10 years ago this week war criminals Bush,Cheney and Rumsfeld destroyed America’s trust in itself as they lied the country into a worst case military scenario.
The uniformed masses went along with the jingoism, the juvenile “mushroom cloud” fear tactics, the blatant lies and the statements that we would be greeted as “liberators!”
I remember sitting with my jaw open as bombs were being dropped on Baghdad for the first time and thinking civilians MUST BE DYING!..what are we doing?
The flags flying from the cars…the stickers “Support our Troops” ..
“In God we Trust”…’God Bless America”… we were going to a sham war with patriotic stickers manufactured in China. If you opened your mouth in those heady days to cry foul you were UN-American!
THE REAL UN-AMERICANS WERE THE WAR CRIMINALS WHO WERE BETRAYING THE TRUST AND THE FINANCIAL SECURITY OF THE NATION.
These bastards are still walking around free ..in fact FOX news is pleased to allow the inhuman dregs of a mass murderer Dick Cheney a chance pontificate his vile philosophies..as if a lying old grifter oil man has any further stature other than that of a dung beetle.
The mass killing of civilians, the killing and maiming of the troops, and the final installing of a pro Iranian Iraqi government is the legacy these pigs have left us…and of course the destruction of the economy…which their REPUBLICAN Congressional heirs seem hell-bent on continuing to do….
That any GOP standard-bearer today who would still not condemn the Iraq invasion is beyond any bubble of belief…but there they all are with no apology and seemingly no remorse…Mitt Romney even today seems to condone the invasion. What does this mean if another REPUBLICAN becomes President.. Rachel Maddow said it last night …heaven help us if they haven’t learned what they did.
