ICBM (International Ballistic Missile) club with the first test of Agni-V. Now, if DRDO is to be believed, India has quietly gate-crashed into an even more exclusive club of nuclear-tipped submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs). The most ironic part of this achievement on part of India is that New Delhi had been able to successfully keep it as a secret black project.

The annual awards function of the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) the other day witnessed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh handing over the technology leadership award to a scientist, A K Chakrabarti, of the Hyderabad-based DRDL lab, for the successful development of the countrys first SLBM. This capability has been acquired only by four nations, the US, Russia, France and China.

Here' hint, look up the following words
1. War
2. Combat
3, Combat Units

I also notice that you had nothing substantial to post in response to my posts, only idiotic babble and insults.

but then when you got nothin...that's all you can come back with. Almost like a bunch of 2nd graders in the school yard.

You're either a clueless braindead IDIOT, or a lying rabid wolf TRYING to pretend to be anything else but.

Definitely one or the other

At best-That's good old POLITICS....of the THUG and LYING, war mongering entitleMentalcase mentality.

And that it awrl Bushes fault mouthing of nothing but rabid wolf DUNG, needs to be shoved back down your own throat of putrid hypcocrisy.

It's time for the CURRENT admin to STOP continually LYING through it's teeth about what it's been doing for some time now (Libya, BENGHAZI, the IRS debaucle etc etc ) and tell the American public the TRUTH for a change.

The best we can hope for now, is that this cowboy-kid hollyweird and whineduhm type acting prezidink hasn't been dividing the brains that be when it comes to protecting America, because he sure has it all ramped up and America has the RIGHT to know just exactly what is are his flipping battle plans, short term AND long.
HE might think he's "in control" of the world, but the GROWN UPS all over it know better!!!!!!!!!!
