Iraq Study Group: “We’re Screwed”

December 6, 2006

Now that Daddy Bush’s big boy friends in the Iraq Study Group have stepped in to assert some parental authority over George the Lesser’s colossal failure in the Middle East, one has to wonder: Why didn’t one of these adults sit George down on their knee BEFORE the war, and explain the following risks, which appear in the Report?

The Report says: “If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences could be severe. A slide toward chaos could trigger the collapse of Iraq’s government and a humanitarian catastrophe. Neighboring countries could intervene. Sunni-Shia clashes could spread. Al Qaeda could win a propaganda victory and expand its base of operations. The global standing of the United States could be diminished. Americans could become more polarized.”

[Postscript: I thought I might clarify this post. After a couple of days of reflection, it seems to me that none of these “adults” said anything to stop the war before it started because they fully supported the criminal invasion and occupation of Iraq. The only reason they are speaking now is because America’s imperial army has been ground to a halt in a foreign land and there is nothing they can do about it.

The bottom line is that “we” have already lost the war and each of the risks listed above happened long ago. If Bush cannot see this, then Congress needs to reassert its authority and cut off funding for the occupation. It would be nice to see key members of the Bush regime tried for their crimes, but that will happen shortly after hell freezes over.]

    These “adults” did not say a word when Dubya planned his invasion of Iraq because these are the same guys that tried to convince Bush the elder to invade Iraq the first time around, but men like military men Powell and Schwarzkopf prevailed over these farts. Too bad that this time around similar type of military men were not on the Joint Chiefs.
