People Will Never Lie to You, Part 2

I’m tired of “Bush Lied, People Died”.

Oh sure, it’s very clever. It rhymes and everything. Good job on that.

But I am tired of it. It is blatantly false. This is why.

1. It is referring to the “benign” time that Clinton lied. Sure, he only lied about whether or not he was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. No big deal, right? Wrong. He did it under oath. That’s really bad. That’s illegal, in fact. HE COMMITTED PERJURY. Perjury is a very serious crime, and if the Big Dude in the United States of America can’t see how very very very wrong perjury is, to the point that he is willing to commit it over something minor like a blowjob, then imagine how very fluid the rest of his ethics are.

That’s why he was impeached by the House.

2. Bush didn’t lie. Saddam Hussein lied.

Let me say that again, in case you missed it. SADDAM LIED, not Bush. Why were we so convinced that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction? We had some photos, that maybe implied WMD. But more importantly, we threatened Saddam that if he didn’t let UN inspectors in to see whether or not there were WMD, we would go to war. We told him this repeatedly.

He knew he didn’t have them. Why didn’t he just let them in? He could have avoided this whole mess, right? It seems stupid to have played like he had them when he really didn’t, right?

No, not really. During the 1st Gulf War, we threatened to go in and take out Saddam. In fact, we Bush the First promised the Kurds that if they started revolting, we would swoop in, save the day and knock out Saddam.

We sort of did that. We swooped in. We stayed a few days. We left Saddam Hussein in tact.

If you want to talk about a Bush lie, that’s the one you need to be pissed over. After we scooted away, patting ourselves on the back, Saddam systematically gassed the Kurds for their treachery. The treachery that we instigated, the treachery that we did not back up in the form of ousting Saddam. He punished them for believing Bush’s lies.

So, Saddam really didn’t think this Bush was going to change his behavior. He figured there would be some bombing, but that he would be fine, because he was last time.

With that thought in mind, he was concerned that if he announced that he didn’t have WMD to the world, that he would put himself in danger.

Danger from whom, you might ask? Iran. If Iran knew that he was defenseless, they would have no problem flying in and taking over. And THAT would be a disaster.

So: if your choice is an unlikely attack by the benevolent USA, or a guaranteed, brutal, violent attack by your major enemy, which would you pick?

This is why he pretended that he had weapons he knew he didn’t have.

Bush didn’t lie. Saddam did. To protect himself from Ahmadinejad. All because the first Bush lied way back when.

By the way, this theory is not mine. It’s from a brilliant writer over at http://www.nationalreview.com, but I can’t remember which one right now, so I’m having a hard time finding the piece. I do, however, believe it to be true. There is no other plausible explanation for why Saddam lied about WMD. When I figure it out, I will link it.

In fact, what I really wonder is why so few people are questioning his lie, and so many are pointing the finger at Bush.

Also, I was pooped on by a pigeon yesterday. Maybe I should blame that on Bush, too.
