Arming Saddam

The Dissident Frogman has produced a helpful graph, showing where Saddam got his arms from. Hint - it wasn't us:

Heh. I always did wonder when we were supposed to have given them all those T-72s, MiGs, Scuds, AK-47s, RPGs, etc., etc., etc....

Ha. An excellent graphic it is too. A printed copy is still on the wall above my computer screen after all these years. It's adjacent to a printout of the image featured in this blog post, which dates back to 2003. The blog author deals with the issue of media duplicity, specifically that of an article published in Life magazine (1946) and authored by John Dos Passos, with the title "Americans are losing the victory in Europe". You might want to take a look.

Now if I can only find that graphic showing the distribution of oil-winning concessions per country in Sudan, then I'll stick that up as well.

Thanks for that link. Extraordinary parallels.
