US sold missiles to Iran shortly after they released the hostages (duh, does this seem suspicious?) and gave money to SA rebels
Don't know enough about the situation, please allow me to study it and get back to you.
US supported the Shah of Iran
US support Noriega
US supported Marcos
And what was their opposition, again?
US supported, you know, that guy who used to run Iraq
Or was it just perhaps a way of bleeding off another enemy...?
The US invaded Iraq looking for nuclear weapons but did not find them but did not even notice that syria, right next door, did have them (well, actually, was just getting close).
Would you mind specifying where your source for 'nuclear' in that sentance is? From the news reports at the time, I was under the impression that any Weapon of Mass Destruction, be it nuke, bio, or chem in nature, would qualify. And no, we didn't know whether or not he had them; that would have required that we be allowed to inspect, which we weren't. Thus, the possible threat had to be taken at full value.
France supported the US before it was a country
A favor for which we were duly grateful, and have returned (in modified form) a couple of times since then.
"Just another way in which France always immediately surrenders when threatened
I hear you ignorant twits repeat this lie so often I am beginning to think that you might actually believe it but that could only be true if you don't read anything and listen only to Rush (and Rush wannabes).
The statement is being used as an insult and a slur. And as many have made clear in the media and elsewhere for some time now, the truth-value of a slur doesn't matter so much as how many people you can get to agree with it. [Note: I don't happen to believe that myself, but take a look at the past couple of decades for evidence.]
