76. And why did Bush and Rumsfeld do what they did
in Iraq? Yes, it's incomprehensible to rational people. Yet that's exactly what hardliners do. They make up their own facts and prop them up with propaganda (no pun intended). You can't reason with them, and can't expect them to behave in a reasonable manner. That's why they are such a danger to all of us.
