We Owe The Iraqi People

The problem with being an honest conservative is that sometimes you see things you don't necessarily like, but your honesty makes you realize they are right. I stumbled onto the site while researching Ollie North. It is linked in the title and the points are both factual and intelligently applied. It's very true that we owe them for what we helped their leaders do over the past 30 years.

December 20, 1983. Donald Rumsfeld , then a civilian and now Defense Secretary, meets with Saddam Hussein to assure him of US friendship and materials support.

I can't help but think that some of that guilt came to play in the decision making process that led us to where we are today. I also find it ironic that Rumsfeld was "in charge" of the military to take down someone he had personally pledged an alliance with. Interesting history to say the least.
