Ah, yes --- I believe our first "operation" invading IRAQ was called "Operation Enduring Freedom." i remember ON THAT DAY, saying that it was more likely (scramble the syllables) Operation "ENDING UR FREEDOM." (by moving the middle of end-UR-ing, etc). I don't think the Iraqi's have had hardly a days Peace ever since then, not to mention no drinking water, or electricity. BUSH sure did them a big favor, didn't he?
Since Bush was AWOL during a full year of his service in the Texas Air National Guard, he should never have been considered to be "leadership" potential, even for the Boy Scouts camping trip to Yosemite. Also, he flunked the flight physical to keep flying planes in the TANG, (some say because he never showed up, due to fear of the blood test for alcohol & drug abuse). Nevertheless, being "rich" in America allows you some small advantages. Such as breaking any Law that happens to come up. With NO consequences. -- Dare I mention 2 "rigged federal elections"?
Yet, somehow this AWOL college student with only a "C" average, was allowed to be our Commander in Chief. Put in charge of our Economy and Budget, & our Armed Services, and even to Wage WAR with other nations. And this was accomplished largely by Lying to Congress, followed by Lying to the United Nations. (A very large breach of ethics, equivalent to far more than a "war crime").
Anyway fast forward 12 or 13 years, $$Billions later, with thousands of our soldiers either dead or crippled, (their lives shattered forever) & our US Budget falling completely apart, our nation traumatized, whole cities falling into disrepair, millions of people jobless, our entire system of govt shattered, --- US politics destroyed beyond recognition by the so-called Koch Bros "TEA PARTY", -- where all Ethics have disappeared. DUE TO A stupid WAR that enriched all the Republican OIL millionaires (ie: Koch, & Bush & Halliburton), & left the REST OF US to pay the price, while they all luxuriate in vast "capitalist" splendor. Swiss Banks are bulging at the seams with US dollars, stolen from you & me, the American people.
For while the GOP all profited enormously by that war, WE THE PEOPLE were left abandoned by the GOP principles that the "little people" do not matter, -- we are only pawns in the game, while the Big Boys pull all the puppet strings. We are to put OUR bodies on the line in Battle, so the RICH guys play golf at luxurious country clubs, go yachting in Cape Cawd, (OMG), imbibing liqueurs of exotic origin, & for lesser wealthy types there is whiskey such as Chivas Regal costing a mere $10,000 a bottle. And of course, Macallan 1926 (fine & rare) @ $10,600 a bottle.
Why is our country, (bankrupted from all of Bush & Cheney's WARS), spending all the "little money left" of our Treasury, putting even MORE into the rotten situation that has bankrupted us? If somebody wants to END the situation in Iraq, either NUKE IT, or go away & let them work it all out on their own? WE GOT THEM INTO THIS MESS, & then decide we have not killed enough soldiers yet, so gotta go FINISH IT?
