Iraq: Five Years Later

I was struggling trying to figure out what to say about the Iraq War. Most everything has been said over the last 5 years. So, instead of me ranting I’ll let PBS Frontline remind us how retarded this whole ordeal is.

This story is told by former Secretary of the Army Thomas White (who was fired by Rumsfeld), Dana Priest from the Washington Post (who broke the Walter Reed story and, if I’m not mistaken, the secret prisons story), and Thomas Ricks from the Washington Post (author of Fiasco).

I guess it is easy to write this off as incompetence. They didn’t know what they were doing. But I think it is worse than incompetence. If you are a moron and you don’t know what to do that’s one thing. This is different. Cheney and Rumsfeld knew and understood war. And they understand the government. The problem is that they don’t believe in government. It isn’t that there wasn’t post-war planning because there was (mostly in the State Department, which Rumsfeld shut out of the game). But the post-war planning was thrown out. It was underfunded. It wasn’t necessary.

If you don’t believe in the power of government how can you create a government in Iraq or anywhere else? roulette game,online roulette game,roulette game downloadno deposit bonus online casinoplay bingo onlineblack jack betting strategy888 casino review,888 casinohow to win at blackjackblackjack casino game,play casino game online,casino gameblack jack betting strategy,black jack,black jack onlinecasino video pokeronline video poker gametelecharger jeux casino gratuiteswww casino cafetariacasino bonus no deposittelecharger jeu de casinocasino en europlay keno onlinecraps comcasino de parisvideo poker bonusjeux du casino gratuitesjeu video casinogeant casino en lignevideo poker downloadnouveau bonus casinocasinos on linecodes bonus casino770jeu jack blackcasino en ligne bonusgagner roulette,une m�thode pour gagner � la roulette,methode pour gagner a la roulettecasinos gratuits en lignejeux pour casinocasino sur le nethit and run blackjackjeux casino pokerbonus gratuitsplay free kenocoupons bonus casino 770jeu slots casino gratuitesgambling blackjackcasino en ligne,casino en ligne bonus gratuites ,jouer au casino en ligneroulette anglaise jeuxblack jack bettingjeux jack blackbonus sans depot casino770casino online francaiscasino machine a sous gratuitesvideo poker en lignejeux de roulettecode bonus casino770meilleur casino francais They knew that business could perform any function that they needed. This was only one of the fundamental problems of the Iraq War.

The combination of a president who isn’t curious and advisers who are extremely radical, egotistical, as well as idealogical served up the Iraq War for us.
