Hey lefty?

Did you give a damn when Saddam Hussein was slaughtering Kurds?

Did you?

Or are you being hypocrites?

It is not a "whataboutism".

You did not give a shit then and you are being exposed as a hypocrite now.

7. Add in the fact that Saddam used the chemical weapons that the Left claimed didn't exist

On the Kurds and there's an extra layer to the hypocrisy.

15. Exactly. Just because someone didnt care about the Kurds

When it wasn’t politically convenient doesn’t mean they don’t now care deeply about this humanitarian crisis now that it is.

Personally, I believe the US should be willing to pay any price to safeguard the lives of others when it also fits with my political beliefs.

He was an equal opportunity kind of dictator. If it served his interest he was willing to decimate it.

It's just odd how lefty is so concerned now.

Or not really concerned at all and just pretending.

14. See junior...

The difference between and R and a D is that a person who affiliates himself with the republican party is not afraid to point out the fact that most of the elected republicans are RHINO's. They are not afraid to step out of line.

Unlike a democrat who will support his party line no matter what.

It amazes me the the dems have not got a god damned clue yet how Trump got elected. Some of the country is sick and tired of the good old establishment. You really believe Trump is a card carrying republican?

Yeah. Yeah. Whatever.

Please do carry on...

See Romney Ryan
See McCain Palin
See GWB
See John Boeher
etc
etc
etc


And Trump will be the exact same.

But on the other hand, you did call me junior, so who knows.......ha ha ha

Also, are you saying you are a Republican who thinks for yourself, because earlier when I implied that you were a Republican you pretended like i was wrong......now you are pointing out the difference between Ds and Rs as if you are one........

Post of mine where I said I was a fan of the policies of anyone you just listed.

"Also, are you saying you are a Republican who thinks for yourself, because earlier when I implied that you were a Republican you pretended like i was wrong......now you are pointing out the difference between Ds and Rs as if you are one........ "

One generally aligns themselves with one party or the other based on the majority of of their beliefs. Yes it is correct that the majority of my beliefs (politically speaking) fall on the conservative side. However, I would not ever say that any of the politicians you just listed represent my beliefs. They are bought and paid for establishment do nothings. Just like the vast majority of all politicians.

Again. You still can't figure out why Trump got elected.

You can keep your head in the sand. Its your choice.

19. Thanks for making my point for me.

You won't like Trump anymore either once he is gone. You guys are like a broken record.

So, you're a Republican who doesn't like any Republican presidents or presidential candidates in the past 25 or whatever years except Trump.......LOL....And you don't like McConnel, or Romney or any of the Rinos in congress either, right?

LOL

No, actually that is not correct, is it. You are actually incapable of saying that you are a Republican.....ha ha ha

Are you really more of a libertarian? ha ha ha

Do try not to hurt yourself tripping over your bullshit.

Let me explain this to you...

"You won't like Trump anymore either once he is gone"

I DO NOT LIKE TRUMP NOW.

Got it?

Good grief some people are slow.

I would try to explain my political position to you but clearly you do not posses the requisite skills for comprehension.

Reagan gave Saddam the weapons he used to gas the Kurds.

So you think I supported the Iraq war?

I think you need to reevaluate your critical thinking skills.

Oh and you might want to check your facts about Saddam and where/how he got his chemical weapons.

You look ignorant when you make comments like that.

Sorry.

25. At the time

I thought is was worthwhile because I thought it would get us on Iran's western border, just like we were on the east in Afghanistan. I really did think it was a precursor to take down the Ayatollahs. Yeah, I was wrong. I'll freely admit it now. I actually trusted W when he said he would not leave Iran as a problem for the next Administration.

Paving the Middle East with glass was the only issue I was voting on at that time.

21. For the record...

It was leftys representing lefty organizations who definitively proved that Saddam Hussein had carried out the chemical attack.
The Bush Administration’s CIA operatives tried to blame the attack on Iran but “Joost Hiltermann, who was the principal researcher for Human Rights Watch between 1992–1994, conducted a two-year study of the massacre, including a field investigation in northern Iraq. His analysis of thousands of captured Iraqi secret police documents and declassified U.S. government documents—as well as interviews with scores of Kurdish survivors, senior Iraqi defectors, and retired U.S. intelligence officers—demonstrated that Iraq carried out the attack on Halabja, and that the United States, fully aware of this, nevertheless accused Iran, Iraq's enemy in a fierce war, of being partly responsible for the attack. This research concluded there were numerous other gas attacks, unquestionably perpetrated against the Kurds by the Iraqi armed forces. In 2001, Jean Pascal Zanders of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)'s Chemical and Biological Warfare Project also dismissed the (Bush CIA) allegations, arguing that "The coloring of the victims is more suggestive of sarin, which was in Iraq's arsenal." Leo Casey, writing in Dissent Magazine in 2003, observed that (CIA analyst) Pelletiere's analysis was based solely on images and testimony of blue discolorations and ignored all other evidence—including the recollections of hundreds of Kurdish witnesses; academic studies based on medical examinations, soil samples, and autopsies; and captured Iraqi government documents—proving Iraqi culpability.

Did you support the US invading Iraq to help the Kurds?

I don't give a damn who's side did what. I have my own opinion of what I believe is right and wrong. I do not need lefty or righty to tell me my talking points.

Where is the outcry from the left to go into Africa? Or didn't the left want us to leave there?

Isn't it the left that is always saying we need to get out of the ME?

Odd how they only care when its a political here here in the US.
