At long last, the war that never should have been waged has come to an end. What will future historians write of this madness? I suspect nothing good. because, after all, it was a war sof choice based on propaganda. And The People fell for it because of vengeance in their hearts. And ignorance, lots of ignorance.
I’ve written many posts about that war and I don’t feel the need to rehash the points I made. Many Americans have now caught up with the truth and the facts. Too bad they were duped for such a long time, but the propaganda was intense and they were looking for revenge for 9/11. Stupidity reigned supreme.
Yesterday President Obama was the target of those Americans who believe that our nation ought to continually meddle in foreign wars. John McCain was especially pathetic in his rhetoric that we ought to maintain tens of thousands of troops in Iraq. Then there were the hapless GOP candidates saying much the same. Except for Ron Paul who said:
“It’s no different than it was in 2003,” Paul said. “You know what I really fear about what’s happening here? It’s another Iraq coming. There’s war propaganda going on. To me, the greatest danger is that we will have a president that will overreact and we will soon bomb Iran.”
Perhaps he was referring to candidate McCain in 2008 who sang, “Bomb, bomb, bomb-bomb Iran.”
The other GOP candidates hawked war, as usual, in an attempt to bolster their credentials wit the far right-wing of their party. Are Americans interested in a new war now that one of two has ended? I think not. Americans have tired of war, and with 4500 dead and 30,000 of our military severely wounded during the Iraq War, it is obvious that Ron Paul, alone, represents the will of The People these days.
I wonder if GW Bush still thinks that Saddam Hussein had WMD’s and that he was capable of delivering them to our country.
Pathetic. Pathetic loss of blood and Treasure.
