"tin-horn dictator with truly Hitlerian ambitions of world domination"
Contradictio in adjecto. Depends too heavily on suspension of reasonable disbelief. Godwin's law violation...you lose.
"His invasion of Kuwait was a preliminary move clearly preparatory to an invasion of Saudi Arabia"
BS. His invasion of Kuait was his invasion of Kuait. He made his intentions clear to his old paymaster through April Glaspie. Kuait was drilling horizontally into the Basra deposits and he considered that an "act of war". See, two can play that game.
Drivel about history you clearly have no knowledge or understanding of is simply more begging for trollfood. Have a donut, hack.
"Is that really US , the people who make war for economic benefit??"
Well I see Wottow schooled you a bit. If you were a student of American history, in this context, you would not need to ask.
Would we have defended an ally and stopped an aggressor at any time, answer yes. The critics put in monetary terms so I did as well. It was in our national interest, aside from money, to defend an ally and defend a region for our own security interest.
Your whiney questions are seldom thought out, and if you were a bit better educated you could answer them yourself.
Not to defend Hawcreek (since I don't know what he had in mind) but Saddam Hussein (sp?) was a tin-horn dictator with truly Hitlerian ambitions of world domination. His invasion of Kuwait was a preliminary move clearly preparatory to an invasion of Saudi Arabia, which would have left him in control of a very large share, perhaps even a majority, of world reserves of recoverable oil.
If there is anything we should have learned from World War II, it is that if we value our independence as a sovereign nation, we must not wait until a Hitler is at our doorstep to deal with him. Having learned that lesson, we knew what we had to do in the face of the Soviet Union, which since 1918 or so had been conceived with the ultimate objective in mind of world domination -- which incidentally is which its official name makes no reference to geography, only to its form of governence. Hitler lost WWII because he made a critcal strategic error in deciding to move against Moscow rather than oil fields farther south. The result of that error was that D-day came, his forces were largely immobilized for lack of fuel. If he had not erred, we would likely now be speaking either German or Japanese.

Sentiment: Strong Sell
Hawcreek opines about the result of the Iraq war and consequences had we not intervened.
"hey may have saved this country trillions versus the scene had Saddam taken Saudi oil "
Is that really US , the people who make war for economic benefit??
If so I am ashamed of my country. What happened to our courage and supposed 'independence'
That's good....coming from the pathetic cretin who's been throwing a continuous tantrum since Obama first got elected and then re-elected. Get dead, moron.

"That's an allegation, not particularly well substantiated..."
Sez the communist left who hate te truth, an acto of war, yes.
"The plot collapsed after the Kuwaiti government arrested 16 people, including an Iraqi intelligence colonel who had with him 550lb of explosives brought in from Iraq."
""Saddam was openly funding Palestian suicide bombers"
Look up "openly", idiot, it was no secret, it was published that he paid the families of suicide bombers.
Lightiing up our planes, another act of war, targeting them, another act of war/
Your lying to defend your earlier lie changes nothing.
"Saddam sent a hit team to kill an ex president, an act of war"
That's an allegation, not particularly well substantiated, but it is an allegation.
"an act of war"
Blah blah blah about the no fly zones. So what.
"another act of war"
"Saddam was openly funding Palestian suicide bombers"
"Saddam was violating terms of cease foire"
"open acts of war"
No justicfication whatsoever, just the usual wingnut arglebargle.
