the US needs a bogieman to stay...rumsfeld for example was on the board of a corp that sold nasty stuff to NK, just as he was instrumental in selling
poison gas to saddam...(and more I'm sure)
The Saddam help became a good reason to invade; hell the US basically put him in power in the first place.
The US did NOT put Saddam into power in the first place at all. Saddam was a client state and ally of the USSR primarily (obviously not what the USA
liked), and purchased more weapons from France. The USA offered some aid during the Iran/Iraq war because Iran was seen (correctly) as more of a
threat to US interests, but the relationship is much less than with the USSR.
The USA did help put the Shah in power (there is always internal political divisions, but US supported one side of it).
Sure about that? Saddam time line rise to power
Start with 1959 who
was a young Iraqi student named Saddam having meetings with? You guessed it the CIA...he was given all the help he needed on his way up from the
start. Saddam himself even wrote as advice; if you want to rise to power, talk to the US tell them you're on their side...they will fund and arm you
bolster your influence, once you get to the position you want turn your back...and that's exactly what he did.
Old G. Bush that was head of the CIA didn't like his errand boy for the CIA's plan, telling them to get bent at all now did he; after he got where
he wanted? Bush Sr. didn't go in there for revenge when he became president...and he certainly didn't get his son as president to divert the 911
attacks into a Iraq thing at all. They were plotting a reason to get at Iraq, there's proof of that here on ATS with the Rumsfeld memos.
Things run way more dirty and deep than most could imagine...just look at all the declassified papers with plots on other counties in the CIA
database, are we supposed think they just quit that kinda plotting and planning at some point?
One day the exact plot I am talking about above will be declassified if not already shredded or sealed in the Bush presidential vault under executive
order of his son.
