If I hear one more time "We need to deal with the situation before us" whenever it is raised that
going into Iraq was based on a lie and created the disaster before us - whenever it is raised that there were no WMDs, that there were no Al Queda in Iraq, that Iraq was not tied to Al Queda and not responsible for 911 - I want to bang my head against the wall.

I can just picture those on the right, sticking their fingers in their ears, and yelling "I can't hear you....".

Why don't people get it?

We MUST learn from our past.
We just can't go blindly forward.
We can't succeed if those who led us to failure are still in power.
Those with a track record of failure can only fail going forward.

Are we that much smarter than these people? Or is it just the useless fog of politics? Is it more about support of the party, towing the party line, and not at all about our citizens or our troops?

These people care about nothing except for themselves, their power, their positions.

1. Reminds me of a quote
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

2. You are correct but there is something this Administration
and the Rethuglicans don't want to talk about...


The Democratic Congress is going to have to get the backbone to talk about it...Many of the Insurgents are Saudi's and most of the criminals that attacked us on 9/11 were Saudi's.....

Pakistan is letting the Taliban and Alqueda mass just inside their border...

You are right we must learn from our past but when you have an administration that does not believe in history but believe in making reality fit with their view....we end up in a shit storm like we are now.

TREASON.....Impeach the bastards....and prosecute them.
