    ^So I see that military history is among your many other great intellectual virtues.

    I believe our current president is culpable for continuing the military presence in the middle east long after Bush handed over the legacy of his administration. Ima makes one valid point in that we send in our troops for a fast strike action and then try to turn them into nation builders. IMO it’s better to just leave the cesspool of the middle east to their own devices. They will annihilate each other (Sunni vs Shia) quite effectively, as they have for centuries.

    Not one Bush has been willing to sign, though — or pay for.

    Not a very pretty picture…

    “Guernica” depicted the Spanish Civil War, where yes, Germany did supply air power, not WW II. BTW, it was the Communists who fought Franco, and lost.

    I thought the big 0 campaigned on the premise that Afganistan was the “right” war. He took office, sent in a reduced surge, announced when we would leave the Afgans to fend for themselves, and has left them as he (the big o) continues to brag about his victory there. If my memory is correct, the “cartoon” is very WRONG.

    And Cheney still believes that terrorism is in its last throes.

    I remember watching Bush in a press conference shortly after the initial invasion. A foreign reporter, maybe British, asked for the goals. Bush answered ‘regime change’. The reporter pressed him and said surely there must be more goals than just that. Bush got somewhat testy and assured him that regime change was the only goal.
    -
    And that part I believe. They honestly believed that we would be welcomed as liberators and treated like those old newsreels of the liberation of Paris.
    -
    They, Cheney and the Neocons, were so f***ing arrogant, that they had made NO preparations for what happened. They had no clue about the various factions and thought they could easily install a friendly regime and get access to their oil.
    -
    When Bush gave his Mission Accomplished speech, I think they all believed they were done.
    -
    To me, it shows that arrogance is more dangerous than stupidity.

    ^it’s also a great example of how expensive it is to do something on the cheap.

    @dannysixpack

    ^ I think that was just Rumsfeld back pedaling. I think they were just flat out not prepared for a longer war. Even when it was obvious that the terrorism and attacks were going to continue, they couldn’t admit it publicly.
    -
    So, 4000+ troops were killed, tens of thousands were casualties, hundreds of Iraqis killed and maimed (no one knows how many) and a trillion or so (including a billion cash that disappeared) spent, all because our ‘leaders’ were so arrogant they thought it would be a piece of cake. And those same people continue to believe it.
