The Absurdity of the Iraq War

What the hell is wrong with America these days?! Is democracy there DEAD?! How else can you explain a war that should never have happened being allowed to go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on? Does honor and common sense no longer have any meaning in America?

Think about it! President Bush Jr said in 2002 that we should invade Iraq because it had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) and thus was a threat to its neighbors. What idiocy! The Soviet Union had WMDs, including NUCLEAR weapons, and that was actually a good reason NOT to invade it, resulting in a decades long “cold war”. Even Bush Sr refrained from invading Iraq at the end of the Persian Gulf War. In 2002, Saddam Hussien was not even threatening to invade any other country, not even Iran or Kuwait that he had attacked before. Whatever happened to “innocent until proven guilty”? Saddam had already allowed the UN weapons inspectors back into his country long before the invasion in 2003, and they had found nothing yet. But Bush wouldn’t wait and he wouldn’t allow the evidence to speak for itself. He and his subordinates ASSUMED that Iraq was a major threat and kept saying so again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again. It seems that if you tell a lie often enough, it becomes believable. But reality remains the same whatever Bush Jr or anyone else says. Once it became clear Iraq didn’t have WMDs, the whole basis for the Iraq War was nullified. And yet five years later, we still have troops there. It’s simply insane!

Any Republican who is still supporting this war, in which so many of our troops have died for lies and remain virtually imprisoned in Iraq, has no business opposing abortion. Right to life, my @$$!
