Invasion.... this what it was all about from the start.
Good God, we are SO effed.......
I’d like a link to the quote of Bush saying that.
I did find this which is not at all what you mentioned-
Days after the U.S. invasion, then-Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz told a congressional panel that Iraqi oil revenues would help pay for reconstructing the country, i.e. a cost of the war. The oil revenue of that country could bring between 50 and 100 billion dollars over the course of the next two or three years. Were dealing with a country that could really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon, he said.
One month before the war, then-White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said Iraq is a rather wealthy country. And so there are a variety of means that Iraq has to be able to shoulder much of the burden for their own reconstruction.
Financing their own reconstruction is COMPLETELY different than saying a third party country is offering to finance and invasion.
Nice try with the Bush hate
AS USUAL ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS WHOLE MESS IS EXPLAINED BY BEAUTIFUL BRAINY ANNIE COULTER...NUFF SAID. JUST WATCH:
He lifts the veil just a little. Apparently our military power is for sale.
How insulting! They vote down in the Arab league any action of their own, but they will let Americans spill their blood.
Our blood has been for sale and it is damned high time it stopped.
We are not the middle east cops and we will not send our sons so the elite can rake in payola.
They will not pay. Obama is in on it. They will say take it out of the aid you are giving us.
The US looks so stupid right now. Fubo
This is treason
And Putin just called Kerry a liar. Gotta agree with Putin anyway which is pretty sad by itself. So why would anyone believe Kerry this time?
Reminds me of the Gropos episode from Babylon 5.
It fits the muzzie loyalties of the CIC, who is willing to hire out our sovereign military for a bunch of Arab monkeys too chicken to use their own “fierce” fighters. This is past disgusting that our sec of state thinks this is something good. Whose State is he secretary of, exactly?
I’m given cause to wonder how much they’ve ALREADY paid J fn K.
More than we can possibly imagine.
The rest of the adminsitraion and most of the Congress too.
The House of Saud wants us to, and we will.
Look at our foreign policy for the last 30 years. We march to the Saudi drums.
Invasion indeed! How did we get from a missile strike to INVASION? For what? Why? For whom? Now The US Military is for hire.
Our Military needs to have their own red line before we have our own 2nd Civil War.
The vile globalists have now come up with the most twisted crime imaginable on the American people.
Hire the US military out to be mercenaries for the Arab countries by providing military support for the group responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Al Queda. We have not forgotten Al Queda is also the group that provided the excuse for our government to steal our rights from us through the Patriot Act, NSA privacy invasions, the TSA and Homeland Security.
When you think the vile globalists couldn’t do anything worse, they do.
It has been since the UN run Korean war, sad to say.
So this horrible man wants to turn our proud military (beloved husbands and sons of patriotic Americans) into a bunch of paid MERCENARIES for ARAB MUSLIM COUNTRIES???? For our ENEMIES?????
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????
I can’t believe he came out and said it. It’s basically what many on here have been saying. Most in our government are bought and paid for by Saudi Arabia it seems. Now they are just coming out in the open about it.
OpusatFR: Our blood isnt for sale.
Post of the Day.
SURE!! Pay BLOOD money for dead and wounded Dhimmi soldiers!!!
I DESPISE Obama and his henchmen McConnell and Boehner!!!
US military for rent to the highest bidder.
...”Our blood isnt for sale”....
Looks like Obbie Wan put that on the table and wagered it..
...”Time for some generals to resign - - and to speak out pubicly against this abomination, loudly and forcefully”...
Many retired are already , and have done so, but this high stakes game Obie is playing is “outside” the circle of Washington or the Pentagon...
He’s moving Congress and that is soo troubling....and it’s not taking him long to do so either...equally troubling.
Let those Arab countries deal with Assad then. They have the money, speak the language and share the Faith.
Arab countries can wage war against Israel but not another Mid East country? Wtf.
The Saudis have been sponsoring our wars in the ME for a while now, no?
This is sick. We’re not mercenaries. Obama may have done more for paeloconservatism in America than any President since Calvin Coolidge.
Does Kerry think they are as bad as his fellow vietnam veterans? Did he go as far as to comparing them to Genghis Khan? Or did he stop short of that?
Obama and Kerry say, Okay, we'll keep this hush hush. We appreciate your financial support.
Then Kerry runs out to a camera ans blabs the whole thing.
I don't want us taking this action at all. I don't want Saudi Arabia bank rolling anything here.
I can't believe how sophomoric Kerry is, to go out and blab these details to everyone. It instantly makes Assad the enemy of the Saudis.
Nice move Kerry. What's next in your bag of tricks?
Exactly. I call bluffing.
With flowers and chocolate no less.
Let me explain why the Sunnis will pay to kill Shiites. This country doesn’t have a clue. They think a brainless Arab is a brainless Arab. What you have .since they made up this religion in 634 After Christ birth is Shiites believe that the brother in law of Mohammed was not a”blood” relative. The Sunnis were all set up with the brother in law law. Well the Shiites went to a cousin named “ Ali” as the proper heir in blood line and said “ You DA MAN”. That pissed off the established Sunnis so they started killing the Shiites real bad. The Shiites went down to Kandahar Iraq and slaughtered the damned Sunnis — ALL OF THEM. Since that great fight they regularly kill each other every day.
Now fast forward to the Saudi Sunnis ( our real enemy) wanting to take our oil payments and pay us to kill Shites— and you will have a clue.
It was the Wahhabi sect Sunni that killed our citizens— Not the Shiites. But this stupid government and John Boehner/McCain and Gramnesty don’t have any idea.
I hardly know what he said. Just hearing that guy for an instant causes my mind to immediately shut off my hearing. So help me if that guy had managed to become President, I think it my have actually been worse than the current moron.
So if the Arabs agree to pay for our wars, I guess Congress’ control of the military purse strings becomes irrelevant?
This is exactly why I told my kid not to re-up. I really wish he had heeded my advice...
Soldier for sale or rent...
Anyone remember being promised that Iraq War version 2 would be paid off in Iraqi oil? Where do we stand on that?
Kerry ? if Obamacare does not get repealed by Congress can the Arab countries pay the costs ?
So, we’re Hessians now........?
...no oil for blood?
Kerry was almost giddy when he announced that, too. I imagine he was figuring out how he could syphon off some of that payola that would turn American volunteers into unwitting cannon fodder in a wider Arab conflict.
Well, Kerry, you finally made it. You’ve become the very type of warmonger you said you despise.
NOTE: It’s about the money. With the dems it’s always about the money. Kerry, the man who married money, is now taking bribes from foreign countries and willing to sacrifice American lives to get his payoff.
The man has never met a principle he didn’t run from.
Well, at least we are admitting it outright. Points for that at least.
They want to pay for an invasion? We’ll send them the tanks and THEY can go at it themselves.
A despicable lie of epic proportions. Kerry should have been asked to tell which Arab countries are willing to do this and with whom he has spoken and with what regard to how much and when.
After 9/11 many Saudis were flown out of the US; after the Boston bombing a Saudi suspect was ‘released’; “O” bowing down before a Saudi during a trip after his election said it all - - our country has been subverted from within by forces from without . . . I fear we may have been conquered even before 9/11 as we became Hessian Mercenaries for a variety of muslim sects and their plethora of internal squabbles . . .
The “white slaves” of our Saudi masters.
The USA now has a rent- a- military.
That should help recruiting.
Impeach the whole damned bunch of them along with the traitorous RINOs who voted to support Skeeter in his war game.
Oil and phosphate
Doesn’t Russia have more oil than the Middle East?
Likely. Heck, the US has more proven reserves than Saudi Arabia. But the environmentals wont let us get to our own oil.
