Still No End In Sight

Fifteen years ago George Bush destroyed Iraq.  From The New York Times:
Fifteen Years Ago, America Destroyed My Country
And fifteen years later, the demons his Republican Party turned loose to make their war the Great Litmus Test of Patriotism still walk among us unmolested:
No one knows for certain how many Iraqis have died as a result of the invasion 15 years ago. Some credible estimates put the number at more than one million. You can read that sentence again. The invasion of Iraq is often spoken of in the United States as a “blunder,” or even a “colossal mistake.” It was a crime. Those who perpetrated it are still at large. Some of them have even been rehabilitated thanks to the horrors of Trumpism and a mostly amnesiac citizenry. (A year ago, I watched Mr. Bush on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” dancing and talking about his paintings.) The pundits and “experts” who sold us the war still go on doing what they do. I never thought that Iraq could ever be worse than it was during Saddam’s reign, but that is what America’s war achieved and bequeathed to Iraqis.
And the process those demons put in place to use the media to wipe their catastrophes from history and exonerating themselves over and over again of any responsibility for the evil that they do over and over again have damn near destroyed this country.

Didn't you hear Sarah Huckabee speaking for President David Dennison?

America has no say of how other countries operate.

Guess we are still in Iraq and Afghanistan on a special investment invite business adventure?

Moose and Squirrel never congratulated Boris and Natasha for their mischievous communist plots?
I stand with Moose and Squrrel. !!

I think most any photo of the D Day invasion, the Bomb dropped on Japan (if written in Sarah's Bible) might have altered her statement. But it is not in her Bible and the only history the conservative blob acknowledges is ,the North's aggression of the south and how they are the party of Lincoln that led that very aggression.

So again,
I stand with Moose and Squirrel.............
