The picture of the three who got us into the quagmire of Iraq! War criminals if ever there were any! Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld all should be held accountable for crimes against humanity! That is my opinion and has been since the beginning of the Iraq war 5 years ago. Time has proven me correct! Time has proven all those who opposed the war correct!
This weekend, Mickey Edwards, a Congressman from 1977 to 1993, wrote, "For at least six years, as I've become increasingly frustrated by the Bush administration's repeated betrayal of constitutional — and conservative — principles, I have defended Vice President Cheney, a man I've known for decades and with whom I served and made common cause in Congress. No longer." Edwards cites Cheney's recent interview with ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz. When Raddatz reminded Cheney of America's overwhelming dislike for the war, Cheney's response was, "So?" Oh the arrogance! Isn't government "For the People, by the People"? Guess not in the Bush Administration.
Over the weekend I watched a television show documenting the rationale for war with Iraq. Rumsfeld insisted without a shadow of a doubt that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. It wasn't that Iraq may have weapons of mass destruction, but they did, and the US knew where they were. Five years later, how wrong Rumsfeld was.
And Bush! He insists to this day that we are making progress in Iraq. Last week, when the Iraq government began its new offensive against rebel forces, we were again told it is a defining point for Iraq. How many defining points have there been?
Lies, lies, lies! All lies and distortions! And many bought it! Many didn't but today we can see where it has gotten the US. It has totally ruined us. Not only 4,000 dead, but look at our economy. Any relationship to Iraq? I would say so. This war, started by Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld has led the US down a spiralling hole. I only hope Bush's successor can get us out of it.
