This Mother Goose & Grimm comic strip came to mind (re: Hubris)



Remember this? This used to hang in the office of the company I worked for at the time of the invasion. Oh ho ho so funny. One of the more unfunny strips ever got a chance to poke fun at the incompetent Hans Blix who couldn't find the WMD's right in front of him in Iraq.

It bothered me walking past it every day. Eventually, as the war dragged on and no WMD's were found someone finally had the sense to take the strip down.

Oh ho ho, so many dead soldiers and civilians later but Blix was a rube. And the French were assholes so we're renaming our fries.

2. That still makes me nauseous with rage

Wasn't that before the 2004 election too?

3. The bitterness has all come back hasn't it?

Suddenly I'm also having all those memories of what it was like on a daily basis during the Bush administration. The accusations of being terrorist sympathizers. The invitations to leave the US because you were being unpatriotic.

There was a time when you put yourself in danger for speaking out. It was better to shut up and lay low. Those were the days when DU was a sanity oasis in a world gone mad.

4. "Saddam lover"

I know exactly what you mean. It was not a good time.

I just had a conversation with my conservative coworker about this (about 30 minutes ago). I just assume that everyone now realizes the truth of what happened. He said, "we'll never know whether Iraq had wmd's or not"

Just clinging I guess.

And then we were off and running. "You can't say for certain that Iraq wasn't behind 9-11" "Iraq harbors terrorists" "I don't trust any of those Islam countries"

But it's better now than 10 years ago.
