McCain Dismisses Reason Why We Drove Iraq Out of Kuwait

Thinkfast listens to John McCain so we don’t have to:

My friends, we have reached a crisis, the first probably serious crisis internationally since the end of the Cold War. This is an act of aggression.

Josh Marshall has a real problem with McCain’s personal grandiosity and provides this list:

Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, followed by the US expulsion of Iraq from Kuwait. Collapse of Yugoslavia and subsequent wars of aggression between successor states. US invasion of Afghanistan. US invasion of Iraq. There are a slew of other examples of serious international crises over last 16-18 years.

So when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait in the summer of 1990 and started to turn his military towards Saudi Arabia, this was not a serious international crisis? I supported Bush41 back then for no reason? Anyone who believes this nonsense is not qualified to be President.
