    to go....I cannot see how anyone can defend (in foresight, which I was using at the time, and CERTAINLY in hindsight) attacking (and toppling) Iraq.  A random casual student of the middle east would know the trouble we would have with Iran the moment we defeated the true enemy of our enemies.  Oh yes, Sun Tzu loves (SNARK...i cannot use italics on this browser) Bush's neocon "warriors".  Assholes all.  

    We're finding it's pretty hard to control Iran, right?  No wonder sadaam boasted about nasty weapons and was a total murderous asshole.  He lived next door to all that.  And they to him.

      I think we can recognize it in the Bush Administration (& to a lesser extent it remains in the Obama Administration).

      When those February 2001 Cheney task force maps dividing Iraq's oil fields among Western oil corps. were discovered via FOIA, the truth became crystal clear to anyone who didn't refuse to believe because of how 9/11 affected them emotionally.  But millions still don't know the basic facts of Bush Administration war plans for Iraq that predated 9/11.  

      Before elections have their consequences, Activism has consequences for elections.
