country that never did us any harm
Two things wrong with that clause. 1. It'd be pretty
hard to prove that Iraq never did us any harm. 2. If
I see a punk beating up an old lady, should I leave him
alone because he "never did me any harm"?
This Iraq business started when Saddam invaded Kuwait.
First he harmed relatively defenseless Kuwait. The US
came to Kuwait's defense and Iraq has been doing us harm
Doing us harm since Kuwait? How so?
I do know that our sanctions/embargo on Iraq killed half a million
Iraqi children during the time you claim "they were doing us harm.".
Did they cause the USA any harm such as that? Civilian deaths?
Children's deaths? Lack of medicine and basic health supplies?
Are you a neoconservative by any chance? Get your news from the
Weekly Standard do you?
From WIkipedia article on Iraq-
In 1990, Iraq invaded Kuwait, resulting in the Gulf War and
economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations at the behest of the
U.S. The economic sanctions were intended to compel Saddam to dispose
weapons of mass destruction. Critics estimate that more than
500,000 Iraqi children died as a result of the sanctions.
"Critics estimating" is not a cite of information as fact. Especially
when those critics fail to acknowledge the incredible sums of money
that Saddam banked and ratholed, in cash, during that period (AND
SPENT BUILDING PALACES)....instead of feeding and caring for those
children. Iraq had ample income during that period...Saddam made his
own choices re: what to do with that money.
