wonder how many mass graves there are now because of bush. for nothing. how many other terrible dictators did bush go after ? none. but the others like in N, Korea and with their mass graves don't have oil.

And how many of those mass graves were filled by the chemicals the first Bush Administration helped to supply to Iraq? Aroces never wants to admit this, he would rather talk about slick Willie or point a finger elsewhere.

McCain said that the surge started the Sunni uprising, not the other way around.

The timeline shows that the Sunnis were ticked and fighting before the surge started along with US help in terms of training and such.

The shieks switched sides because we were starting to make headway against the insurgency before the surge. These people only respect power, power that they can see.

It happens. :ph34r:

We wouldn't have even needed them really if we had just used the already Iraqi military that was only damaged instead of completely dismantling it to rebuild it that created a massive group of trained and very ticked men who needed to feed their families and themselves that were already representing their own areas. One of the biggest blunders of the war.

I agree with this. But the democrats don't. When we started using the people who knew what was going on to run things there they throw a fit because they came from the wrong group/party.

I would think that this stuff came from the Carter admin. They needed someplace to land those choppers on their failed attempt to release the hostages.

Think again . . . .

May, 1986. The US Department of Commerce licenses 70 biological exports to Iraq between May of 1985 and 1989, including at least 21 batches of lethal strains of anthrax. (Reagan Administration)

April, 1988. US Department of Commerce approves shipment of chemicals used in manufacture of mustard gas. (Reagan Administration)

September, 1988. US Department of Commerce approves shipment of weapons grade anthrax and botulinum to Iraq. (Reagan Administration)

December, 1988. Dow chemical sells $1.5 million in pesticides to Iraq despite knowledge that these would be used in chemical weapons (Reagan Administration)

June, 1992. Ted Kopple of ABC Nightline reports: "It is becoming increasingly clear that George Bush Sr., operating largely behind the scenes throughout the 1980's, initiated and supported much of the financing, intelligence, and military help that built Saddam's Iraq into [an aggressive power]."

July, 1992. "The Bush administration deliberately, not inadvertently, helped to arm Iraq by allowing U.S. technology to be shipped to Iraqi military and to Iraqi defense factories... Throughout the course of the Bush administration, U.S. and foreign firms were granted export licenses to ship U.S. technology directly to Iraqi weapons facilities despite ample evidence showing that these factories were producing weapons." Representative Henry Gonzalez, Texas, testimony before the House.

Now care to tell us where those biological samples were sent?

Mainly Baghdad University (or whatever its called) and other civilian research facilities

Likewise with those chemical shipments, a chief componant of mustard gas is Chlorine, Chlorine has a billion uses outside of manufacturing chemicals weapons, similarly, Iraq agriculture would have been just as reliant on pesticides like every other nations agriculture, the problem is, in a situation where you can't monitor the use of those exports, do you ban all sales and hope they are still able to produce enough food to feed themselves?

I mean, look out the way the Iraqis tried to build the supergun, i find it difficult to believe they were ever open to anyone about what they were doing.

The truth doesn't matter all that matters is that we sent them the chemicals needed to build those weapons. Never mind that Saddam could walk across the border pick up some chlorine for his swimming pools.
