Jesse Jackson on Saddam Hussein Headlines aljazeera.net
30 Dec 2006 | St. Reagan

Posted on 12/30/2006 4:23:53 AM PST by Saint Reagan

Anyone who thinks our enemies aren't aware of what goes on at home has his head completely in the sand. This is further evidenced by Al-Jazeera's front page story today.

جيسي جاكسون: صدام كان مجرما لكنه كان حليفنا أيضا

The literal translation is:
Jesse Jackson: Saddam Hussein was an evil man, but he was also our ally

Think about that for a minute. Arab news doesn't even feel the need to explain who the hell Jesse Jackson is. They're that aware of our internal politics. Furthermore, this makes their front page story!! It would be nice if one day, we as a country would stop handing our enemies ammunition. They are completely in-tune with what's going on over here.

"Jesse Jackson: Saddam Hussein was an evil man, but he was also our ally"

Sure he was Jackson you jack@ss. Thats why we took him down and him face his people for his crimes against them. These leftist @sses are preaching that we should "talk" to our enemies, but when we do that, they yurn around call them our "allies" in a lame attempts to score political points when we try establish diplomatic relations and send someone to shake his hand.

That's exactly what Jack@ss is referring to, the pic of Rumsfeld shaking his hand when we were trying to establish diplomatic ties back in '83 or so.

It also possibly was a good strategy at one point. Does Jesse realize Iran was viewed as a bigger threat at the time?

We always knew jj was an enemy of the United States. Here he is admitting saddam was evil and considering him our ally. Speak for yourself.

Too bad Jesse Jackson wasn't on staff in the Iraqi government when Saddam seized power. You can bet he would have been one of the first ones Saddam shot for treason.

It just amazes me how democrats continuously get away with their treasonous acts against this country. You'd think the people would at least stop reelecting them. Truly amazing.

"Well for a while in the 1980's he was."

Not truly, he was the enemy of our enemy. The common enemy being radical islam in Iran.

If I'm not mistaken, Ronaldus Magnus cut off all aid and assistance after one of Saddam's MiGs put an Exocet into the USS Stark in 86-87(?).

Reminds me of the Cosby show episode where he tells his son, "I brought you into this world, and I can take you out". A lesson to be learned here.

Thank you for the correction. It has been 20 years, and the brain gets a little fuzzy on the details... ;^)

I'm pretty sure you're right. He was also an unwilling ally after that, too. I always wondered why we quit the Kuwait war within spitting distance of Baghdad. Then I heard that Bush (#1) thought it was more prudent to keep him in power and let him keep Iran in line than it was for us to do it. Probably seemed like a good idea at the time.

I think he had both. Wasn't there news coverage of MiGs being buried in the sand early in the search for WMD's?

The penalty for treason should be death by hanging.

I think you're right. However, the subject was the type of plane that fired the Exocets at the USS Stark. French missles, French planes.

The literal translation is:

Jesse Jackson: Saddam Hussein was an evil man, a criminal, but he was also our ally

It's "corrected" to reflect the Arabic content. I don't believe that Jesse would use the word "criminal." LOL

That's a good point. People like Jackson don't understand that in order to stop a greater evil, one must sometimes work with some very nasty people in the world. That doesn't mean we approve of them or like them; we just have to deal with them. Stalin against the Nazis, Hussein against Iran and Pinochet against the Communists are a few that come to mind.

Germany, Japan, Great Britan, and Italy were our enemies at one time, Jesse, quit using selective history.

I understand, but I think Jesse Jackson is BOTH an evil man and a criminal!!! What kind of a "nut" makes such a ludicrous statement???? I mean, it's bizarre!!!

Yes, in fact the literal translation of Jesse Jackson statement says: "Saddam was a criminal but he was our ally".
