On the Fact that We Now Know with a Fair Degree of Certainty that that Supposed Iraqi Troop Buildup on the Saudi Border on the Eve of the First Gulf War Was Nothing but Pure, Unadulterated Propaganda (the Aim of Course Being to Get the U.S. Public Behind "Desert Storm") -

And when you couple that with the fact that the Bush administration all but waved Saddam into Kuwait, the fact that this was essentially a complicated and long-standing dispute between two repressive and undemocratic oil regimes and so why pray-tell would we want to get in the middle of it anyway, etc., boy is it ever getting harder and harder to call this a "good war".
