    In hindsight, we likely should have cut a deal with Saddam.
    Keep Kuwait and even take Saudi Arabia and brutalize all of the people you feel like, but you have to pump cheap oil forever.
    If nothing else, it would have saved thousands of lives.
    “Doing the right thing” never works in the Middle East, so we may as well benefit from the depravity that Islam has spawned.

    Why doesn’t Iraq invade Kuwaite again?
    Did you have a fun trip home ? What was that called again?
    The Road of Tears or something like that.

    If Obama were President he’d direct the US to fight with Iraq.

    Funny, but every single country liberated from oppressors by the west is now a jihadist hotbed. Just a coincidence, of course.
