    No. We don’t. Not sure about the dead people.

    …and if you liked Iraq, you’ll LOVE Iran.

    I may be wrong, but I believe Mr. Danziger is referring to the relative calm and progressive Iraq that existed before the Gulf wars. Women had more rights than in most Muslim countries today, Christianity was accepted by most, the citizens had 24 hour electricity and utilities. It was quite hospitable to foreigners. There were no terrorists beside Sadaam and his family. HW’s ambassador with the remark that we had no interest in Kuwait started the whole thing.

    The US WERE greeted as liberators. For about 15 minutes. Then the US Viceroy L. Paul Bremer announced that every employed Iraqi was fired, since every employed Iraqi was presumed to have gotten his job because he supported Saddam. Creating a group of millions of armed men with nothing better to do than try to evict the invaders dressed up as liberators.


    Those suspected of opposing the invasion were rounded up, and subjected to ‘enhanced interrogation’ (it’s illegal under US law to call electrodes to the genitals or attacks by guard dogs or anything else ‘torture’ if it is authorised by the US President).


    Had the the Viceroy been a MacArthur instead of a Brenner, Iraq would now be a peaceful, democratic, strong, prosperous rabidly pro-US ally. But MacArthur was dead, so that didn’t happen. Instead, the Friends of the Bush Jr administration got trillions, and the US got more enemies..

    Simple fact is, bad as he was for some, pre-GHW’s war, and failure to support Shia in the south, the majority of Iraqis WERE “better off”. When we screwed up in 91, it started the REAL oppression, like draining the wetlands in the south, and other “actions”. It wasn’t JUST “W” trying to get even for a proposed “hit” on the old man. But the Cheney/Rumsfeld policies idiot Bremmer implemented certainly didn’t help either.

    U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, in fact used those very words to Saddam, thereby o.k.ing the Iraqi invasion.

    You sort of left out gassing his own people with chemical weapons, fighting a 10 year war with Iran, secret police grabbing folks and torturing them..yes sounds like the peaceful utopia you just described. Are you really that foolish?

    onguard, onguard, onguard… Always howling into the wind, as if the wind would care… We have the Internet now, my friend. Lies and distortions are no longer easy to spread or maintain. McCarthy is dead, don’tchaknow?

    I’ve generally thought of the ‘91 Gulf War as a necessary evil . . . like it or not, the world could not allow Saddam’s armies to roll on down the south side of the Gulf – Kuwait, Saudi oil coast, Bahrain, Qatar . . .
