The Rummy and Saddam milkshake
GNN.tv has got to be one of the best websites to keep bookmarked on your browser (hopefully you now use Firefox). Today they give us a lil' refresher on the history of the US and Iraq's war-torn relationship: specifically Donald Rumsfeld's infamous hand shake with Saddam Hussein. Check out this quote:
Rumsfeld met with Hussein in Baghdad on behalf of the Reagan administration, opening up strong diplomatic and military ties that lasted through six more years of SaddamÂs murderous brutality.
As it happens, the initial trial of Saddam and co-defendants is focusing on grisly crimes that occurred the year before Rumsfeld gripped his hand.
How convenient! We're not taking Saddam to trial for the gassing of the Kurds or anything else he did AFTER the deal was made with Rummy and the Reagan White House. No, no, no, can't have a trial that might involve the Neo-Con Republican rat-bastards of the Bush Crime Family. Read the full story and tell a friend or two, God know the news won't do it.
9/11 and the Iraq War are the direct result of decades of Neo-Con involvement in the middle east. Go watch Syriana and you'll catch a glimpse into this web of US government and corporate influences in the Oil-rich gulf. (Again why we need to declare our independence from foreign oil!)
