Seriously, you other countries out there. You don't want ot be invaded?
Knock of the silly shiat.
Do something constructive.
Come up with a great song and dance number.
You don't see us invading Macarena and Gamham style countries, now, do you?
You don't see us goign after the people who wrote the farking Limbo and even the folks who brought us the hip 50's dance the Watusi are pretty much forgotton.
You want to stay the fark off our radar?
Invent a great cheesy new dance and give it to us.
That... or... a shubbery.

Arkanaut: And Bush Sr. went in with a much bigger army than Bush Jr. did -- a quick check of Wikipedia shows that the 1991 coalition was nearly 1 million soldiers, while the 2003 invasion was done with 300K soldiers, only about half of whom stayed for the occupation.

Shock and Awe.

It only works if you don't also try to "win the hearts and minds" of the people you're at the same time trying to "shock and awe" into submission.

whidbey: Ego edo infantia cattus: We won?

Well shiat, load the next one already.

Dude this is not a rate your gf thread. GTFO.

This is Fark. Eye bleach and big boy pants sold separately.

This reminds me of that scene from "Antz" where the main character's in a parade, being the only survivor of a war with the termites, and one of the cheering crowd has a sign saying "1 to 0. We win!"
2013-04-09 05:09:05 PM  
The shiate majority thanks the US while aligning themselves with Iran.
2013-04-09 05:11:09 PM  
By the way, we won the Iraq war

Good joke, good joke. Now do one about Vietnam.
2013-04-09 05:13:06 PM  
and it only cost 6 Trillion bucks and how many lives and how many soldiers with brain damage and lost limbs and health ruined.

we *won* i guess.

Aarontology: We shouldn't have fought it in the first place.

you mean 'accidently' killing 2 to 700,000 iraqi civilians (nobody knows exact number) is a problem?

Wow, that's generous of you. My description tends to involve a firing squad.

SilentStrider: FlashHarry: and when are we going to liberate syria, north korea, zimbabwe, and west virginia?

change West Virginia to Kansas, and I'm in.

As a resident in the only part of the state not owned by the T party by now...yes we would greet you as liberators.

PreMortem: Wait, we were at war? When did this happen?

while george bush jr was handing out tax cuts to big business and the wealthy.

Laughed so hard, that I spat out the silver spoon.

oldfarthenry: To the winner goes the spoils six trillion dollar clean-up bill.

lol    those punk republicans don't know anything about the 6 Trillion dollar cost (and dead/wounded soldiers and dead iraqi civilians).   fark you, Republicans.
2013-04-09 05:19:35 PM  

DeltaPunch: Of COURSE we won. To admit otherwise is to acknowledge that we committed the most expensive and idiotic mistake in the history of the free world.

America never loses.   even when we lose, we 'win',  thanks to the best Propaganda big business "news" machine in the World.

Ronnie's taking his Dirt Nap.   shhhh.  don't want to wake him.

You call Iraq a war?  We knew we'd smash their military in weeks, and we did.

Unfortunately we also smashed their political infrastructure to pieces, causing complete chaos and requiring us occupy that hellhole for a decade.

Now we have a nice Iran backed dictatorship taking over.  USA! USA! USA!
2013-04-09 05:29:04 PM  
What did you get, Charlie Brown?

I got Iraq.
2013-04-09 05:30:48 PM  
Iraq sucks and it sucks more now after the U.S. went in there and made it suck.

I want to wake him. I've got so many questions to ask him.
2013-04-09 05:33:43 PM  
So happy Iraqis are better off now than they were under Hussein. Because it was totally worth it. Now let's go liberate the Norks, because you know, they're suffering and everything.

/F*ck GWB. F*ck Neocons. F*ck Republicans.

Surely there must be another panel to that cartoon...  something like the father saying that he could not support a war that was based on funnelling money to private corporations and needless loss of life.

Jesus... What year was that published?
2013-04-09 05:52:30 PM  

Sgt Otter: We seized all of Saddam's massive stockpiles of nuclear weapons, caught Osama bin Laden hiding in Baghdad spooning with Saddam, U.S. troops were out in six weeks, and the war paid for itself.  Just like Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz promised.


I thought we caught OBL and Saddam during a Wal-Mart raid...

That's a photoshop - Bush would never use a teleprompter.
2013-04-09 06:21:17 PM  

Wyalt Derp: If by "we" you mean "Halliburton etc" then yes, I guess 'we' did.

Good point. Who are "we" anyway?

I would argue that the Republicans started the war and they lost it. But their enemy is the Democrats, not the Iraqis. Those hundreds of thousand of Iraqi corpses were just props in the great drama of American politics.
2013-04-09 06:21:56 PM  
Here I thought it was the biggest mistake ever, by the most evil president ever. At least that's what I've been told again and again by our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left.

Stopped reading here. Nothing of value can come after this. Though my eyes did drift down to where the guy who wound up in charge of Iraq is very glad he wound up in charge of Iraq. Good to have an unbiased cross-section of the Iraqi people tell us that.

On the other hand, I do appreciate that he acknowledges that I am his moral, ethical, and intellectual superior.
2013-04-09 06:22:44 PM  
Aaaargh, forgot to make my point. As a Democrat, I'd say we won.
2013-04-09 06:23:34 PM  

lennavan: SkeletorUpInHere: As a somewhat right leaning person, I don't understand why anyone says we won/lost.


Once we got there, there was no going back. You carry it out, whether it takes 2 weeks or 20 years. Politics are out the window. You can't pull out because you'll look weak as a nation. Take it on the chin. Tough learned lesson.

I cannot possibly imagine any person with even just a passing familiarity with US history thinks we actually learned any lessons here whatsoever.

If we'd learned any lessons from US history, we wouldn't have been in Iraq in the first place.
2013-04-09 06:25:47 PM  
The comments on TFA have gotten amusing, in a pathetic sort of way.

Now that the link has gotten outside of the echo chamber, the ACTUAL AUTHOR is reduced to "b-b-b-but WE WON!" to every negative comment.
2013-04-09 06:58:52 PM  
The world is a better place without Saddam, or his sons, in power.
2013-04-09 06:59:08 PM

Dude O Matic 5000: The world is a better place without Saddam, or his sons, in power.

Not our problem he was in power, or his sons. Never was. Mad?
2013-04-09 07:13:44 PM  
Technically we won Vietnam too.  We never lost a battle.  It worked out well for us didnt it?
2013-04-09 07:19:14 PM  
F*ck anyone who tries to justify that black mark on our history. F*ck 'em straight to hell.
2013-04-09 07:20:48 PM  

Red Shirt Blues: ApeShaft: Yeah, and you also totally won in Vietnam!

I am not a violent woman, by nature, but I really want to cockpunch the guy who wrote that article.
2013-04-09 07:57:02 PM  
We're Iran?

because that's who "won."
2013-04-09 08:10:53 PM  
Well, it has been a while since we've seen a new justification for Bush's Crusade. I thought we'd stopped seeing them altogether.

Expect to see this one a lot more. The last one "well, we overthrew a dictator! Why do you love dictators so much?" stopped working.
2013-04-09 08:19:09 PM

This one time I beat up a retarded kid and I was really proud of myself.  Put that one in the win column.  Although I don't understand why everyone around me found it repulsive.. Me #1!!
