Are you saying that US, and specifically Donald Rumsfeld, were not
supporting Saddam Hussein in the 1980's?

Are you under the impression that your URL is anything but extremist
propaganda? It's kind of like quoting a KKK website about opinions of
blacks. Or quoting a PLO website for opinions about Israel.


Never mind the URL.

The discussion is about Rumsfeld/Shultz conduct during 1983-1984.

Do you deny the truth of the statements made?

The statement made was that the US supported Saddam while Saddam was
gassing Kurds. Yes, I deny that.

I am not all that familiar with the British press. Is The Independent
really anything like "extremist propaganda?" I would think not?


Not at all. It's a well respected broadsheet with no overt political
bias. Its main fault IMHO is that its middle eastern coverage tends to
be over reliant on Robert Fisk, who seems to be only interested in
telling one side of the story.

No one has to take the word of Pete Loud in this issue.

If you wish to get a more factual account of the US involvement in Iraq in
the 1980's you can get quite a bit of information using Google. I have just
done a search on [Rumsfeld Iraq 1984] and come up some interesting info. Of
course there will be much more information which the US Gov. does not
release.

You might find that US wasn't involved, you might find it was. Either way
it's much better to attempt to find the real situation than simply screaming
"whinging Pom"

Cheers,

When Saddam was killing and gassing Iraqis, guess who it was who was
supporting him.

Another whinging Pom...............

So? Does that make him wrong?


No. He's wrong, but that's not why.

I guess "you can't handle the truth!"

Many comments were made in the article about Rumsfeld's conduct and
Schultz's conduct during 1883-1984.

Please tell us WHY you believe the statements to be false.

Sure I can. Fantasies like this are a little more difficult.

The article was nothing but propaganda from an extermist left wing
group.

Because when Saddam gassed the Kurds the US government immediately
condemned him and his actions publicly, including in the UN.

Nonsense. The web site may have been. But the article was a reprint for
The Independent, which a british poster confirmed to be pretty much
mainstream. I thought I had already posted that.

Mind you, extremist left folks have been known to be right more often that
not. Just take that WMD crap for example.

I suppose you don't believe that there is a picture of Rummy shaking
