Of all the insanity, stupidity and incompetence the Bush administration foisted onto the American public in the past six years, the Iraq War will prove the worst lie, the most egregious mistake and the most calamitous moral crisis ever injected into our civilization.  His madness has become our madness. His insanity proves our insanity.

 

Why? Because we let Bush continue without a whimper!  No outcries!  No mass demonstrations!  No marches!  Thomas Jefferson said, “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”  We failed our founding fathers!

This war is a crock.

The ‘surge’ will prove yet another façade of blundering leaders.  General Patraeus obfuscated, denied and misled as directed by George Bush. We send our kids over there to referee an unending civil war. 

 

The same thing happened in Vietnam.  Westmoreland told the American public another 100,000 troops would defeat the Viet Cong.  Then, another 100,000 would assure success!  By the time we got 58,000 kids killed and 350,000 wounded, we forced 550,000 troops into steaming jungles of Vietnam at one point in that war.  We killed three million Vietnamese citizens.  We poisoned their rivers and jungles with Agent Orange. We dropped millions of pounds of bombs and wreaked havoc on their children for generations to come.  Vietnam created our own drug culture that exploded during and after the war to the magnitude it is today.  We perpetrated 10 years of insanity on the people of Vietnam and the world over the outright fraud of the “Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.”

 

The same fraud perpetrated on the U.S. public and Iraq arrived in the form of George Bush telling the world that Saddam Hussein possessed “Weapons of Mass Destruction.”  The U.N. inspectors proved Bush wrong.  They could still be checking for WMD if not for Bush.  If Bush allowed them to keep checking, thousands of lives and billions of dollars would be saved while moving humanity toward a more positive future.

History shows Bush as the first U.S. president to attack a sovereign nation without cause and against international law.  Not only that, Iraq exists 10,000 miles away from the United States.  How much more insane could his twisted mind be? 

 

What are the results of six years of war? Bush destroyed Iraq’s infrastructure.  He created three million refugees.  He injected depleted uranium radiation into their country that will create mutations and birth defects for all living creatures for uncounted years to come.  He’s fomented a civil war where stability once existed under Saddam.  He injected our form of government into a country whose Sharia Law worked for them for 1,600 years.  He created more terrorists with greater anger and vehemence against the United States.  He created an $800 billion debt for U.S. taxpayers.  While pretending to combat terror over there, he invites terrorists to enter over here.  He leaves our southern border open to a greater invasion of terrorists packing unknown explosives.  He allows millions of Mexican illegals with their only weapons the shoes on their feet that enable them to walk across our borders.
