65. I think your support is far more justifiable than mine.
Edited on Thu Jun-08-06 03:20 PM by bunkerbuster1
If I'd been over there, I could understand the frustration of having the bad guys (or what we've been led to believe were bad guys--I'm not even so sure of that any more) on the run and then just letting them slip away.

But damn--W's father has written eloquently on why this was a dumb idea, that our mission had to be limited, and of course it was the right thing to do in retrospect.

Ok, actually, the right thing to have done would have been to have clearly told Saddam that we wouldn't tolerate an invasion of Kuwait when we knew he was considering that, instead of rat-fucking him like we appear to have done.

But anyway, I just wanted to say I do understand, especially the part about trusting in the same goddamned media that abetted those sick thugs in their theft of the 2000 election. Shame on me.
