From McClatchy Newspapers

An exhaustive review of more than 600,000 Iraqi documents that were captured after the 2003 U.S. invasion has found no evidence that Saddam Hussein’s regime had any operational links with Osama bin Laden’s al Qaida terrorist network.

The Pentagon-sponsored study, scheduled for release later this week, did confirm that Saddam’s regime provided some support to other terrorist groups, particularly in the Middle East, U.S. officials told McClatchy. However, his security services were directed primarily against Iraqi exiles, Shiite Muslims, Kurds and others he considered enemies of his regime.

Who gives a flip. There were many reasons to oust Saddam, none of which had anything to do with Al-Qaida. Have we forgotten 18 U.N. resolutions continually broken - isn't that the ultimate power broker for the godless LGF Watch crowd?

Al-Qaida is there now and my military heroes are killing them by the bushel.

I know that is upsetting to the American loathing Watch crowd but your side is losing the war. It's going to kill you guys when America comes home victorious, never mind your prayers to Satan and Allah.

"Al-Qaida is there now"

Emphasis on the word "now". They weren't there before the invasion.

Sorry, Tex. It's disingenuous for the LGF crowd to suggest that our military invaded Iraq to support the UN. Two reasons: 1/ The UN was against the invasion, and 2/ lizards don't typically support the UN.

The resources we spent in the Iraq invasion and occupation could have been more wisely invested elsewhere: Afghanistan, tax cuts, infrastructure, research, etc.

As a non-practicing Methodist, I'll disregard your suggestion that I pray to Allah and Satan. That's an odd claim.

Sphinxter,

Emphasis on the word "now". They weren't there before the invasion.

I don't care where they are as long as we dispose of them according. All I got to say is better "there" than "here".

Personally, I think it has been a brilliant strategy to smoke them out where convenient so our military can mow them down. I hope they all flock there...

Relatives?

Tex, you can imagine that most Iraqi civilians don't really approve of your troops using their country as a killing field, especially when they themselves get caught in the fighting and lose their property or their lives.

To be frank, most of this mess you brought upon yourselves with this war. And by "you" I mean the military, and everybody who supports EVERYthing they do, no matter what.

Tex is still suffering from the delusion that "mowing down" turrists is accomplishing anything more than providing him with more masturbation material. Imagine the smell in his parents' basement.

Yuck.

Tex Taylor said...

legalize,

Your insults reveal a sickness I often find with anti-American, military dissing libs such as yourself, even when referring to folks like me married with children.

You revert to childish, juvenile humor pertaining to something like masturbation when they have nothing to add of value. What are you? About 16? Considering most of you don't work, have no sense of humor, and are generally society's greatest underachievers, you need to find new material if you're going to insult.

But keep rooting for the terrorists.

For at least the 300th time I've stated this here, I'm not part of the LGF crowd. I only speak for myself.

Since there are many things I disagree with C.J. about, I have about as much in common with Charles as I do the LGF Watch crowd. Except maybe like Charles, I root for America. Unlike the Watch.

I root for America

Are you Ron Jeremy?

Ron, I'm a fan of your work.

Comment I posted before on irrelevant post, per your request I post here:

LGFW,
Are you going to correct your story about "Saddam had no ties to Al-Qaeda"? You always criticizing Charles when he does not correct his articles when goes against him. What about you?

Read this on Hot Air:

Saddam supported at least two al-Qaeda groups: Pentagon Update: What it means

They link to the original sources.



M.J. replied:


AI:

Could you post in the relevant post please.

PS The story was posted with no comment. Therefore we didn't make the claim that he had no ties to al-Qaeda, the media source did.

PPS the original sources can at best link to two groups who were barely active and were alleged subsidiary groups of AQ. So it's a bit of a stretch to say these are the same links that the US went to war over.

That's desperation.


Then now I say:

I don't believe Saddam was active with Al-Qaeda, they are simply enemies of each other that might had some mutual enemy, so some few cooperations possible, some real ties I don't think so. However, since you always criticize CJ for posting some controversial stories without comments, then his minions attack, and trash others, then when such story turns out false, or half truth, he does not update, I thought to say:

but isn't that what exactly you have done here too?

Tex Taylor said...

LOL,

Ron Jeremy? You mean the bloated whale used to be porn star Ron Jeremy? Now there's a name I haven't heard in a long time. Figured AIDS had put him away by now. He's even famous enough to have a Wiki entry!

Why is it carter I picture this burr-headed cornhole? What's the usm stand for? Unfulfilled sadomasochist?
