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.

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!!!
