Mission Accomplished?

. . . .more like “Mission:Impossible,” but the various members of the Bush Crime Family turned a deaf ear to the protests of those who predicted this kind of disaster in Iraq should the US proceed with a pointless invasion. And what was the mission again? The find WMDs? To free the Iraqi people from an evil dictator (that we backed)? To stabilize the region and make it safe from al Qaeda? Gee, not working out too well, is it? What a hideous mess. What a terrible sham to play on the American people. A trillion dollars later, and thousands of dead and maimed US soldiers, and ten times (or more) that number of butchered Iraqis – what mission has been accomplished?
How many times did Raisin Brain say the word “victory” in regard to Iraq, but when pressed, he admitted that there was, literally, no way to “win” a war on terror. The best plan became to train the Iraqi military to defend itself after US forces left . . .if they left. And there’s the rub. Once we invaded Iraq and killed Saddam, the ensuing carnage and chaos was inevitable. The only question that remained was how many US troops would stay after the “official” troop withdrawal. But a reasonable “status of forces” agreement could not be reached with Nouri al-Maliki, the new quasi-dictator we installed following Saddam, so there was little choice but to withdraw all the troops (which should not have been deployed there in the first place) and wait for the newly-reinvigorated al Quada forces to swoop into place.
Enter the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a Sunni extremist group that is happy to exploit the violent situation the Bush Crime Family created and begin a fresh round of slaughter of innocents. Iraqi “troops,” which were never successfully trained, are abandoning their uniforms and their posts and are running from the onslaught. (Those, that is, who are not being executed and dumped into mass graves.) Who can blame them. They never asked for any of this nightmare.
Meanwhile, Neocons at home and abroad are scrambling to achieve their trifecta: a) blame Obama, b) justify their 2003 invasion, and c) disavow any suggestion that the current crisis might be somehow, somewhat, perhaps, slightly, their responsibility. Lindsay Graham went as far as to suggest that if a repeat of 9-11 occurs, it will be Obama’s fault for the troop withdrawal (which was according ro Dim Son’s timeline, but I digress).

Across the pond, Tony Blair, the infamous UK Prime Minister who earned the nickname “Bush’s Poodle” for his eagerness to rollover at every bloodthirsty Bush Crime Family command, has posted an odd, rambling statement on his website, urging his followers to point the blame elsewhere for the Iraqi disaster, as The BBC reports:

Mr Blair said the idea that Iraq would be stable if the UK and US had not intervened “just isn’t true” and that the current crisis involved the wider region as a whole.

In an essay on his website, he said the violence in Iraq was the “predictable and malign effect” of inaction in Syria. But Michael Stephens, from the Royal United Services Institute, insisted the Iraq War had a part to play in the recent upsurge in violence.

“I think Mr Blair is washing his hands of responsibility,” he said. “But at the same time, I do agree with him that we can’t just ignore this. “We do have some kind of role to play in terms of trying to make sure that both Iraq and Syria do not fragment and just move on into sort of unending violence.”

Sir Christopher Meyer, Britain’s ambassador to the US from 1997 to 2003, said the handling of the campaign against Saddam Hussein was “perhaps the most significant reason” for the current sectarian violence. “We are reaping what we sowed in 2003. This is not hindsight. We knew in the run-up to war that the overthrow of Saddam Hussein would seriously destabilise Iraq after 24 years of his iron rule.”

It does seems ludicrous that the US (with help from the so-called “coalition of the willing”) could unleash a decade of shock and awful and then refuse any responsibility for the aftermath. Kind of like driving your Hummer over you’re neighbor’s vegetable garden, repeatedly, for a week or so, then saying the damage didn’t matter because the rabbits were going to eat it all anyway.
Or something like that.

    I propose that all truthseekers support a march on Washington to demand that Dimson Bush, Dick (I hope they can get his crypt open) Cheney, Donald (you’ll find the WMD’s east, north, south & west)Rumsfeld, and all the rest of their criminal buddies, be outfitted in full battle regalia to meet the advancing ISIS jihadists in Iraq. They are the ones responsible for the debacle,and should finally be held accountable for their actions. Then again, this is probably the same bunch that’s providing these fighters with their guns and ammo. War is a racket.

    You guys with me, huh!

  2. Denny NNWofLA

    Nice thought, Greg, about arming the hawks, but this would
    happen: W soils himself, Cheney, growling, shoots Bush and
    Rumsfeld says, “That’s the best he could do with the weapon
    he had.” Terrorists win! (We do Too!)

    Where you been? I thought we had lost you.

    Thanks Denny, funny comment. I’m alive & well, still listening to Mike & reading Kathy’s blog. Just nothing new to say about this ‘armed madhouse’ we are all sharing. Trying to use the Ohio Springtime for healthier endeavours, that’s all. Good to hear from ya’!

    Glad you liked my post of the George Will column from 2 years ago about improvements in quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities formerly known as mental retardation.

    https://www.mikemalloy.com/2014/06/washington-post-goddam/

    People have trouble adapting their views to new information out of fear of a ‘personal existential crisis’ that ‘if one thing I thought I knew was wrong then what else do I think I know is wrong.’ Most people refuse to examine their views and ‘set personal boundaries’ not to talk about ‘certain subjects’ like ‘religion or politics’ to protect themselves.

    Here’s another of George Will’s columns from 2000 where he divides maintaining school discipline and teaching students to act with good morals that could improve school discipline from more federal funding (the IDEA Act) for schools specifically for education for students with disabilities like George Will’s son. He creates the divide to support W Bush 2000 campaign. The IDEA Act promised a 40% federal cost share to special education programs but as of 2002, has never been higher than about 15-20%. The objections to ACA medicaid expansion by Rethuglican governors that has a net 10% increase in state medicaid costs after 3 years is probably rooted in the old state Rethuglican whine of ‘unfunded federal mandates’ on state spending if any federal assistance is taken. Tax cuts for the rich and corporations and military spending on anything but the VA budget divert the spending. IDEA funding probably helped George Will’s son unless he went to a private school.

    Hey! I know boys and girls! Let’s go back into Iraq! Let’s have MORE american men and women get killed or injured! Let’s get MORE Iraqi civilians slaughtered! What a great idea! NOT! We need to stay the fuck out of Iraq! The Shias and Sunnis hate each other and have been fighting each other for centuries! Why the fuck does the republicans/teabaggers want to get back into that cesspool?! When all of those motherfuckers sign up, put on a military uniform, pick up a gun and get their chickenshit asses over there, THEN the rest of the military will follow! But you know THAT will never happen. :(

Speak The Truth!
