    Maybe someday Bush will paint us a picture of WHY we invaded Iraq.

    I wonder what the painting would look like. Maybe a hoop shot, because the CIA said…“slam dunk” when asked if Iraq had WMD. Or…perhaps perhaps a gaggle of geese because France, Germany, England and Israel thought so to. Or…perhaps a bunch of clowns from the posturing of Saddam and his certifiably insane sons.

    To reduce the rise of state sponsored Islamic terror.

    To control a central location to prevent Iran from invading Saudi Arabia

    To get key bases for the US to influence the activities of the Middle East instead of Iran, China , or Russia…

    That seemed like the plan, but what POTUS who attend a muslim elementary school changed that???

    1. Bush, jr had information we lack, like the invoices for WMD the US sold to Saddam. And Con Coughlin proved that the 19 terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11/‘01 hijackings were all members of Saddam’s Republican Guards with fake passports, and I’m sure we can trust the brilliant journalist Mr Coughlin.


    2. The US has never engaged in torture, under Executive Order, Congressional Resolution, and Supreme Court validation. When the US uses the techniques pioneered by Torquemada and an unnamed Chinese expert, it MUST be called ‘enhanced interrogation.’ There was an old Greek puzzle: is it good because the Gods do it, or do the Gods do it because it is good? Every patriotic American knows that, if America does it, it is Good, and makes the world a better place, and that ‘enhanced interrogation’ saved millions of lives, but all details about that ‘enhanced interrogation’ must remain classified Top Secret, so no details or proof can be given, nor are they needed: every patriotic American knows the US did the Right Thing and never tortured anyone, and upheld rather than violated International Law.


    (And I’m sure the fact that Bush, jr & Friends had huge oil holdings, the value of which had fallen when oil dropped below $20 a barrel after the Iraq-Iran War, and the value of which sky-rocketed to almost $150 a barrel after the Coalition War on Iraq boosted the price, had absolutely nothing to do with the War, which was only because Bush, jr knew Saddam had ordered 9/11/’01 and had a vast nuclear arsenal, within days of deployment, and was stopped by coalition forces just in the nick of time, a pressing necessity that forced the US to send in troops with inadequate armour and materiel.)

    As one who shares the passion, here is an article with examples of his work.

    political points aside, he is good at it. I would buy one – NOT for the “art” – but simple because it was done by an American president.

    You guys need to start looking at the man behind the wheel today.

    Run out of ideas Nick? How much longer do you think Bush will be relevant?

    “How much longer do you think Bush will be relevant?”

    Indefinitely. Quite possibly forever. We are today paying for Eisenhower’s overthrow of a freely elected government in Iran and replacement by an inept despot called the Shah. Heck, we are still paying today for Andrew Jackson’s shortsighted policies toward Native Americans. The list goes on. Even things that George Washington did affect us today.

    Like it or not the folly of the Bush invasions (and some domestic policy) will be brought up so long as the severe consequences are felt, which could be generations. It is a good thing – “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat.” Changing presidents does not pass the torch of blame for previous bone-headed policy.

    After three or four bannings it gets complicated but not impossible to keep up with the trolls.
    I would think rewording the hate would keep us guessing, but being trolls they do not think of that.

    Then again, so many are the same (may BE the same person/program) cannot tell the difference.
