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.
Gotta be an easier way.
At least we made sure that Sadaam destroyed most of his stuff before we went in
At least we’re getting paid to do it this time. We used to do it for free, now we prostitute our military to the highest bidder in cases where no national interest exists.
“So lets see...we gave WMD to Saddam to war against Iran...Saddam gave WMD to Syria...now were 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.
??? Proof of *that* assertion? The *only* thing that was given to Saddam Hussein's Iraq by the US Government, to assist him in his fight with Iran, was some satellite imagery.
*We* never gave him any chemical, or biological weaponry, and anyone who asserts that we did is talking out their blowhole. We don't even have, to my best knowledge, a chemical, or biological offensive weapons program, as we don't need one, having nuclear capabilities...
If what you say is true, the WMD has a longer shelf life than a Seinfeld episode.
