Skip to comments.George Bush Sr and Iraq's Oil (Zotted by some pinko)
Posted on 11/03/2005 3:17:03 PM PST by DrHamberly
George Bush Senior SHOULD have got rid of Saddam Hussein in 1991. Its 13 years too late now and hundreds of thousands of people have died for his stupidity. When Bush Sr. pulled out of Iraq it was for the same reason America pulled out of Vietnam. There would have been no argument about whether Saddam had "weapons of mass destruction" back then. He did have them, and he used them on Iraqis who had helped the Americans in the Gulf War.
You see, the Americans made a deal with a large number of Iraqis that they would help them overthrow Saddam after the Gulf War was over. But they never did. So these disappointed Iraqis returned home as traitors, and Saddam used the last of his sarin nerve gas on them, killing them all. But where did Saddam Hussein get the Sarin nerve gas?
Well, President Ronald Reagan gave it to him several years before. After the United States helped Saddam into power in 1980, they gave him 30,000 lbs of sarin nerve gas and told Saddam to use it against the Iranians. In return, the Iraqis sold America a large quantity of oil. Oil for weapons.

Idiot. Bush wanted to but the UN and the Democrats would not let him. Neither would the arab coalition. Go back to your ivory tower. Moron.
Signed on today?
Why would you be nervous about it?
Bunkum. Saddam asked us nicely for some stuff to make pesticides. We say "Sure!" And sent it over. The same way we "gave him" bio agents. Iraq wanted to "make medicine" so we sent anthrax samples to Iraq.
"After the United States helped Saddam into power in 1980, they gave him 30,000 lbs of sarin nerve gas and told Saddam to use it against the Iranians."
More lies. No wonder these people are unhinged. They don't belong in *this* reality.
Welcome to FR.
Full Moon already this month?
He can't disprove a lefty lie. I'd be nervous to in that situation.
You're obviously a DU troll. No modern conservative calls Communists "pinkos". That's only in the movies.
2 lines of truth, 467 lines ot total hor$e$h1t
When Bush Sr. pulled out of Iraq it was for the same reason America pulled out of Vietnam.Had he NOT pulled out when he did, these same idiots would be screaming that he had exceeded his UN-approved authorization to kick Saddam out of Kuwait.
Nervous?? You ought to be looking for a bunker. NOOB
Since Nov 2, 2005
Dude...is that anyone to treat a guest?
Did our government actually supply this WMD to Iraq?
As for the quip about telling me to go to my ivory tower I'll go there draggin your little pussy-I-gotta-hide behind words carcus behind me
Right - we should have charged headlong into Saddam's chemical and biological weapons.
It's a lie-- commonly repeated because Donald Rumsfeld visited Iraq in the 1980s and provided agricultural credits in response to the expulsion of terrorists from Iraq that had killed Americans. Bush haters extrapolate this into an unsubtantiated transfer of actual weapons.
Maybe you-- or your friend-- could provide the details of the proof.
Uh oh.....this moonbat has fangs.
Yeah, what you said. I hate a liberal with a selective memory. Hmm... seems to me that I must hate a lot of liberals then.
My thoughts as well. I have no problem with him bringing this up. Give him a break - for now.
Thank you Mr. Carter. Reagan wasn't President till 1981.
This doesn't know the difference and also the reason we did NOT take out Saddam in '91.
Oh yes, of course. Reagan personally sold Saddam the sarin gas, just wrote out a prescription and faxed it to him. Just like Bush all by himself lied about WMD in Iraq. There were no extenuating circumstances, no debate, not even a second thought among these bast**d republicans. They just did it all by themselves, so evil.
These libs are nuts.
To post on FR you have to have a real address and living under a bridge does not qualify.
Garbage man came early today!
The Dr is no more.
Bush sr. was simply following U.N. mandates to get Saadam out of Kuwait. Had he done anything else you commies would have been whining about that too.
That quip was made in post #2 by one FReeper and you replied to post #5 from another FReeper. As for your question, no our government didn't actually supply this WMD to Iraq.
See ya, wouldn't wanna beya!
I suspect the honorable Dr. hamberly specializes in analheadinsertion which sadly has no cure and which he also suffers from.........
Screw the UN, Democrats AND the arab coalition. If they didn't like us taking out Saddam in 1991, a large portion of their military forces were quite handy for us to apply some destruction.
Not taking out Saddam in 1991 was a major mistake, along with not supporting the rebellions against him. I hold no ill will toward GHWB, but we would all do well to remember that the road to hell is paved with expediency.
We didn't have the proper chem suits for our troops in 91'.
Remember Col. Hackworth complaining about them in the run up to OIF?
"Screw the UN, Democrats AND the arab coalition."
Agreed, but that wasn't an option back then.
dude....you got pwn3d!!!
FRESH "pinko" Meat for the Kitties!!!
Sarin wasn't in the U.S. arsenal - we went to V agents from WWII. This is an old story that gets wilder every time it's retold - 30,000 lbs of sarin is, after all, one heckuva lot of nerve gas.
LMAO. Get your attribs right. The quip was mine, and was directed at the author of the drivel, not the poster [unless you are one and the same]. You do appear to share the same ...er intellect
I'll go there draggin your little pussy-I-gotta-hide behind words carcus behind me
Oh the irony. You must be a DUmmy - threatening violence in the same sentence which you denounce it. How do you keep your head from exploding?
BTW, I'm former Marine - if you want to offer me violence, be prepared to play for keeps. Now go back to your ivory tower little man. take you lies and moonbat propaganda with you.
The Mods have zotted this troll as an early West Coast Appetizer.
Some people are so ignorant.
We sure are seeing alot more of this nonsense lately. I'll bet MoveOn is funding a DUmmie prop brigade. Waste of their money, but thats fine with me.
this guy probably tastes like Eggplant Parmesian to the Kitties :)
Your mom, maybe?
