  •  There had to be a little... (none)
    ...this asshole tried to kill my daddy about all of this.  

    Remember this was about getting Saddam.  

    The fact that another middle eastern asshole murdered 3000 Americans on this presidents watch didn't seem to carry much water.  

    We had to GET SADDAM...he was an immenent danger.  I believe BushCo believed this.  His advisers cooked the intel, and sold it to an uncurious, somewhat dull, bureacrat.

    These people live in fantasy land anyway.  They had backdoor channels to Iraqi Generals who said they would give up as soon as the "good guys" arrived and would be greeted as the great liberators.  

    Then the whole shootin' match was being stirred by Achmed Chalabi who turns out to be an Iranian Dupe.

    No novelist would every make this stuff up because it is just too unbelieveable.

    The tragedy continues...Thirteen hundred plus American Dead, Thousands more wounded, 100,000 Iraqi dead, and "Goddamn boys we are gonna hold elections in two weeks come hell or high water"...declare victory...and get the hell out.

    •  Actually no need to even hold those elections... (4.00)
      ...because Diebold Tabulators have given Allawi a 51% win over all other comers.
