A response to Bob Scheiffer
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 12:01 PM by Chimpys_Last_Stand
Yes absolutely, Bob.

America can righteously wear a t-shirt which reads: "We invaded a country which did not have any weapons of mass destruction, was not responsible for 9/11, killed several hundred thousand innocent civilians, triggered a sectarian civil war, and ultimately tried to bring them democracy at gunpoint....and all we got was this lousy t-shirt".

Those Iraqis. What a bunch of ingrates.

If, Bob, you're going to 'throw in the towel' on this war, then do so because of the TANG-deserting, 5 deferrment-getting, drum beating chickenhawk oil mobsters in the White House who invented the pretext for it, and then carried it out to such predictably disastrous and tragic results.

And 'good intentions'? Are you serious, Bob? Good intentions? You try to help a guy, huh? And this is the thanks you get, huh?

Yes Bob, the motivations for invading Iraq were philanthropic, weren't they? Entirely philanthropic. Hey, we tried to help 'you people', but...

Get some guts Bob. Call up Poppy and tell him you're out of the foursome this Sunday. And from now on. Then, tell his ne'er, e'er-do-well son that this is his war. It's perhaps the only thing he can truly say he has ever owned outright in his entire life. Well, perhaps he's a co-owner along with Uncle Dick. Tell him it's what happens when you look at a square peg, then look at a round hole, and then decide you are going to fit the two together even if it kills you. Well, maybe not you, but you get the idea.

This war is one hundred percent the responsibility of George W. Bush and his misadministration.

Bob, you're calling out the wrong guy.

2. Great post. And I wonder why it took BS so long to throw in
the towel.

9. Now tell us how you REALLY feel.
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 12:09 PM by stellanoir
Every day and with every insensitively sadistic blunder, I'm increasingly convinced that the intention was really to depopulate the region and steal the resources from the get go.

K & R'd

ps-you could probably make a small fortune off those T shirts. Maybe put the "and all I got was. . ." line on the back side.

11. Depopulating the place and stealing the resources
It sure worked in New Orleans. Now, if only they can cause the big quake in the SF bay area, they can have that valuable real estate, too.

16. Exactly...
...and maybe underneath the "all I got" line, there could be a line of unflattering head shot pictures of Chimpy, Dick, Rummy, Wolfy, Condi, Powell...in various stages of facial frown or displeasure. ;(

Heck...I might buy one of those tees myself! B-)

Well done.

Sadly, a few dems even catapult that egregious propaganda. Sickening on every level. :puke:

20. K*R My sentiments exactly. What an arrogant guy he is. K*R

Oh, they're not grateful enough. Thanks but no thanks Bob. You and your media crew got the
war going, kept it going, keep it going, and facilitate an expansion to Iran. You and MSM have
not served the American people, you have undermined our ability to see the true picture.

Thanks for your sentiments no reflect some more Bob, and then apologize!
