You want to see countless hours of video and read the statements of certain Liberals who were for it before they were against it?
Of course there were circumstances and information that had changed from that time until the later invasion. I'd offer that, sometimes, it's felt necessary to go through with an effort knowing full well your feet will be walking in mud. This doesn't mean you've changed your mind about what barriers will be encountered.....just that options have run out. I've also heard plenty of argument by some that there'd have been no need for phase 2 if phase 1 was extended to include the ouster of Saddam. Unfortunately, we don't get to try both and pick the outcome we like best.
... sometimes circumstances are thrust upon a nation, that requires a country to take action anyway. I accept this as reality. I can forgive someone for being ignorant of what their actions might bring but I can not forgive someone who ignored his own predictions in favor of pursuing an occupation where the policies are based on political dogma and fiscal nepotism.
This tape is old news... I saw it months ago. That doesn't make it any less of a smoking gun... Cheney's fingerprints are on the trigger... and future american credibility is the victim laying bleeding on the street. My only fear now, is that the dems are no better equipped than the neo-conservatives in saving the victim before she dies.
And no... this victim isn't going to apologize for getting shot in the face like Cheney's last target did.
"Cheney changed his view on Iraq
He said in '92 Saddam not worth U.S. casualties"
instead of talking to himself; he should have listened to himself.
just another war-talker, all form no substance.
in less than 491 days (08 would have to be a leap year) another national nightmare will be over
or who was our leader way back then:
and they followed us here to fish for shrimp. shiver, shiver
it will be difficult for the dems(if elected) to fix what powell predicted. I don't envy their plight. blame shifting to begin one second after new president elected. so it goes.
...of "not getting it." We didn't lose in Vietnam because of politics. We lost because we were in an unwinnable situation. We should never have been there in the first place.
Rent "The Fog of War" sometime. It's a documentary about Bob McNamara, JFK's Secretary of Defense. He doesn't mention Iraq but the parallels are striking.
Vietnam was "lost" because Congress would not back the effort. The North lost and made a peace deal which they broke when forces invaded. They knew Congress would stab the troops in the back and scuttle the government in the South.
Shameful, and the lefties are trying as hard as they can to repeat it.
It is YOU who doesn't "get it".
