The War Drums Sound . . . Again

In response to the invasion of Iraq by the ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) extremist group and the apparent collapse of the US-trained Iraqi Army, pundits and politicians over here have started blaming President Obama for "losing Iraq."  The argument is that we left Iraq too soon, not giving the Iraqi Army that we - you and I, dear readers - spent billions of dollars equipping and training enough time to get ready.

For starters, Iraq was "lost" by the George W Bush Administration and its enablers the very instant we began military operations against that country.  As I said in an earlier post, we had Saddam Hussein in a box and would occasionally poke him with sharp sticks.  He was getting old, and his sons were such a set of thugs that the generals could be counted upon to kill them in some spectacular fashion as soon as daddy stopped breathing.

The thing that packs lint straight up my nose is the fact that the same set of shitheads that helped gull the USA into yet another land war in Asia, the same people that should have done a perp walk straight to Federal prison on January 21, 2009 for 4500 counts of negligent homicide, war crimes and fraud, are given red carpet treatment by the so-called "liberal" media to bang that war drum again.

John McCain even wants General Petraeus to lead the Army back into Iraq.  Petraeus, to his credit, has pooh-poohed the idea.  We would be seen as supporting the Shiite al-Maliki regime against a Sunni ethnic minority and the Sunni ISIS.  Of course, Captain McCain (USN, Retired) had no idea of how to be a war leader the last time he ran for president, either. 

Doesn't stop the jerk moderating Meet the Press from inviting him and Aging Lesbian Impersonator Lindsey Graham, though. 

Or the venerable Wall Street Journal from letting Evil Fucking Sociopath Dick Cheney and his horrid spawn from soiling its editorial pages.

Or any of the Sunday morning chat shows from inviting Comb-sucker Wolfowitz, or John "I am the Walrus" Bolton, or any of the rest of the Wrong Then Wrong Now Brigade from lying out their asses once again, in hopes of defrauding the people of the United States of American one more time.
