Raharu: I thought we were supposed to get some yellow cake after or something.[cache.boston.com image 410x303]
monoski: I have not seen a signature on the surrender document yet. Oh wait, that is because it will never end. See Korea and Vietnam DMZ's for examples.
Popcorn Johnny: GWB is a hero, get over it.
GardenWeasel: Popcorn Johnny: GWB is a hero, get over it.Now I'm certain you are just a troll.
Lost Thought 00: What percentage of their oil reserves do we control? How much plunder did the troops return with?
Sgt Otter: caught Osama bin Laden hiding in Baghdad
Notabunny: And by the way North Korea is acting, we're about to win the Indonesian war, too.
aaronx: I remember hearing that all the Iraqi soldiers kept 'melting away' (like the Wicked Witch of the West, I guess).Turns out -- and this ended up being hilarious -- they had all just gone home with their weapons in order to be ready for the inevitable civil war. An inevitable civil war that our generals and our Secretary of Defense and our President (or even the guy in charge, our Vice President) didn't seem to have anticipated for even a second."Yay, we won!" I kept hearing. "Man, we're farked" is what I was thinking.
keiverarrow: Oh yeah, what did we win?
Corvus: What exactly did we win?
nekom: I'm not sure you can honestly say we won or lost that war. It just happened. We knocked down the regime, if that's the criteria for victory, what were we sticking around for a decade for?
netizencain: "Despite all the problems of the past decade, the overwhelming majority of Iraqis agree that we're better off today than under Hussein's brutal dictatorship.Iraqis will remain grateful for the U.S. role and for the losses sustained by military and civilian personnel that contributed in ending Hussein's rule. These losses pale by comparison, of course, to those sustained by the Iraqi people."For truth.
Corvus: The US government didn't get the plunder, the US European oil corporations did.

keiverarrow: Oh yeah, what did we win...
NostroZ: So, yeah, "we liberalized the Iraqi oil market, bringing it to the world marketplace... and effectively cutting out the Iraqis from their inherited natural resources".
vartian: Well, that's weird. That whole thing was George Bush's idea, wasn't it? And yet this guy is claiming it was the right thing to do? How can that be right?Isn't it odd how everybody stopped keeping a death toll of Americans killed overseas after January 20, 2009? But then, as the great lady once said: What difference does it make?We're seriously having a conversation about an opinion piece in the Daily Caller - like it matters?
JerseyTim: I'd like to make a joke about how this sounds like it could have come from Baghdad Bob, but it turns out that farking guy was right.As a 2012 CIA study concluded definitively, Saddam Hussein didn't have weapons of mass destruction. Nor did Iraq have 18 mobile laboratories for making anthrax and botulism, as Secretary of State Colin Powell claimed before the United Nations in February 2003, nor had Saddam Hussein recently tried to buy large quantities of uranium from Africa, as President Bush asserted in his 2003 State of the Union address. A decade of war was based on things that had never taken place.

ApeShaft: Yeah, and you also totally won in Vietnam![i.imgur.com image 600x387]
