Thanks, Dubya…..You Bastard.   Leave a comment

You know, from now on, every time I hear a conservative talk about how we need to go to war with Iran, I’m gonna’ bring up Iraq and ask them, “How the hell can you sleep at night, you fucking pricks?”

To quote Booman Tribune, read the following two items and try not to bash your head into the nearest brick wall…

8 October 2003 — The war on terrorism “is greatly served” by the removal of Saddam Hussein as a source of instability in the world’s most volatile region, says President Bush’s National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice.

“We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved in the September 11th attacks. Yet the possibility remained that he might use his weapons of mass destruction, or that terrorists might acquire such weapons from his regime, to mount a future attack far beyond the scale of 9/11,” Rice told the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations during an October 8 address on the war on terrorism.

Balance that with this…

Fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) — also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) — seized control of Mosul, the capital of northern Iraq, after six days of heavy fighting against Iraqi security forces. Iraq’s speaker of parliament, Osama Nujaifi, told reporters in a televised news conference that the militants have taken over the entirety of the city, along with several villages and a military air base south of Mosul. This means, according to reports, ISIS now has control of some military aircraft and helicopters.

Is it just me or is America going to be paying for George W. Bush’s disastrous foreign adventure in Iraq for decades to come?
