"oil for food" ripoff?
We're so selective on what we remember. America trains and arms Osama Bin Laden personnel to fight the Russians in Afghanistan. America sides with, supports, and arms Saddam to fight Iran. America even knows Saddam uses chemical weapons on Iranian troops but we turn our heads. Of course there's always the Iran-Contra fiasco yet we choose to focus on those terrible Europeans and the oil for food ripoff.
It appears to be okay if we do those behind the back things but God help the rest of the world if they try it.
The enemy of our enemy is now our enemy.
