Stirring up crap so we can intervene later

In which the gentleman from Texas, thanks to a Wikileaks cable, explains how the U.S. signaled to Iraq that it was ok to invade Kuwait, made an Ultra-Villain out of Saddam, and spent a few trillion and killed several tens of thousands so they could redesign the Middle East. 



We're not being threatened by anybody that we haven't encouraged to threaten us. 
Let's bring the boys and girls back home.  Let 'em defend Laredo and Tucson and San Antonio.

I can't see the video, but if this is about April Glaspie, it's more a case of a weak ambassador giving a mealy-mouthed response to a veiled threat of aggression.

don't attribute to conspiracy what can be adequately explained by incompetence.

you don't send an inexperienced, timid woman to be ambassador to an evil Arab dictator.

Nick,
He's sent a totally inexperienced (but not timid) woman to be our ambassador to the entire world.

Google: Hillary

I was talking about George HW Bush's ambassador to Iraq in 1990, but the problem seems to have gotten worse.

Hillary may not be timid, but she's not effective. I don't think she's accomplished anything, anywhere. She's essentially in exile.

I just love the way North Korea dismissed her and demanded that her husband come back to beg for the release of Al Gore's employees.

Are we respected by the world yet?
