So you help drag the nation into a bloody war with no exit strategy, cost the country $200 billion and counting, 1,500 American deaths and counting, tens of thousands of physical and mental injuries, and counting, and untold numbers of Iraqi dead.
All on false pretenses, with no real understanding of how our troops would be received.
How are you punished? .
Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, a lightning rod for controversy as one of the main advocates for the Iraq war, is President Bush's choice for World Bank president, administration officials said on Wednesday [...]
By tradition, the United States selects the World Bank president while Europeans nominate a head of the International Monetary Fund. Bush's choice of Wolfowitz must still be ratified by other World Bank members, a process that could prove unusually contentious.
Wolfowitz is a deeply controversial figure in Europe because of his role in designing and promoting the Iraq war.
He has also been a frequent target of criticism from congressional Democrats for what they called his "rosy" assessments of the Iraq war. Before the invasion, he assured Congress: "We are dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction and relatively soon."
Another "fuck you" from Bush to the world community. Mind boggling.
