33. Hard to argue that so I will enthusiastically agree instead.

I got a fuck for the way too many across the board that in that like 90% when it was nitty gritty time because this was one of the dumbest things to do ever and no excuses either from the mealy mouth brigade, this went against like 70 years of bipartisan foreign policy.

I don't believe the elders were happy at all because as wicked as they are they do see moves ahead and know such an action introduces too many variables to allow even them to get and maintain a hold on the whole middle east.

Iraq was under a long duration air cap and embargo, whatever it's intents it was in an almost uniquely special position of having precious little ability to pose a threat to the US.

What do you think the real extent of military and CIA surveillance capabilities even a decade or so back? Shieeeeet, this might be the most hemmed in a country has ever been and they were sold as a threat?

And all the putrid gnashing of teeth about all of his own people Saddam had murdered (certainly true, ignoring the fucked up nation building gone wrong stuff that makes own dicey) because Charles Schultz and Rumsfeld went during and after some of the worst and tickled his taint and went just shy of calling him a saint.

The putrid part, I hope you understand is the same crew used a lot of what they totally sold as a reason to motivate for a war when it suited them and killed up all kinds of poor people and set off untold destruction that we might be getting started on because we have made one epic mess and bombing some more folks to prop up Bush's jacked up puppet that won't puppet isn't not going to fix or help shit.

If we are not very fucking careful we are likely to now set off a whole sect and escalate and inflame the whole mess regionally not just immediately but sewing seeds of discord to reap later as well.

Hell, here we are again poking with no known objectives and almost everyone will at least go along and suck it up, like it or not.
