... I believe it was Gen. Schwarzkopf or Gen. Colin Powell
who said, as Bush prepared to crank up 'Desert Storm':
“YOU BREAK IT YOU OWN IT”.
Hi Holly... Some engineers were working on the border of Kuwait, it was common for Iraqi recons to ask these guys for food though their transmission were to the Gov were disregarded. Eagle satellites were monitoring the Iraq forces gathering and Intell knew this.
One poor gal Gov employee- blew the whistle and was confined to quarters after bring this to attention, she was put under house arrest isolated. nothing was mentioned of her again, I TRIED FOLLOWUPS on her, zip..-.Sadam, sh**tbag or not went after Kuwait because of their directional drilling, taping IRAQS OIL.
WRITE THIS OFF AS MY OPINION, Some folks are irritated if they don`t have a source included,I do not have the time where I am at present,
however if a reader is interested it is on backloads P.P. I`m in South America and having a rough day, but I ask them sincerely to dig around.
If some view this as hearsay, so be it.
Sadam was no saint, but he killed terrorists, it must be admitted they were a soverign nation and held a relation, though not the greatest with the USA, intel knew of this invasion. THOSE WHO FEEL THIS WAS A TRULY SUPRISE ATTACK may consider investigation.
Yes, they certainly broke Iraq, but I have an inkling they won`t own it.Despite the rhetoric, we created a great many reasons for this terrorist abomination, planed or unplanned. ( I say very much planned).Isn`t it ironic how this has turned into a nightmare, a true horror show, well they had a good CON, factorys of WMDs , Yellow Cake verified by of all people the Nigerians, and of course they firmly state Sadam trained terrorist,-which is BS, again no source, no time, to dig it up If some believe it is HS they can do the digging.
You break it you own it, that I can`t get around my head that statement.
