once Obama took office Bush was absolved of all of this, this is Obama's Iraq, Obama's recession, Obama's debt, and Obama's America and the Republicans could've let you all off the hook and came in and took over, and set this country on the right track, but Romney declined the Presidency after winning 313 electoral votes, because the only reason he was running was to show that he could win even while barely trying, intentionally making an idiot out of himself multiple times, and in general making a mockery of the whole process, so enjoy your final 4 years of the punishment the Republicans have given you, we'll come make it all better in 2016, if you deserve it.

We'll never know what Cheney's Intel Unit was telling those guys behind the scenes. I distinctly remember one congressman saying Cheney's people told him Saddam had drones that could reach the east coast with nerve gas. Total BS, but scary. They wanted war, they got it, and they killed anybody who got in their way.

I've looked for that article since and it's pretty much gone down the memory hole like so much other stuff.

Still, they should have know they were liars. I could tell and I'm nobody.

Before we get too carried away here,  please remember that there WERE nerve agents in Iraq, which was the whole issue behind the whole U.N. inspection teams finding the storage areas unsealed after they secured them.  Furthermore, the military has been steadily disposing those stockpiles since the war began.

I think little Dubya now realizes that he was played like a fiddle by the real powers during his term. It's why he barely talks about his time as president.

He is starting to realize he was a useful fool. For a guy who had been told his whole life that he was special that has GOT to hurt.

He just happend to decide, with fervent conviction, what others told him he should decide.

Wars will be cleanly fought with very little overhead, political liabilities and consequences in the future when drone armies and automatons replace human soldiers.

The invading country will also has little to no public backlash because as long as no one's kid is dead the public will go on it's merry way even if drones are killing humans.

If wars are easy to justify nowadays they will be a cakewalk in the future when drone armies become realities. It's already happening now with the Predator etc... it will only get easier.

So, you still like it?

Yes, I do still support the invasion of Iraq. Why don't you give it a few years and then see how it all falls out. Was WWII popular towards the end? They had to institute a draft, was it worth it? Was the civil war popular at the end? They had draft riots, a peace party wanting to make peace with the south almost won the election of 1864 (sack of Atlanta stopped that), 600,000+ Americans dead, and half the country destroyed. Was the civil war worth it? Why don't we see how Iraq turns out? I absolutely think it was the right thing and I volunteered for the infantry, went to Iraq, went into combat, and I would do it all over again  if I had to.

Saw a news story on that. I was surprised at the self-reflection his painting shows. I suspect he is coming to terms with his actions and isn't the total shiat head of popular belief.

Cheney, however, is Satan's representative on Earth.


Most reports suggest that he and Cheney essentially hate each other, and have no contact. Bush eventually realized he was being utterly manipulated by Cheney. In his 2nd term, he started pulling away, and Cheney grew to despise him.

I certainly don't excuse him, or pity him. He was an awful president, who made morally appalling choices, and the sticky blood of our troops in on his hands. But I do keep hoping that he will paint a more revealing nude of himself, because his body excites me with trembling, passionate electricity. Am I so wrong, when it feels so right?

Confabulat: Every American who supported that nonsense war and fell for their bullshiat, when it was plenty obvious even at the time there were major holes in their story, needs to apologize.

I farkin' stood out in the rain with an anti-war sign in traffic. I never do shiat like that but I knew bullshiat when I saw it.

What was your excuse?


That's the thing though, you didn't know, you were opposing Bush and Cheney for your own partisan reasons and / or you hate and oppose any war. The latter I respect much more than the former, but I respect them both. Intelligence organizations around the world were in agreement with our own, you weren't some genius out there in the rain protesting, your gut feeling was just.. well, right. I'll apologize to you, I'm sorry you got wet out there holding that sign accomplishing nothing.

Generation_D: When do the easily deluded, easily conned followers get their share of the blame/credit for the military debacles of history?

Never. Its always those poor noble men and women who were led astray.


I wonder what you get out of framing it this way. Even I knew in 2003 invading Iraq was stupid; just about everyone I knew and talked to at the time did. But somehow, there were people in my group of friends who joined anyway. Apparently their reasoning is not something you are capable of understanding and in fact feel the need to crap on.... which frankly says more about you than them.

Generation_D: I knew better than to enlist at age 18. A lot younger. And now I, a functioning sane and un-f--ked up adult, only have to look on at all the glitter-tear ooh-rah bullsh*t that the military puts out to know I was right and all the people that fell for it were wrong.


It's fantastic when people turn an "I don't want to" decision into an "I was too smart for that" decision years after the fact.

He had me up until he said: "I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. "

So, he was making a major life decision based on a knee-jerk reaction to which he had no real information on other than the flurry of media info at the time. Then he got sent off to the admittedly wrong war, and now wants to biatch about it?

Here's an idea. Maybe wait more than 48 hours after a national tragedy so that you can get your emotions in check before deciding to sign your life away to the military to avenge something you really have no clue about at the time.

Unless you mean strong armed by their constituants, who wanted war.

But that's normal.  We call it Democracy.

You can blame a political party, I blame the American people who, like this soldier, wanted war.


The "American People" you claim "wanted the Iraq war" didn't, sorry.

We were kind of on board with Afghanistan and Taliban destroying. But Pretty much the entire farking universe knew Iraq was a traitorous cash grab.

You act like the general populace has power and a voice. Sorry, THAT is the most laughable thought in the thread so far.

Gee. A letter damning GWB and Cheney. Who coulda seen this coming. And from an outfit called TruthDig.

What did this guy think was going to happen? Tiddlywinks and ticker tape parades? Qar is hell and if you sign up to be a soldier, you are probably going to see the Hell.

A tug on the heart-strings moment means no one criticizes, but the issue of taking America into war deserves a lot more seriousness than a letter from a veteran, whose opinion is at odds with so many other veterans.

We'll never know what Cheney's Intel Unit was telling those guys behind the scenes. I distinctly remember one congressman saying Cheney's people told him Saddam had drones that could reach the east coast with nerve gas. Total BS, but scary. They wanted war, they got it, and they killed anybody who got in their way.

I've looked for that article since and it's pretty much gone down the memory hole like so much other stuff.

Still, they should have know they were liars. I could tell and I'm nobody.


Before we get too carried away here,  please remember that there WERE nerve agents in Iraq, which was the whole issue behind the whole U.N. inspection teams finding the storage areas unsealed after they secured them.  Furthermore, the military has been steadily disposing those stockpiles since the war began.

I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11. Had I been wounded there I would still be miserable because of my physical deterioration and imminent death, but I would at least have the comfort of knowing that my injuries were a consequence of my own decision to defend the country I love.

Sorry, it doesn't work that way.  You chose to be part of a war machine?
