A Place for All Conservatives to Speak Their Mind.
President Bush himself famously made fun of the fact that no WMD that was a threat to the United States was ever found. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knew Saddam had no WMD because presumably, Bush would have bombed any locations where materials would have been secreted. Why would you yammer on and on about WMD, knowing the dictator had a year to unload the stuff. The whole exercise was preposterous. The UN inspectors looked and looked and couldn't find anything. Before they could offer their final opinion that nothing existed, Bush prematurely pulled the trigger and launched the war that opened Pandoras Box in the Middle East. I won't even go into Bush's blatant lie in his SOTU regarding Saddam supposedly buying yellowcake in Africa. There's so much there to indict the Bush admin that it would take a multi volume book to cover it all. Thank you Mr. Trump, you are easily the most politically brave man to run for president in my lifetime.
Regarding 9-11, once again, another Bush's fingerprints are all over that disaster. The seeds of 9-11 were planted in the first Bush admin when Bush 41 saved Saudi Arabia from Saddam's 400,000 man army, by dropping the 82nd Airborne into northern Saudi Arabia. That was the tripwire which blocked an Iraqi attack. The rest is history, the US invaded and returned Kuwait to her authoritarian monarchy. Also invaded Iraq, defeated Saddam's forces and established no fly zones after inadvertently allowing an Iraqi massacre of Kurds. But what would have happened if we had followed an old and traditional American foreign policy and stayed out of it? There would have never been a 9-11. The Iraqi Army would have crushed the extremist Saudis, by killing their regular soldiers and irregular jihadis for many years. There never would have been US bases in Arabia and so not only would there have been no backlash by jihadis, to launch a WTC attack, they would have been killed or fighting for their lives against the secular Iraqis. Yes folks, the Bushes are responsible for 9-11 and Iraq and their poor and foolish leadership has cost us trillions and many thousands of soldiers and civilians lives. Hopefully Jeb will quit soon and we can heal the wounds inflicted by terrible leadership.
Excellent analysis and remarks from cimbri.
