I'm still laughing at this line: "Just ended two decades earlier"<quoted text>
Why didn't Clinton do anything about the genocide in Rwanda?
Why didn't the UN do anything about Saddam gassing the Kurds?
Why didn't liberals demand retaliation?
There was an 8 year war between Iran and Iraq in the 80s. When it began, Iran was still holding Americans hostage. Saddam became the enemy of our enemy. We were willing to look the other way so long as he didn't challenge our interests. Just like we did in Egypt. Just like we did in China.
At the time, it wasn't politically correct to "police the world". The Vietnam War had just ended less than two decades earlier.
It's shameful the world watched and did nothing.
It's even more shameful liberals called Bush a war criminal when we finally did do something.
Don't even try to say Bush invaded Iraq because Sadam gassed Kurds. You people keep searching for excuses for Bush when he lied to start a war about oil.
