Good Morning Bloggers - The Raw Story is reporting this morning about an interview George - I'll never forgive the dumbass - Bush gave to a Japanese television network where he reportedly said that the Iraq war "was a success" and the he is "very pleased" with what is happening there.
Aside from his usual Saddam Hussein was a threat crap, Bush said that "people have been able to take their troops out of Iraq because Iraq is becoming successful. I'm very pleased with what is taking place there now."
I don't know about you guys, but I've shocked by the lack of Iraq coverage in this country. I watch the BBC News, and it has at least one story a day on the war and most of it is pretty bad. The lack of coverage in this country borders on the criminal. The American people are fed a bunch of lies that Iraq is doing just fine. We don't even get to see the frequent protests where THOUSANDS of Iraqis burn Bush in effigy and march for us to LEAVE THEIR COUNTRY!
The truth is much more complicated. THERE IS STILL PLENTY OF VIOLENCE! It's just happening between the Iraqis more, as they become more capable of killing each other. In general, based on all those reports I watch and read, is that the government of Iraq is refusing to hire the same Sunni forces that we've been paying, which means that after we withdraw there will probably be a civil war.
The other problems involve the Mahdi [sic] army, which is holding its cease fire until we leave. Nobody knows what will happen after we go. There are still suicide bombs every week killing dozens, warring factions targeting each other, Kurds interested in forming a new nation, and ex-Saddam loyalists who seek to reestablish a Sunni-led government.
They will all fight each other the minute we exit. What George - the war criminal Bush - isn't telling you is that there is no good solution. He's just trying to make it look like it's working. Obama is planning to pull us out because there are no other solutions, and George Bush and the Republican "truth squad" will try to make him look like the screw-up when that happens.
The whole thing is a bloody mess, and George - the lying sack - Bush is getting away with it. This is a MUCH BIGGER PROBLEM for us Democrats than it is for the Republicans. The Republicans have done a great job making Iraq look okay. Once the real news gets out, and we start pulling troops out, we will be taking the blame for a worsening situation - that WAS ALWAYS MESSED UP!
Why don't people seek out the truth? Why don't more people watch the real news, like the BBC News? Why don't more people read actual newspapers? WHY DON'T PEOPLE CARE MORE?
Oh well, that's enough yelling and ranting for one Monday morning. I blame you George Bush for being the evil fool that you are. A recent Wall Street Journal op-ed said that we, the American people, mistreat you. Really? I think you've gotten away with MURDER, especially since you are a psychotic murderer who feels nothing for the lives that you've destroyed.
I think you should be in jail. You are the WORST! I blame you and the Republicans who support you for driving this nation to the brink of oblivion - IRAQ was a big part of that trip. You're nothing more than a low-life, psychotic murderer. You sir slept while Rome burned. One day you will be forced to see the damage that you caused, learn about the lives that you destroyed, and hopefully pay the ultimate price for your crimes.
