Our sanctions went on for a long time. It's well documented and well known. Are you contesting that the US had sanctions against Iraq, and also
supported UN sanctions against Iraq? The US has sanctions against everyone they don't like. What part of that is hard for you to believe? That
link I provided just happens to sum it all up in one page. There are plenty of more official articles and docs about our sanctions against Iraq, but I
don't guess you'll look for them. I give up. As I've already pointed out, you won't even believe well known information, unless it comes from Bush
himself, and even then you won't believe it's from Bush himself. Ignorance is not a virtue, FYI.
BTW, Saddam never "kicked out" any inspectors. That's another part of your delusional history. They were withdrawn because they weren't allowed to
do their job. There's a difference. Seek education.
And here's the description of the book you mentioned. Are you sure you read it?
There's one major problem with this. Saddam was pushed to the wall, and he didn't use any bomb. The book is considered "A Combination of
Fact and Fiction". Why would you even bring it up?

A miserable and painful death? WOW!!! I'm afraid THAT statement is FAR WORSE than simple name calling, fella!!!! You just don't learn. But since you
are quitting for what, the third time now, I'll just finish you off again with actual facts instead of your propaganda. ( I notice you edited this
nasty little comment out before I could quote it....nice. At least you have the capacity to learn!)
The sanctions you speak of were UNITED NATIONS
sanctions, not simply US sanctions, something you ignore because it doesn't serve your purpose
which is to spread lies and propaganda. Again, the UNITED NATIONS
allowed the "Oil for Food" program to be implemented,
, then allowed it to be bastardized by corrupt UN officials, to include Secretary-General Kofi Annan's son, who reaped
unlawful benefits by helping Saddam steal perhaps every penny that was supposed to be earmarked for his countrymen.
You see, the above are CREDIBLE SOURCES, nationally and internationally recognized news organizations that have at least some journalistic integrity.
They aren’t out to spread misinformation like the ridiculous sources you quote. They are easier to find than the drivel you have been posting. Try it
So, since by your repeated incorrect statements you seem to be incapable of understanding the concept, the US did NOT unilaterally invoke sanctions on
Iraq, and the pain and suffering caused by the UNITED NATIONS
sanctions were caused by Saddam's palace building spree that raped his
country's banks and starved it's children. Saddam did it, not us. Get it right, because you are looking very foolish by continuing to post links
that have no credibility what so ever. Where do you get your daily news, the National Enquirer?
Never kicked the inspectors out? WHAT??? Are you smoking something? Here, I'll even use on of the sources YOU have use din the past, the BBC...
Just one of how many times the inspectors were in and out??? Cheeze, quit making it so easy, will you???
The have read the book in question, and it is only bashed by those who wish to put a damper on the information in it. The people who lived it know it
to be true, but again, that doesn't suit your purpose, now does it?
If you wish to continue to claim that Saddam was such a great leader and should still be in power today, you may continue on your dilusional
journey...but at least try to come up with some decent main stream sources for your claims....
Of course, that will dry up your comments, now won't it???
