    And the question resurfaces, was Saddam really so bad? ISIL is just another cost of Bush’s war, and there’s a real chance Saddam might have died of natural causes by now, or been deposed. But let’s not think of alternative histories, like Bush 41 telling Saddam NOT to invade Kuwait in an “Arab to Arab thing”.

    At least the guy is upset about something based in reality.

    People are expendable. Meanwhile, Mayan pyramids, mounds or artifacts experience damage or destruction almost on a daily basis in Central America.

    Bush destabilized the Mideast, and O finished the job.

    Twin sons of different mothers.

    They both make people nostalgic for Bill Clinton…

    The Middle East: Not stable since the decomposition of the Roman Empire. This is just more obvious with the present day media.

    Perhaps one should put aside the hate for a moment and consider this article.

    http://nation.foxnews.com/2015/05/23/musings-average-joe-george-w-bush-smartest-human-who-has-ever-lived

    “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability and his nuclear program.” Sen. Hillery Clinton (D-NY) 10/10/02

    LOL

    Saddam’s sons were far worse and more unpredictable than their father.

    Still living in fantasy land I see.
    Oh, and Hillary’s (spelled correctly) statement was based on the faulty information that the Shrub allowed Congress to have. Nice try, but knowing what we know now……Which is what was known then but not disclosed to those who needed to know. Instead the Shrub disclosed only what HE needed us to know.

    She also voted for the resolution authorizing President Bush to take military action in Iraq based on the “intelligence” the Bush administration was giving out.

    For troops in the U.S.-led multinational coalition, the death toll is carefully tracked and updated daily, and the names and photographs of those killed in action as well as in accidents have been published widely. A total of 4,491 U.S. service members were killed in Iraq between 2003 and 2014.

    Counts of deaths reported in newspapers collated by projects like the Iraq Body Count project found 174,000 Iraqis reported killed between 2003 and 2013, with between 112,000-123,000 of those killed being civilian noncombatants.

    This does not also count all the injured, family lives shattered, refugees, and all the money and effort that went into this war that could have been used elsewhere. Look what we got for that rush to war.

    If you were labeled a traitor and unpatriotic if you voted against it, maybe you would have voted for it, too.

    What about the Ottoman Empire (~1300-1920)? At least until WW1, it was certainly more stable than since then.

    “Bush got the entire world to do his bidding…”


    Oh, did he now?


    How quickly the Righties forget that every other industrialized country in the world other than Britain refused to follow him into Iraq, such that the Bush administration had to bribe Third World countries with billions of dollars in aid just to send over 5 or 10 of their soldiers to show a presence, euphemistically known as the “Coalition of the Willing.”


    Right Wingers, still desperately re-writing history.

    In the House of Representative’s 126 Democrats, 6 Republican, and Rep. Sanders (I-VT) voted against Iraq War Resolution.

    Rep. Sanders (I-VT) is currently running for President as a Democrat.

    In the Senate 1 Republican, 21 Democrats, 1 Independent voted against the resolution. You can not let labels determine who you are. The same people that label other people as traitors and unpatriotic wear small US lapel flags as if this superficial signal that they are more patriotic than others. Actions matter more.

    Hillary has long since said it was a mistake. The Republican candidates who knows probably depends on who they are talking to.

    Obama refused to arm Syrian militants at the beginning of the Syrian war because he could not determine which militants were extremist and which were not. This includes ISIS. Both Republicans and some Democrats even within his own administration were pushing to arm the militants to topple Assad. Obama has probably received more hate, more calls that he was not born in America, let alone patriotic, and people trying to undermine him than any other President before him.

    On a more personal note not that I had a vote but I have been against the Iraq war from the beginning. I think we use war to much, and rush to quickly into war with no real end game plan.

    I have no problem going against the crowd. It is probably my comfort zone. You just let the facts be what they are and deal with them for the best outcome.

    There are probably many people on this forum that would call me unpatriotic.
