dude said - "Yet much of his findings will survive forever"

do you mind defining your use of the word "forever" in context here?

i personally believe and have much scriptual precedent to back it, that the wicked and their Godless theories will soon be forgotten once the Redeemed begin their eternal journey:-)

Well, we know right off the bat, that Faraday didn't consult The Dave Nelson before making any of his discoveries.
WTF was Faraday thinking?
He was a great analytical and scientific thinker who didn't let belief get in the way of experimentation.

No one gives a crap about Kuwait you say.
This sounds just like you said it.

The Gulf War (2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991), codenamed Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) was a war waged by coalition forces from 34 nations led by the United States against Iraq in response to Iraq's invasion and annexation of Kuwait.

Sure Saddam's threats to other things and places apply, including scud launches into Israel.
But the gist of the matter is much simpler.

"The initial conflict to expel Iraqi troops from Kuwait began with an aerial bombardment on 17 January 1991. This was followed by a ground assault on 24 February. This was a decisive victory for the Coalition forces, who liberated Kuwait and advanced into Iraqi territory."

Everyone tends to care about people being bullied by assholes, especially nations being bullied by them.

There's no doubt the Iraqis were bullies back then, with the Kuwaitis victims. By 2003, different story...

We did, and expelled the thieves, returned home and waited for the next UN resolution and WMD inspectors to call the next shot. What are you making pointless assertions about now?

By 2003 the main theme was 1991 didn't quite say it.
Especially since you try to circumvent sanctions, and defy the victorious arrogantly in effort to
wiggle out of the grasp of the will of all the people of the free world.

The Baathist's forces conquered Kuwait in the first week of August ...August 7th US forces are deployed in the KSA ( kingdom of saudi arabia )..

Ostensibly to liberate Kuwait ( 7 months later )...Look , "Aura" how could the Administration be forthright and actually exclaim " We're gonna put your sons and daughters in harms way ; to protect the Saudi oil fields ! "

The Gulf War.

OPEC was geting too greedy. Hurting our economy.

Bush let the gorilla loose.

Bush made OPEC pay for caging the gorilla, at a litle profit, and OPEC got less greedy because the gorilla was still there.

Our economy picked up again because of cheaper oil and Clinton claims the credit.
