What?????? I can't believe you said that....but I guess you did...
Contrast and compare between Saddam w/out curfews and curfews w/out Saddam if you would and tell me how this is worse (knowing that it is temporary).
Maybe not to US standards for sure...but Iraq was one of the most "westernized" nations before the sanctions. The electricity system there has been trashed.
"before the sanctions"
You're moving the goalposts, SJO, we are talking about lies to go to war
, not to impose sanctions. The sanctions lies were not GeeDub's. Those were his daddy's and Clinton's.
I have read more articles about this kind of stuff than many people have had hot dinners. I shall dig them up tonight igf I have a spare 15 minutes. I'm amazed you haven't read anything about it...but there agin, Fox and Co don't run articles counter to administration policy.
If you can show one instance of me ever citing FoxNews for anything I'd love to see it. The fact that you rely on such an easy attack shows how amazingly weak your position is.
Lies from the administration or no, Iraq is in a much better position for progress than it was before the war.
Bad stuff, but sanctions killed 274 a day.
Again, your sources never cease to amaze me. I find it endlessly amusing that you attack my credibility with ludicrous accusations of relying on FoxNews when your sources are mostly paranoia sites. (For God's sake one is called LIBERALSLANT.COM!)
For every one of your amazingly biased opinion pieces I can find 5 stories of Saddam's horrible deeds, it's really a pointless action you undertake to hide the fact that this operation has been a tremendous success.
There's chaos in a city whose government has just been removed, HOW SHOCKING!
IraqBodyCount.net tells us ~2500 civilians have been killed to this point. That's less than 10 days
of sanctions that George W. Bush removed.
"BUT! BUT! What about the opinion piece from LIBERALSLANT.COM!?!?!"
I'm sure the country's GDP decrease from $60b to $5.7b (99) due toi sanctions had something to do with that.
DO YOU THINK, SHERLOCK!?
Wow, what a stunning financial analysis, Mr. Greenspan, I hope you haven't taken too much time from your busy schedule to point out something so difficult to decipher.
Guess what's gone now... I'll give you 10 seconds.
Cookie for you, Alan, you win the big prize!
No Saddam and No Sanctions = A Good Thing
Is the light bulb firing up yet?
