Could be. But you can bet that Iran was unable to jew them down on the asking price.

Sounds like it is time to invade another small middle eastern country so we can all stoke our egos and brag about how powerful we are.

C'mon, get real.  We sold them to Israel.  With money we gave them to buy our weapons with.

Using the money we gave to Iraq. The cycle is almost complete. We will now have to negotiate payment to Iraq to destroy them.

Iran was supplying arms and explosives to Iraq as far back as 2003.

www.longwarjournal.org

/of course, they were supplying Saddam's mujihadeen instead of the Iraqi Army
//see, IEDs don't grow on trees, and the ones capable of taking out even unarmored humvees aren't made in basements
///they require large industrial factories dedicated to producing high-order explosives, and are supplied to terrorists by at least a small nation-state backing them

Yes, because they all wake up every morning and their first thought is "God, I hate Israel".

When America begins loving their children more than they hate someone else holding oil reserves, then there will be peace.

I look at that picture, and I kind of see the same thing in the United States (as an outside observer). Seems like your country is always raising a new generation of young people to go off and fight in some foreign war (I sometimes wonder if your gov't does this so the movies studios have a new movie to make). Unclear goals, unclear winner. Unclear objectives, slightly unstable goverment and president. Like you're one step away from coming apart at the seams.
Sure the kid in the picture might be dressed differently, but the objectives appear to be the same. To die in a war for your country.

And Iran is equivalent to 525 Rhode Islands.

Iraq is 139.  Afghanistan is 208.

Maybe he meant Syria.  That's only 59 Rhode Islands.  Hey, it makes about as much sense as invading Iraq after 9/11,

The whole thing is Hillary Clintons fault, because she voted for it.

And that is actually what conservatives believe. If the DhimmyCraps hadn't voted for it, it never would have happened.

Technically, they are correct.

Dude is trolling hard...   See, he is equating teaching children to hate Jews/Israel, and glorifying suicide bombing in the name of Allah, with the straw-man American "war for oil" that anti-war protestors love to idiotically accuse us of.

This happened: in 2003 all the oil in Iraq belonged to the Iraqi Government.

In 2014 it all belongs to Shell. And the US didn't get a dime out of the deal.

Yeah, ok, sure.

A pic of a small quantity of weapons proves nothing.

And you're telling me that someone with a basic chemistry background can't produce explosives in the kitchen?  Yeah, ok, whatever.  I mean, it's not like the recipes are on the internet or anything.
