Five Bloody Years
Today marks the fifth anniversary since a felon by the name of George W. Bush told us major combat operations were over in Iraq.
Remember the arrogance? Remember the swagger?
Remember how he used the tragedy of 9/11 to lie us into this disaster, which has now claimed more than 4,000 American lives and God knows how many innocent Iraqis?
Sure, the neocons knew it all. We were going to march into Iraq, be greeted as liberators and be out of there in less than six months.
Of course there were no weapons of mass destruction. Of course there were no links between Saddam and bin Laden. Of course Bush and his cronies were lying. Anyone with a brain had that figured out before the first shot was fired.
But unfortunately, in America, that leaves a lot of people out of the loop.
Does it matter that a new poll suggests that George W. Bush is the most unpopular president in modern American history? Probably not. But I am a little surprised that 30% of those questioned favored the war.
Who are these idiots? What country are they living in?
How could they possibly believe in this fiasco and if really they do, could they please do us all a favor and enlist so they can see this nightmare up close and personal?
Now John "Insane" McCain is picking up on the Bush doctrine. McCain believes in his little twisted mind that major combat operations really are over. Poor guy. He needs help...desperately.
Anyway, you neocons break out your flags, put up your yellow ribbons, and dig into those freedom fries.
Skip around the block chanting, "the surge is working, the surge is working." Maybe that'll drown out the sound of explosions in Baghdad.
Whatever you do, don't try and help the situation. You idiots have done enough damage already.
