Saborlas: There's no evidence Antoinette ever said it.
gimmegimme: trappedspirit: Mikey1969: This is kind of like the arsonist telling the fire crew that the fire might flare up again if they don't get all of the hot spots as he hops in his car and bails...Plus the firefighters leaving a smoking, smoldering heap and saying "Were done" and heading homeEspecially if the firefighters are the one who started the blaze in the first place.
Tatterdemalian: Whee, 200 comments mocking Fox News for noticing that Dubya's foreign policy prevented the invasion now roiling Iraq.
svanmeter: Diogenes: svanmeter: All the finger pointing at this point amounts to taking your eye off the ball. The true question here is Obama acting to protect OIL interest$, or is he being played for a fool by the Iranians to attack their Sunni enemies for them?So you're refocusing us by pointing a finger at Obama? I'm really not following your post at all.If you think Obama is relevant to the ongoing unraveling of Iraq at this point you're really deluding yourself.There would have been a strong possibility of this happening even if we had fully committed ourselves to Operation Enduring Occupation. Regardless of who sits in the White House.I am refocusing by pointing out IRAN's role in forcing Obama's hand. They threaten involvement, which caused Obama to rethink his initial impulse to stay out and blame Bush. Obama changed his mind and then said he "would consider all options" (while he sent in Aircraft carriers). He wanted to do nothing, but the specter of Iranian action caused his reversal. Now Iran can sit back and laugh while Obama does their dirty work against ISIS. Does this clarify it for you or are you still confused? Are you one of those who doesn't know the difference between Iran and Iraq? Let me spell it out for you again... Obama is motivated by protecting OIL interests in the region and he is being played for a fool by the Iranians.
Tatterdemalian: dascott: Tatterdemalian: Whee, 200 comments mocking Fox News for noticing that Dubya's foreign policy prevented the invasion now roiling Iraq./keep right on filling your echo chamber with bile//ain't making Obama's "smart diplomacy" work any better///just like mocking Sarah Palin didn't make Mrs. Clinton smart enough to keep Putin out of CrimeaYou know who else prevented the invasion now roiling in Iraq?Saddam Hussein.Yep... but there are some things worse than war, and Saddam's "peace" wasn't worth the price. Two words: "children's prisons.""The prison in question is at the General Security Services headquarters, which was inspected by my team in Jan. 1998. It appeared to be a prison for children - toddlers up to pre-adolescents - whose only crime was to be the offspring of those who have spoken out politically against the regime of Saddam Hussein. It was a horrific scene. Actually I'm not going to describe what I saw there because what I saw was so horrible that it can be used by those who would want to promote war with Iraq, and right now I'm waging peace." - Scott Ritter, UN weapon inspector and anti-war activist

Thunderpipes: Bush was right, Fark was wrong. News at 11:00.But heh, at least we have every western person in Iraq scrambling to evacuate out of fear under Obama's reign.Obama is stronk. Not.
I_Am_Weasel: Must have been rough to have the same name as the former President and have known the Iraq was a looming clusterfark.
stan unusual: tbeatty: Well, compared to what we have now, Bush was frickin' psychic (okay, he only has to be reasonably competent to outpace this administration). Bush looks better and better everyday Obama is president. Yesterday, half the apologists for Obama claimed no one could have seen this coming when he pulled troops out and the other half said it's obvious that the absence of Saddam left a huge power vacuum that would lead to this. Somehow "unpredictably obvious" is something Joe Biden or John Kerry might say as a legitimate response to incompetence.You obviously DNRTFA. You claim "Bush was a frickin' psychic" because he predicted that their would be increased violence and instability in Iraq if US troops were withdrawn and after that psychic insight he signed an agreement that legally bound the US to withdraw its troops. If Bush was indeed psychic- then his agreement to withdraw troops borders on treason.
GIVE THANKS TO BIG BROTHER!
HE KEPT US OUT OF THE WAR.
Lord_Baull: Tatterdemalian: Whee, 200 comments mocking Fox News for noticing that Dubya's foreign policy prevented the invasion now roiling Iraq.Fox News praises Tatterdemalian for conveniently forgetting that Bush invaded Iraq and removed the person that effectively prevented the invasion now roiling Iraq for 24 years.
Mouser: So, is this the thread where we bash Bush for being an idiot, or bash Bush for being an evil mastermind?
bunner: Geotpf: No. It most certainly does matter who is President.If Obama had lost to McCain, President Palin would have started World War III by dropping nukes on somebody, probably somebody who was our ally. (McCain would have died of a heart attack within two years of taking office.)So, we're pretty much stuck with degrees of useless and dangerous? Sounds broked to me.
bunner: Obama provided no health care.
bunner: The best thing about these threads is that nobody has learned from the ostensibly ground breaking presidency of Barack Obama, black guy, that it don't matter if a stick of butter is president, and it hasn't since 1980. The president's job is to hold the goose while the grease goes through it and be the public opinion dartboard.
dolphinsgonwild: Fox News praise Obama for his outstanding health care
Surool: Wait... you mean when you illegally invade a country, remove the government, and kill tens of thousands of their citizens you don't suddenly end up with the middle eastern version of Mister Rodgers' Neighborhood?
Thunderpipes: Bush was right, Fark was wrong. News at 11:00.
cynicalMFer: Of course they did -- Saint "W" can do no wrong.
svanmeter: All the finger pointing at this point amounts to taking your eye off the ball. The true question here is Obama acting to protect OIL interest$, or is he being played for a fool by the Iranians to attack their Sunni enemies for them?
Satanic_Hamster: I've noticed that right wing themed troll accounts seem to have largely stayed out of this thread, even with 100 comments in.Right wingers; doesn't this level of bullshiat ever just embarrass you? Even a little?
ox45tallboy: Fox News praises Lorena Bobbitt's problem-solving abilities.
