    are the same as contemporary video evidence of gas attacks going on in 2003.

    But hey, whatever we need to believe to make Bush = Obama and Obama = war criminal be true right?

    When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.

    •  Bush is as much a war criminal as Truman or LBJ (0+ / 0-)

      Why is there this obsession with calling Bush a war criminal.  I've never understood it.

      Bush was completely wrong with respect to the War of Choice in Iraq.

      But war criminal???!!!!!!!!!!!

      Learn about Centrist Economics, learn about Robert Rubin's Hamilton Project.

      •  Bush is considered a war criminal (5+ / 0-)

        because it is believed that he and his top advisers knowingly consented to, and probably outright ordered, torture of enemy soldiers and also - depending on your position as to whether 'enemy combatant' is a valid status under international law, civilians. Furthermore, many believe that he did not actually believe any of the intelligence that formed the basis of military action, which would mean that he attacked a country without any provocation or need. If you believe that you can make the argument that every action in Iraq was a war crime. I personally think that's stretching it, but I think I'm fairly accurate on what people's reasoning is.

    •  right but do you have proof it was Assad's (1+ / 0-)

      regime who even launched the chemical weapons? No, you just have Kerry and Obama saying that's what happened. I don't think they are necessarily repeating the Iraq war but I do think there are other motives than simply stopping the use of Chemical weapons. Obama is fighting a nihilistic, dysfunctional and destructive Congress plus an populace who are angry over the NSA scandal. This could distract us from the NSA and get Congress to move on easing at least the defense related portions of the sequester.

      Let's not let 2014 be anything like 2010. Republicans only win when we stay home!
