before all the "hero" talk comes running on the press - just remember this is the guy who armed and trained the Taliban and called them "freedom fighters" - he used tax payer dollars to arm and trian guys like OBL while in charge of the CIA. You could call that the birth of terrorism.
"President Bush has been in and out of The Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center being treated for complications related to his bronchitis," Bush's office said in a statement released by the hospital. "He is in stable condition, and is expected to be released within the next 72 hours."
At least he is not a #$%$ who doens;t know who his father was!
No, Idiot. It was the US supporting a country being attacked by the Russians. Remember it was Russia who armed Iran in their 8 year war with Iraq who we aided. There are two sides to every war. Impossible to predict what might happen. We fought Germany with the Russians and entered a 50 year cold war. Now where do we stand with those countries. You again broadcast your utter lack of facts and dispense nonsense. Maybe it's time you take off the 3 pointed hat with bells.
Geo Bush was a fair minded and courageous leader. And he let Gen. Swartzkopf make the decisions in the Gulf War and didn't create the wrangling like Obama has had with the military brass.
The Russians were fighting the Taliban and extremism just as we are today - and due to all the paranoia over the Russians taking over the world - we armed and trained the Taliban. And when the Russains pulled out - we did an about face with the people we called "freedom fighters" and called them "freedom haters". You can't have it both ways - which is it? who did we sign up with:?
Bush also armed both Iran and Iraq at the same time because it was good business.
And you wonder why there is so much hatred in that part of the world for the US??
If you can't admit we F'd up then we're never going to avoid repeating the past.
