One thing I don't think I'll ever understand is how "you people" (tm) can fool yourselves into thinking the Gulf War was about the liberation of Kuwait. I suppose followers of the same school of thought also subscribe to the belief that we went over there with the intention to eliminate Saddam.
The fact is that Bush sr., being an oil industry bigwig himself, feared Saddam gaining control of yet another large reserve of oil. Knowing how addicted we Americans are to consumption (And how ignorant we are to the damage we cause) even a mental midget like Saddam knew how tightly he could squeeze our throats if he controlled that oil.
I have a few friends in the service, and one mentioned to me that we had people close enough to Saddam (as in, within his compound) to find out that he had a serious Body Odor problem. We had the means to kill him, though we did not.
There was a time when America was a defender of justice. There was a time when we fought to save lives. Unfortunately, we have now, for the first time ever, become the aggressor.
Thank god most Americans do not share your clouded vision, Mr. Craw.
