Ten years ago today, President George W. Bush commenced the U.S. invasion of Iraq, to “disarm” the country, “free its people,” and transform it into a “united, stable and free country,” all the while knowing that his sole basis for justifying the war (that Iraq had WMD) was a complete and total lie. It seems quite appropriate that the Iraqis celebrated this anniversary today with a dozen car bombs that killed 50 people. Yea, Freedom!
In other news, it is estimated that the Iraq War cost the U.S. $6 trillion. With a T. Thus, the Iraq War is solely responsible for any “debt crisis” we are in today. I would love to enact a one time levy to collect that 6 Trillion from all Republicans living today. But I realize that is probably impractical and unconstitutional. So at the very least, Republicans should shut up for all time about our “spending problem” and our “debt crisis” when it was their lies about WMD and the need for a war in Iraq that caused everything they complain about today. Seriously, I would like their months duct-taped shut with the words “Iraq War supporter” on the front of the tape. Hell, a Scarlett Letter branded on their forehead would work just a well too. So that when they speak, we will know instantly that they are hypocritical liars when we look at them.
