Response to Me. (Original post)

12. I am struck by the parallels between our invasion if Iraq and Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

The Bush administration trumped up fake charges of WMD danger to justify bombing the hell out of Baghdad and other Iraqi cities, killing untold civilians. American conservatives refused to believe statistics about civilian deaths and backed the war 100%. I don't doubt Putin modeled the propaganda about his war on the US propaganda of the Iraq war. I know there are significant differences. Zelensky is a hero - Sadaam Hussein was a brutal dictator. But I, for one, don't mind saying "hey, we did this in Iraq and we know it was wrong."
