I think this war started to go sour even before Bush left office. The Surge got things under control, but there still was no longer any real point to it.

We fought the war in order to put Muzzies back in power and give Iraq’s oil to the Chinese and the French?

Billions of dollars and thousands of lives lost. There was a point to it in the beginning, but I’m afraid it got lost sight of, or maybe dragged into the mud by the Democrats and the peacenik opposition, with whom Bush constantly compromised and apologized.

Bush ignored several truths about that part of the world. On purpose and to his and our detriment.

You cannot have democracy and islam in a country when islam is equal or stronger than democracy.

You can’t ever fight with one arm behind your back.

When you gain the momentum you can’t stop and expect what you’ve gained, you’ll just keep from now on.

Can you site an apology? I don’t recall Bush apologizing. I do think we should have left them to kill each other instead of letting our best die for worthless muslems that were not willing to fight for their own freedom.

This war started to go sour before the first U.S. soldier set foot in Iraq.

Iraq once had a leader who was very effective at quelling sectarian violence. His name was Saddam Hussein.

It was the U.S. that toppled his government, remember?

I'm sorry, but my Give A Sh!t doesn't work anymore.
