"Wait, you mean to tell me we invaded Iraq with the full force of the US military, to prevent Saddam from using WMDs, and then we didn’t find any?
WTF ??? OOPS ???"
Great post, bradley. I’m glad we didn’t state any other aims or goals. Make sure you don’t drive, you have an ENORMOUS blind spot.
“But seriously… Just because one Iraqi exile says Saddam sent the WMDs to Syria, I’m supposed to believe that?”
It’s amusing that you would sooner believe some little dave (140 pounds of pure pussy) at the new york times over guys THAT ARE INVOLVED.
“How frigging gullible do you have to be, to believe THAT guy?”
From the guy who believed in john kerry.
“He hadn’t been inside Iraq for 15 years, before the war started, so how the hell would he know.”
Yet, it doesn’t warrant any discussion? How about the opinions you swallow from guys that have NEVER been there?
“Isn’t this exactly the kind of “bad intelligence” on Iraqi WMDs that Bush is blaming the CIA for? Getting one fishy-sounding guy to make wild claims about WMD is almost exactly how we got into the war in the first place. Now we’re supposed to fall for it again?”
Really? What a nice little fellow. Just to get your facts straight, THE MAJORITY OF THE WORLDS’ INTELLIGENCE SERVICES BELIEVED THE EXACT SAME THING.
Interesting that you choose to believe saddam over afore mentioned intelligence services.
“Bush is about to ask Congress for another 120 BILLION DOLLARS of US taxpayer money, for the next year’s worth of military spending, just on Iraq and Afghanistan.”
Oh, I see. You are against both wars?
Must be a lonely little fellow.
“We spend 1.5 billion tax dollars PER WEEK in Iraq.”
Oh, back to Iraq. Please be consistent. What is stopping terrorism at it’s source worth to you?
I’d be interested in some hard numbers.
“Think about that! You really want to tell me, that since there was no WMD in Iraq”
There were of course. Plenty of undeclared weapons. saddam pouring money into R and D, preventing his scientists from leaving the country, on and freakin’ on.
Oh, don’t let the truth get in the way of your little rant (it makes a better democrat of you).
“and that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Tenet and Powell were all dead wrong about WMDs,”
Wait a second. First of all, they weren’t “all wrong.” Second, please include ALL THE leaders of your party. Would you care to read some quotes?
“that you think it’s a good idea to spend 1.5 billion dollars A WEEK just to make sure that Iraqis can vote?”
What was the War for American Independence costing France per day in adjusted dollars?
I’m glad you think creating democracy should be on the cheap.
I’m glad france didn’t agree with you in 1777-1783.
“Because in the last election the Iraqis voted for a Islamic system of government (the Iraqi constitution they voted for includes Sharia law, which is fundamentalist Islam).”
That’s democracy. bill clinton was President for eight years. I didn’t like it, but there it is.
Oh, “In God we trust” is all over our currency. Are you up in arms?
“Couldn’t we be using those hundreds of billions of tax dollars better we’re spending by destrying and then rebuilding Iraq, by spending at home in the USA?”
Reminds me of the guys protesting Apollo 11. Look up their quotes. “We shouldn’t go to the moon because bradley’s family is in need.”
“Do you guys really care so deeply about a democracy in Iraq?”
I care deeply about democracy being our best defense against facism.
“Because I bet most Americans couldn’t find Iraq on a map if their lives depended on it.”
Time to leave your trailer. You’ve been watching too much jay leno. The United States has the top minds on the planet.
