You are exactly right!!!!!!!!
“no more sacrificing our troops for a people who hate us and only want us to save their sorry butts again.”
Sadly, most of those who bravely supported us are probably DEAD ALREADY! Either that, or they found a way to bug out.
I never underestimate the ability of our special forces. In fact, I knew they would shock the world in Afghanistan. Only Rush and I were accurate forecasters of the orginal Afhganistan strategy. [If anyone else did, I apologize.]
But my faith in BO? Zero.
Liberal are going to go nuclear.
“We found WMDs, so stop passing that lie around.”
News to me. And it would be news to my source, ex-President George W. Bush. He has said many times that we did not find WMDs and that that failure has caused him much anguish. Of course, I am sure that your sources are much better than his.
If think that you really don’t know liberals. Their dead duplicitous souls will support any level of blood and guts so long as their demigod is running it and their blood is not being shed. Little barry bastard boy’s worshippers will hail his action not despise it.
So Saran gas binary components are not weapons of mass destruction to you ... and you have your sources in media, not directly from President Bush, so don’t try to float that crap either. The components to make atomic weapons were found in quantity and a truck caravan driven out of Iraq by Russians, over to the Bakaa Valley, is of no consequence to you. Got it. Disgusted, but we have your number now.

August 21, 2006 press conference
Now, look, I didnt part of the reason we went into Iraq was the main reason we went into Iraq at the time was we thought he had weapons of mass destruction. It turns out he didnt, .....
Decision Points, by George Bush
In discussing the absence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Bush notes, That was a massive blow to our credibilitymy credibilitythat would shake the confidence of the American people. He then adds: No one was more shocked or angry than I was when we didnt find the weapons. I had a sickening feeling every time I thought about it. I still do.
Interview The Times, November 10, 2010
Former US President George W Bush has said he regretted flying a Mission Accomplished banner on the USS Abraham Lincoln in 2003 and inaccurate information on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
64-year-old Bush told The Times newspaper among his regrets were flying a Mission Accomplished banner on the USS Abraham Lincoln in 2003, the premature reduction of US troop numbers in Iraq after the invasion and, above all, the inaccurate information on WMD.
He said: The reality was that I had sent American troops into combat based in large part on intelligence that proved false.
This brief list of quotes took all of five minutes to find on Google (heard of Google?). You might try doing a little research of your own before deciding that you’ve “got” someone’s number.
The instant posting you just made shows you work for the ‘other side’, not conservatism. And by the way, shill, there is a thread up right now which enumerates the chemical agents the ISIS has now taken control over, so go serve your filthy lying masters on some other forum. Disgusting troll obamaroid.
I, somewhat surprisingly, had to defend this very same assertion only about a week before. So I just quoted from my reply to that gentleman.
Maybe you can answer a question of mine—why are you attacking me as not being conservative when we are talking about a question of fact? Conservatives are the conservators of facts. The enemies of facts are liberals. If my facts are wrong, please show me. I would like to know. I am no liberal. I embrace facts.
Are my quotes from Bush wrong? Does Bush in fact believe that we found WMDs? Please let me know where he claims that we found them. It must be after his memoir, Decision Points, was published in November 2010.
What about Dick Cheney? He has also received a lot of grief over the WMDs. Has he ever claimed that they were found? What about Secretary Rice, Secretary Rumsfield. Surely someone in Bush’s administration would have claimed that WMDs were found if, in fact, they were. This would at least indicate that there is a legitimate controversy about whether WMDs were found, even if Bush believes otherwise.
I am not an agent for the “other side.” I am your friend in the pursuit of truth and justice.
I suspect that whatever he proposes will probably, due to a lot of nonsensical rules of engagement, end up being Carter’s hostage rescue attempt times ten.
No, I just challenged one of your beliefs. You seem to find this to be very disagreeable. If I had known it was going to be this difficult for you, I would not have responded.
And again, you lie. You are here to serve the regime, so you are looking for opportunities to spew their spittle, you disgusting regime shill.
The Telegraph is reporting that “Jihadist’s have taken control of Saddams chemical weapons stockpile”
They must be lying. As there weren’t any. Right?
Course, it’s just a little nerve gas. And such.
Obama Invades Iraq. Code Pink is unaivalable for comment...
Read a little more closely. This is where Saddam stored chemical weapons. It doesn’t say they are there now.
“17.09 Chemical weapons produced at the Al Muthanna facility, which Isis today seized, are believed to have included mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX.”
The article goes on to say, “17.05 The Chemical Weapons Convention, which Iraq joined in 2009, requires it to dispose of the material at Al Muthanna, even though it was declared unusable and “does not pose a significant security risk”
So the chemical munitions that are there are unusable and are not a security risk. WMDs are usable and do pose a significant security risk.
But, yes, the headline was misleading. I can understand that.
