“So let’s see...we gave WMD to Saddam to war against Iran...Saddam gave WMD to Syria...now we’re going into Syria to get back our WMD.”

No, the US did not arm Iraq. The equipment Iraq used was either Russian or French. The US did arm Iran until the Shah was unseated after that the US did not sell weapons to Iran either. The truth is other than a few fighter planes and (I think) M-48 tanks obtained before the Shah was ousted the US did not arm either Iraq or Iran in the their war with each other.

Any WMD they had they made themselves or bought from France, China, North Korea or Russia not the US. The charge that US armed Iraq or Iran while often repeated is a cynical lie put out by the hard left.

Bingo, during the Iraq-Iran war our support was logistical and support. Nothing more. I don’t recall any M1 Abrahms or M-16s or F-15s. It is the lie that keeps lying by the left assholes.

Silly person, facts and logic have no place in the decision which may or may not initiate THE WAR THAT REALLY ENDS ALL WARS!
