Old Bones To Discuss If The Iraq War Was A Blunder

Future historians will no doubt debate whether the Iraq war was a blunder or a stroke of brilliant leadership.

Via Mediaite: Former President George W Bush told Bob Schieffer Sunday morning that he had no regrets over the decision to invade Iraq.

Bush was on to discuss his new book praising his father (and to honor Face The Nation's sixtieth anniversary). 43 insisted he did not invade Iraq to finish what his father started, and said he was surprised when Saddam Hussein called his bluff over the invasion, but didn’t regret the decision to go in.

"I think it was the right decision", Bush said. "My regret is that a violent group of people has risen up again. This is al Qaeda plus. I put in the book that they need to be defeated. And I hope they are. I hope the strategy works".

Lying Lester is predicting it will not work and that the Islamic State will increase it's power. At least while the lazy Obama holds office. Perhaps a future rEpublican or lIbertarian president could begin to fix the problem starting in 2016?

Who knows? I do know, however, that any reflection on George Bush's actions in regards to Iraq is Old Bones and should not be discussed. If it was a blunder or not should not be discussed.

George W. Bush is no longer president. bArack hUssein oBama is, and it is oBama who is wholly responsible for the current mess in Iraq. No matter that if the former President hadn't invaded and toppled Saddam NONE of this would be happening. This may very well be true, but there is no lesson to be learned by pointing this out.

Maybe that means we are doomed to repeat such "blunders"? Perhaps, but in regards to that Lying Lester says "so what"? Those "blunders" will be for future generations to deal with, so Lying Lester does not give a shit. The point is not to sully the legacy of George W. Bush. Or, more accurately, the rEpublican Party.

Because if that happened then the American people might decide to vote for dEmocrats, which would be very bad. This is why, while Lying Lester hates both dEmocrats and rEpublicans, ultimately he will defend rEpublicans when he has to.

Because rEpublicans are the lesser of two evils. And until the day comes that the rAbble can be tricked into voting for the greater of three evils (Libertarians), Lying Leser will continue to defend rEpublicans when he has to.
