Take a look at the equipment in the Iraqi military under Saddam, take a look at who built and designed the reactor complex at Osirak, who provided military advisers to Iraq and tell me we were in bed with him.
Get a grip.
The French helped build a reactor facility in Iraq. The US provided intelligence, technology, and the means needed to make WMDs. We exported anthrax to Iraq; we also provided funding (over a $1 billion) and arms.
This is a LA Times article written in 1992 that supports my argument.
BUSH SECRET EFFORT HELPED IRAQ BUILD ITS WAR MACHINE
We were in bed with Saddam for years. See "Iraq-gate." Get a grip.
