Forum Post: A Question about Nukes

We remember the lies about Iraq.. After the invasion, none found though..

and nowadays media is always focusing on Syria and Iran.. "the opressor" Asad? and the "Nuke Maker" Ahmedinejad?

Iran says, its Nuclear Program is peaceful. And IAEA inspections approve it.. So, why focus on something myth? Rather than the Nukes we have? Not to mention our "ally" Israel (it is not a member of the IAEA)..

Many questions need answers.. Ok. First one: How many Nukes do we have?

Righties love dictators, too. Hussein (yes, Hussein as courted as an ally by Reagan/Cheney in the late 80's to counter Iran), The Shah, Pinochet not the metion the Saudi Royal family. No ideology, left or right, is spared from the stigma of accepting human rights abuses all in the name of politics.

Under Bush, hussein was taken down, and in the end, executed.

Except none of the reasons we were given for the invasion were true.

He did not have WMD's

He was not harboring terrorists.

He was not involved in any attack on any US interest.

Any internal conflict is none of our goddamned business.

The one reason we went there which no one wants to talk about is the oil and the fact that Saddam wanted to trade Iraqi oil in currencies other than the petro-dollar.

In the aftermath, Iraqis are living with more violence than ever in their history, they have access to few of the basic services that they had under Saddam. They are at the mercy of private military contractors who are not subject to justice by Iraqi law.

If you believe that the US has left Iraq... think again...

Yeah.. we did a bang up job of 'helping' the Iraqis didnt we?

hussein routinely tortured his own people. he mudrered hundreds of thousands of them. the USA liberated 50 mil iraqis form a deranged killer, husseins were just as bad as dear old dad. murderers..

Its a wonder you can stand the smell of the shit you're shoveling.

That was not the reason that the public was given for the war In Iraq. Not to mention that there was no ongoing military by Saddam against his people.

The fact remains that the Iraqis are worse off now then they ever were under Saddam.

Who cares how any nukes we have, we have only ever actually used two against an enemy country.

UN screwed up the whole WMD search in Iraq. Syria and Iran matter because they are countries who heavily fund terrorist cells. Iran hates use and the IAEA inspections were not thorough enough to make that assessment. Iran won't use a use on somebody (either US or Israel) they will just sell it to the cell who pays the most.

I'm not a rightie or leftie.. Yes, Saddam was a dictator. Thanks God he was executed. What I'm trying to say is why the lies about nukes to invade a country? and as for Asad and Syria I believe we are misinformed by one-sided media. On watching Syrian news channels I relaised that the criminals, murderers there are the terrorists supported by Saudis and Turkey.

I dunno why.. But, I'm wondering why we are forced to focus just on Syria, rather than Noth Africa and Bahrain? why the double-standards? why do we focus on nuclear activities of Iran? and not the nukes the number of which we don't know? I think the %1 is trying to get us into another meaningless war..


Don't call me Ron Paul supporter, republician or Duke supporter, racist.. I'm not.. But, I agree what they say about our politics around the world.. It is wrong..

the %1 is getting richer by the wars.. Because US and Europe governments form the %76 of arm sellers in the world.. and we pay the price.. by killing and getting killed..

Why would you put the word oppressor in quotes? Do you doubt what a despicable monster mass murderer Assad is?

Lefties just LOVE mass murdering dictators, don't they?Stalin, Castro, Chavez, ortega, Saddam...these beasts could always rely on useful idiots in the west to carry their water.

[-] 1 points by toukarin (488) 5 years ago

Oh wait a minute here... lets see... who lists more dictators and mass murderers on their list of allies than any other country in history?

Thats right... good old US of A... does not matter if it was the Dems or the Reps doing it...

As for Assad being an oppressor, dude... its NONE OF OUR FUCKING BUSINESS.

Not to mention the fact that many of the massacre reports have been proven to be false flags by the so called 'peaceful opposition activists.'

WTF is Assad supposed to do when neighboring countries are inciting rebellion and arming the rebels? What would the US do if there was a "friends of America" group arming rebels who are fighting on US soil?

[-] 2 points by slizzo (-96) 5 years ago

I never said we didn't have dictator allies, I asked why you put the word oppressor in quotes.

Was that too complicated for you?

Oh, and look, you're making excuses for him. I suppose his neighbors are at fault for him sending assassination squads into villages and slaughtering women and children, too.

You are a demented scumbag.

[-] 1 points by toukarin (488) 5 years ago

Again, for a moment step out of your comfort zone and imagine that your country is being torn up by 'rebels' who are receiving arms from neighboring countries.

Does that not merit military action? Assad is well within his rights to call upon his military to attack armed rebel forces.

Oh... and if they hide in civilian areas... that's just too bad for the civilians... isn't that what the IDF keeps telling the Palestinians?

As for the assassination squads accusation against Assad, there is no conclusive proof. Every major news agency has backed down from the claim that Assad bore any responsibility for Holoua. Heck, the BBC was using a picture from Iraq and trying to pass it off as coming from Syria.

wow, yet ANOTHER conspiracy against an innocent mass murdering dictator.

poor, poor assad...no one understands him!


send him some flowers, asswipe.
