I didn't vote for Bush, Jr. because I thought he was heading in the war direction. My co-workers made fun of me because I told them I didn't want the USA to be in a war. I just told them that if he is elected, we will be in a war within six months. I may have been wrong about the length of time, but I was right about his direction.

Now, has anybody noticed what I have been thinking about Obama. I am concerned that his goal is to become our first communist dictator. I hope I am wrong, but the signs are there.

Wake up, America!

According to Baker, Bush told Herskowitz, “The ideal thing was a small war, and this is why Bush said nobody was going to be killed in Iraq because he thought it would be small war.”
Right....that's what Bush Sr. did, remember....and he lost re-election. When has waging war been successful for a president...WWII? Although Japan declared war on us first (actually the message came late by a feww hours....we got it after they had already attacked Pearl Harbor....many Japanese soldiers were upset about it).

I've seen little mention of it, other than a brief mention on Olberman's show.
All raisin brain needed was a Rumsfeld and a Cheney to make his fantasy a reality. They were foaming at the mouth to have a war and Bush was exactly the puppet that they needed. Hanging is too good for them. Bush hasn't been in the public eye too much these days, has he? He's keeping such a low profile as Cheney's running off at the mouth is digging a hole for all of them.

He's a crazy old koot and a notorious bush hater.

Didn't he also accuse the CIA just recently of domestic spying, without any evidence to back it up?

He also claimed the US would attack Iran numerous times while Bush was in office.

His outlandish and tabloid-type sensationalism is hilarious, except for the fact the some gullible leftists hang on his every word.

Let's not forget his claim of covert ops by US commandos in Iran.

It is obvious he is borderline senile.
If you had a small fraction of the credibility that Sy Hersh has, we'd all listen to your insane rants.

As it is ... (yawn).

You're a liar, Saddam was cooperating with the UN.

It was Bush and nobody else that kicked the inspectors out.

Try to follow along....

When the inspectors were looking for those WMD, the ones used on the Kurds were gone. They were used on the Kurds, they no longer existed. The inspectors were looking to see if there were more WMDs which they were pretty sure didn't exist because Saddams son-in-law already told the Brits that Saddam no longer had an WMDs.

I am even going to go slower... at one time they did exist but Saddam either used them all or destroyed them. That is why there was none to find. This all happened well before we invaded. It was just a reason to invade. I think most people have got this by now.
Just so to keep you up on current events. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 either. In fact, none of the reasons that Bush gave were actually true. This is all documented and discussed. I am not going to post the cites. Just look them up.

First of all they gassed the Kurds nearly 20 years ago with the gas we gave him. Second is that when it happened we sat idle as they exterminated these people-we did nothing. Third is to use it as a some sort of excuse to invade some 20 yrs later is disingenuous and ignorant at best. Fourth is that gas is not the type of WMD that Bush and his cronies claimed Saddam had and was ready to use.
