We should give them $4 billion to send some troops to Iraq. That figure is a little more than a months expenses for the President's Iraqi board game.
Go get the money from Carlos Menem.
Amen to that. The rich steal and the poor pay.
Or, maybe we should send them some of the countless billions of dollars that Saddam raped and pilfered from the Iraqi people over the last 25 years. But, I guess you would never see things that way since you are blinded by your hatred of Bush.
It's now being reported that there's apparently an agreement with the IMF, and that Argentina will be making its debt payment. No big surprise there - as far as I can tell, most people expected the issue to be resolved well before penalties were due to be imposed next month.
You're so misguided I can't believe I'm responding. I guess I should just count myself lucky I can still see what's in the kool-aid before drinking it.
Our country has debt exceeding 1/2 a trillion dollar. What's another $4 billion to help our friends to the south out? A drop in the bucket.
That's the money we're supposed to be using to rebuild Iraq. Except there isn't enough of it.
Please try to keep up.
Atleast give him 72 hours.
Well, if your guys' hero Saddam had used that money to rebuild Iraq in the first place and not terrorizing the world then maybe we'd have the $4 billion to help out Argentina. See how not ousting dictators has a trickle down effect on the world?
Maybe when we find Saddam he'll forward to Argentina all that aid Reagan gave him in the 1980s.
Or Carter and Zbigniew Brzezinski in the 70s, who started the whole mess.
Helicopters and Argentines don't mix.
This reminded me of a really old derragatory joke a dead uncle once told me on why the Italians never win a war. But I digress.
Please try to keep up. HE DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY. Apparently he'd given it all to Donald Rumsfeld in the 80's to buy weapons. Which we can't find. Anywhere. At all. Even though we said we knew where they were. By "we" I of course mean "George Bush" and "Donald Rumsfeld"
Interesting. When I do a google search on Carter & Hussein, I get pictures of both of them, but not together. When I do a search fo Brzezinki & Hussein, I get nothing at all. When I do a search of Rumsfeld & Hussein I get
At least one left winger appreciates the American President
Argentine president Nestor Kirchner grateful to US president George W. Bush
'US President George Bush congratulated this morning chief of state Nestor Kirchner for the accord reached with the IMF, while the Argentine mandatary expressed his 'recognition and gratefulness' for the support that he gave throughout the negotiations.'
Saddam Husein isn't my hero.
In what way was he "terrorizing the world"?
How does his ousting financially 'trickledown', other than to Halliburton, I mean?
This post makes no sense.
Oh, I don't know, ask the Kurds, the Iraqis, and the Iranians. Also, ask the Americans and any others who lost people on 9/11 since terrorist mastermind Mohammed Atta met with Iraqi agents in Prague beforehand.
P.S. Halliburton has no contracts in Iraq.
IRAQ HISTORY, 1980.
I assume you know their subsidiaries, such as Kellog Brown and Root, do.
> Oh, I don't know, ask the Kurds, the Iraqis,
Both of whom were oppressed by Saddam decades ago, without any opposition by the US administrations - including some of the very same people running things now.
> and the Iranians.
Whom Saddam fought at our urging, and against the advice of such humanitarians as the dictator of Syria.
If these things make Saddam a moral hazard and worthy of being destroyed, what do you think it says about the United States? If you go anywhere on Earth and ask who the greatest threat to the world is, they all come up with the same answer. Why do you think that is?
Wasn't this disproven?
1. It says sometimes we need to go in and clean out some messes from our policies that went awry.
KBR won a COMPETITIVE bidding process in 2001 to provide the military with services. KBR, by the way, was started by George Brown, a once powerful figure in Democrat circles.
And, why shouldn't Haliburton be involved over in Iraq. They are the world's largest company at what they do in oil maintenance services. Their chief competition is a French company, I believe. A French company should receive the contracts over an American one?
