Congressional Democrats Running From President Obama’s Economic Success Should Remember Al Gore Doing The Same To Bill Clinton, That Gave Us George W Bush. “It’s The Economy Stupid!”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2014 by sheriffali

Spineless Congressional Democrats Distancing Themselves From President Obama That Forbes Magazine And Rolling Stone Calls – Best Economic President And Historic Success; Should Remember Al Gore When He Distanced Himself From Bill Clinton That Gave Us George W Bush.


Look at the Facts on January 20, 2009 and the Facts Today:


[January 2009 Dow 7,949 Today 17,000 Plus; S & P 805 Today 1,992; -5.3% GDP Today +4.2%; 7.8% Unemployment Today 5.9%; 9.8% Deficit % of GDP Today 2.9%; 37.7% Consumer Confidence Today 92.4%; Housing Market Crashed Today Housing Market Rebounded.]


In 2010 Republicans and the Tea Party ran on how bad the economy was despite it was George W Bush and the Republican Party that literally crashed and burned America and, they also ran on Obamacare that they called a “Train-Wreck.” Do you hear any complaints by the Republicans or the Tea Party about the Economy or Obamacare, of course not, because the American people aren’t fools, they know the difference.


Bush and Cheney badly managed Afghanistan War for which they bifurcated to commit the Illegal Invasion of Iraq that turned everything into a living Hell; they are the Creators of ISIS and all of the other Lunatic Terrorists. Sooner rather than later the consequences of Bush and Cheney’s Illegal War with Iraq was going to come back to haunt us and what you see today, “is the result of the vacuum Bush and Cheney created when they knocked over Saddam Hussein and fired the entire Iraqi Army.” The ISIS you see today is factually, Saddam Hussein’s Most Elite Force, The Republican Guards. They were the best trained; best paid; most loyal to the Sunni Dictator and the only thing they knew was to protect Iraq from outside forces which included Terrorist Organization.


Obama not being capricious with the lives of our Troops has the better sense and judgment to know if you put American Troops in the middle of Sectarian, Civil and Religious Wars that are ongoing between the Sunnis and the Shiites, thousands more Americans would die on top of the thousands that have already died from Bush and Cheney’s internecine Polices.


Dr. Martin Luther King was right when he said; “If you do not stand for something you would fall for anything.” Little did I know his words are what you see in the Democratic Party today with the outlandish disrespect by Democrats for President Obama!


Republicans using the Fear Tactic just like Bush and Cheney did in 2004, and Democrats rather stand like men and women and confront these criminals, Congressional Democrats are hiding like Rats because the lying Republican Tom and Pussy Cats have scared the hell out of Democrats that are most interested in keeping their jobs, rather than standing up for what is right.


If we lose the Senate in November much blame would be on the uninformed, ignorant, brainwashed Voters, but, Congressional Democrats would have to equally share the consequences.

Caiaphas Panetta, Sold Out Obama For Much More Than Judas’ 30 Pieces Of Silver To Pontius Pilate O’Reilly, At Fox News in order for Caesar Murdoch to embellish in American Blood!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2014 by sheriffali

Leon Panetta, the Republican in Democratic Clothing that was Appointed CIA Director and Defense Secretary by President Obama, shows stunning “disloyalty,” in the most deplorable manner. Anyone who thinks Panetta is a Democrat should think again. We are less than 30 days away from the Mid Term Elections and Panetta is all over the Television, especially Fox with none other than Bill O’Reilly, slamming the man that gave Panetta the highest appointments he has had in his life.


This advocating from Republicans and people like Leon Panetta and others that President Obama should send in ground troops, didn’t they learn anything from Bush and Cheney’s abuse of our Military. To many, the Soldiers are disposable tools as a means to satisfy the egos of the Politicians that sit behind a desk playing Soldiers. Just like George W Bush in his GI JOE garb landing on the Abraham Lincoln claiming “Mission Accomplish.”


Bush’s Iraq Invasion: 4,500 killed; 50,232 wounded; 75,000 with mental problems committing suicide at the rate of 30 per day; 1.7 trillion spent and for what! All we did was replaced a Sunni Dictator Saddam Hussein with a Shiite Dictator Nour al-Maliki who turned against America because of his allegiance to Iran. “What fools we have become!”


I am happy that President Obama is not capricious with the lives of our Soldiers and that he has not re-invaded Iraq. We are going to be causing the deaths of many more Soldiers if we send them in the middle of these lunatics Civil and Religious Wars. We can’t bomb and kill our way to bring them to sanity and the people who don’t understand that, they have no business committing other people children, husbands, wives, mother and fathers into a no win situation.

Saddam Hussein’s Elite Force “The Republican Guards,” Is ISIS!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 6, 2014 by sheriffali

When Bush And Cheney Blindly Invaded Iraq And Toppled Saddam Hussein, They Fired Hussein’s Entire Army Including Iraq’s Highly Trained Republican Guards And The Fiasco You See Today, Is The Result Of The Bush Administration Illegal Invasion Of Iraq, And Bad Decisions By The Right Wing Neocons, RWNJ!


George W Bush, Dick Cheney and his Band of Right-Wing-Nutt-Jobs, Republican Neocons; their unintelligent, ignorant, arrogant phantasmagoric rationales and internecine Policies, have and will continue to haunt us for years to come.


Immediately after toppling Saddam Hussein the Neocons lead by Paul Bremer, Bush appointed Administrator/Envoy, fired the hundreds of thousands of Iraq’s Military in 2003, including Iraq’s best fighting force, Hussein’s Republican Guards. Did the Bush Administration have a functioning brain within their decision making? Did they think that hundreds of thousands of Troops with no other jobs but Military would just somehow vanish into thin air?


The Republican Guards knows the lay of the Iraq Land better than anyone in the world and unless we remained in Iraq as a permanent Occupier, Iraq’s Elite Force was going to wait their turn to take revenge and they certainly have in the Form Of ISIS. The lighting speed for which they have and continue to seize territory inside Iraq is no mystery. After all, Saddam Hussein ruled Iraq from 1979 until he was captured in December 2003. For 24 years the Republican Guards received tremendous benefits from Hussein and their only job was to protect Saddam from any uprising within Iraq for which they lived a very comfortable life.  


This is not a defense of Saddam Hussein but to his credit when he Governed Iraq there was no Terrorist Groups of any kind inside of Iraq. In addition Hussein kept Iran in check because he fought a land war with Iran from 1980 to 1988 and Hussein was the Victor.


President Obama and his Military Advisors are correct in their thinking and that is, Military Action can only delay consequences but it is no apothecary for a long term solution. For any sanity to prevail in Iraq, the Iraqis are going to have to come to a balanced Political solution, whereby, all Iraqis would have a vested interest in their country and in so doing, they wouldn’t only expel the perpetrators, ISIS, Al Qaeda and the likes, they would keep them out from returning.


This is an article Paul Bremer wrote in the Wall Street Journal earlier this year;


 Bremer penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal under the headline “Only America Can Prevent a Disaster in Iraq,” in which he argued for some form of U.S. troops on the ground there. After 4,490 American lives lost and $1.7 trillion spent, Erin Burnett asked him, “How can you advocate any more people, any more lives going to risk for that country?”



“Because it’s in our interest,” Bremer responded matter-of-factly, going to elaborate that the U.S. cannot allow Iraq to become a home base for terrorists like those that constitute the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.


Taking on the role of the skeptical viewers, Burnett asked Bremer, “Aren’t you the one who got us into this mess?” She confronted Bremer with video from 2003 of him heralding Iraq’s “hopeful” future after the fall of Saddam Hussein.


Bremer defended his words and the actions the Bush administration took to bring democracy to Iraq, instead blaming the Obama administration for presiding over the deterioration of those gains over the last few years.


“We won don’t you know. And if we’d just ignored the status of forces agreement and said we were going to stay there forever whether the Iraqis wanted us there or not, we could have proven it. These guys need to go slither back into the holes they crawled out of.”


The people that have advocated that United States Military remain permanently in Iraq, do you see, can you find, their sons and daughters being part of that occupation. As a matter of fact, the instigators of re-invading Iraq, 97% of them are “Draft Dodgers.”

Dick Cheney War Crimes Felon should be in Prison and not allowed on Television as an expert on Iraq!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2014 by sheriffali

George W Bush, Dick Cheney and their Myrmidons are responsible for the chaos in Iraq and the Terrorist Groups that are operating inside of Iraq. Prior to Bush and Cheney’s Oil Invasion of Iraq, there weren’t any terrorists groups in Iraq. Apart from the illegal invasion Bush and Cheney fired the entire Iraqi Army which included Saddam Hussein’s Elite Republican Guards, and those are the same people that comprise of the brutal terrorists group, ISIS.


What we are witnessing at the present time is the result of Bush and Cheney toppling Saddam Hussein, a Sunni and replacing him with Nour al-Maliki, a Shiite. At the cost of 4,500 American lives; 50,000 plus severely wounded; tens of thousands with serious mental problem; 1.7 trillion dollars spent and 100,000 plus non-combatant Iraqis killed, all that came out of Bush and Cheney’s egregiousness is that we replaced a Sunni Dictator with a Shiite Dictator. Mr. Maliki, the Prime Minister Bush and Cheney installed, even when he lost the first election he refused to step down. Had President Obama move to help Iraq with Nour al-Maliki still being Prime Minister, he would have never resigned. It is easy to make a mess of things such as in the case of Bush and Cheney, but, it is another story cleaning up someone else’s garbage.


Irrespective of the naysayers about Obama’s Policies, Iraq does have a new Government and with their cooperation, perhaps, just perhaps, with our assistance from the Air and the Iraqis on the ground, we may be able to turn around the chaos that presently exist. We have already seen tremendous results from the Air-Strikes we have provided. Some in the News Media, especially Fox Misnomer News are siding with the War Crimes Criminal just to pounce on Obama.


Dick Cheney, the Criminal that made 39.5 Billion Dollars from the Iraqi Oil Invasion gave a speech earlier today, literally criticizing and condemning Obama’s foreign Policy on Iraq and ISIS.


This man that used and abused American Soldiers in the name of “Oil,” should be in Prison and not on Television giving speeches and not allotted air-time by the capricious Media.

President Obama didn’t wreck America, Obama saved America!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2014 by sheriffali

Obama is blamed for all that ails America, but, factually, Bush and Cheney recklessness that literally raped the country of precious lives lost in Iraq; tens of thousands wounded; 5.1 trillion for the two wars added to the debt; 1.1 trillion tax cuts for the rich; lack of regulations that wrecked the housing market; millions of jobs lost; the Stock Market plunged to its lowest level; 1,000 plus banks closed down and the loss of America’s goodwill worldwide; manifested itself into the United States Disaster.



President Obama has been in Office 5 years and 6 months and since that time 10 million jobs were created; the housing market rebounded; the Stock Market that is the symbol of America’s financial strength excelled; The Dow went from 7,200 to 17,000; The NASDAQ went from below 2,000 to 4,800; and the S & P that house most of the 401K plans went from 730 to over 2,000. No banks are closing down and disappearing with depositors funds; Wall Street is regulated to some degree despite Republicans opposition and according to Economists and the Wall Street Journal, under Obama spending stands at 1 ¼%, the lowest than any previous President.



Obama ended the War in Iraq but the Oil Invasion in 2003 by Bush and Cheney was always going to end up being a House of Cards. Osama bin Laden, the man that brought so much grief and destruction to America was not taken out by Bush and Cheney despite their braggadocios for the 7 years and 3 months they ran the country subsequent to September 11, 2001 disaster. Bin Laden’s death came about by one of the most risky Military Operations in modern times by our well trained men and women in Uniform, under the direction of President Obama.



Afghanistan, which was a justified War with the world supporting us, Bush and Cheney bifurcated that War to go  on their Oil Invasion of Iraq, hence the reason, 13 years later, we are still in Afghanistan.



The escalation of the number of terrorists worldwide including ISIS and Al Qaeda in Iraq is the result of Bush and Cheney toppling Saddam Hussein. As bad as we may have viewed Saddam Hussein, while under his rule he was a terror to the Iraqis, but what is more than certain, he didn’t allow terrorists to operate inside of Iraq. George W Bush’s father in 1991 could have taken out Saddam Hussein but he didn’t, and the reason is Saddam Hussein was no religious fanatic, he ran a secular Government.



So now it is incumbent on all of us to ask the question, why is it that irrespective of all that President Obama has done for America and that is without any help from the “Do Nothing Republican Obstructionist Congress,” Obama’s is demeaned by Republicans, some Congressional Democrats and a large number of the American public.


I can’t help but wonder that if Barack Obama was 100% white and Republican, how the GOP would have used him as their Poster Child to win every election for decades to come. The problem with Democrats is that most of them are timid and they seem to be born without a backbone.



All 1,500 Television Stations; 9,000 Radio Stations; 1,500 News Paper; 3,000 Magazines and the 2,400 Publishers are owned by six [6] corporations. It is no wonder good news like 288,000 jobs created in one month is news for about an hour or two, but when the job market fell in August to 142,000, they are all still beating the drum of “slow-down.”



In the final analysis, majority of Americans are uninformed, ignorant of facts and those that are not brainwashed, they are sinister about Obama’s 50% African American blood. People don’t like to talk about race, especially the Media, but race became front and center since Mr. Obama became President.

Kelly, O’Reilly And Hannity, Fox News Whores Selling Lies And Hate For The Two Pimps That Own Fox News; Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal and Australian Rupert Murdoch.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2014 by sheriffali

Megyn Kelly latest Post reads; Obama Miserable Failure and of course you will find the same dysfunction on the Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Chris Wallace, Mike Huckabee, Britt Bair and any Fox Misnomer News Program, except Shepherd Smith.


Obama saw that Military Power alone couldn’t not rectify Iraq’s problem. President Obama made it clear that the Iraqi Prime Minister Nour al-Maliki that squandered the opportunity given to Iraq by America’s sacrifice, he had to go. John McCain came out blasting Obama by saying it would take years for Maliki to go and for a New Government to be formed. McCain was wrong and Obama was right.


The President of Iraq appointed a New Prime Minister and despite two days of posturing by Maliki, he resigned. The New Government of Iraq would be fully in place in a matter of a week to 10 days. Once that was established, Obama ordered Air Strikes on ISIS and rescued the Iraqi Yazidis that were stuck on the Mountain. We used Air Strikes and the Kurds and other factions of the Iraqi Military were the ground force. ISIS had taken the largest Dam in Iraq. Same result. Obama ordered Air Strikes and the Iraqi Soldiers recaptured the Dam and took control of it. Over the past week the Iraqi Amrelis that were under siege by ISIS, Obama ordered aid dropped and Air Strikes and the Iraqi ground forces rescued the Amrelis and ended the siege.


Solely, because President Obama has refused to listen to the Republicans War Drum Beat and have focused on a permanent solution, critics of Obama including some in the Media, not just Fox News, have been pouncing on the President. But, one thing is for certain and that is, Obama doesn’t capitulate under pressure; he knows who he is and his well thought out objective. Had he listened to John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Mike Rogers and all of the other talking heads, we would have been in at least a dozen Moslem Countries and perhaps, just perhaps, started World War 111 with Russia. Ukraine cannot win a War against Russia, it is going to take the Europeans and the United States, to impose further and devastating sanctions on Russia and that would bring about the solution that is needed.   


99% of Fox News Guests are all Bush and Cheney’s lunatics that got us into Iraq; squandered the lives of our Soldiers, 4,500 dead; 52,000 plus, severely wounded; 75,000 plus with severe Mental Problems; killed hundreds of thousands of Civilian Iraqis and all for the bargain cost of 1.7 Trillion Dollars.


What was it all about? Well, the New Provinces since the fall and death of Saddam; ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, British Petroleum and others. Apart from dozens in the Bush Administration that made Billions, Dick Cheney alone, his Company Halliburton made 39.5 Billion Dollars from the tragedy George W Bush, Dick Cheney and their cronies inflicted on America, Iraq and essentially, the world.


As for Iraq, what did we accomplish? We captured and killed a Sunni Dictator, Saddam Hussein and replaced him with a Shiite Dictator that was exiled in Iran, Nour Al-Maliki. Maliki turned out to be even worse than Saddam, because under Saddam, Iraq had no Al Qaeda and there was no ISIS or other terrorist cells in Iraq. On top of that, Saddam kept the lid on Iran.


George W Bush signed an agreement in 2008 clearly stating that “all” American Forces would be withdrawn from Iraq by December 31, 2011. Months before December 31, 2011 the Obama Administration sought to get Iraqi Prime Minister Nour al-Maliki to sign a Status of Forces Agreement in order for us to leave a residual force of 10,000 Soldiers. Maliki refused because he no longer had to take orders from the United States, his Orders came directly from Iran, where he was exiled for 20 years.


But, Fox News and the Republicans have and continue to promulgate misinformation to the uninformed Americans that somehow, the chaos you see in Iraq and the Middle-East is President Obama’s fault. The difference between Obama and Bush is that, Obama value the lives of the American Soldiers and do not send them in the Middle of other people’s Religious Wars and Civil Conflicts. On the other hand, Bush and Cheney saw and used the United States Military as dispensable and used the Military to satisfy their own GREED and Machismo.


I have asked myself time and time again, why can’t the American People that are so dedicated to the Republican Party and Fox News, see the truth? After much thought the only answer I am able to devise is;


“When you are dead, you don’t know you are dead, others do, but you don’t. Using the same philosophy, the same applies to “stupidity.”


With all certainty, this is the objective of Republican Politicians and Fox News;


Republicans: By keeping their base stupid that is how they remain in Office!


Fox News: By keeping their base stupid that is how they maintain their audience!


If your comment is based in fact and intellect I will leave your comment and even respond, however, if you just another Troll, I will not only delete you but block you!

To Stop ISIS We Must Embrace Our Prodigal Sons Iran And Syria. Jihadists Don’t Fight For Democracy, They Fight For Religious Superiority. Comingling Religion And State Is Most Dangerous To Society As A Whole. We Are Witnessing That Fact Presently.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 26, 2014 by sheriffali

Since we didn’t learn that invading Vietnam was a bad idea that didn’t accomplish anything but a decade plus years of death, destruction and misery, for both the United States and Vietnam, and repeated the same mistake with Bush and Cheney Invading Iraq, we cannot invade Countries unless we intend on creating a 51st State and or more States for every country we invade.


The Gulf States, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and the others are not going to assist us in getting rid of the despicable group ISIS and others like them. We can provide Intelligence and Air Cover and both Iran and Syria, respectively, can assist with the ground operations. As bad as we may see the Governments of Syria and Iran, nothing turned out to be worst than ISIS. And, neither Syria nor Iran want or desire any further encroachment in Iraq by ISIS or any other country, most of all their own.


More often than not it has been said that “It is better to deal with the Devil you know than the unknown Satanic Force that may prevail by taking down the known Devil.” Three good examples; as bad as we may have seen Saddam Hussein he was always a secular Government and never a Religious Government. And, despite Saddam’s egregiousness, there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq when Dictator Saddam was President. The same can be said for Libya, Egypt and several other countries.


If we listen to Republicans like John McCain, Lindsay Graham and other Republicans, they would have us start a new war every week. The GOP apart from being there for the very Rich, they don’t do anything to help domestically, the Americans people. If we were to get involved with unrest especially in the Middle-Eastern Countries, we are going to have to remain in those countries in perpetuity. In doing so, we are going to drain our Treasury Dry just like Bush and Cheney did; incur  the loss of tremendous amount of precious lives in our Military; suffer horrific injuries to our Soldiers and sooner rather than later, we would collapse just like The Soviet Union [Russia] did.


ISIS is a major problem at the moment, but, they are not unstoppable. ISIS can only continue to prevail if we remain capricious. Whatever decision President Obama makes, he has to be very mindful of the Republicans phantasmagoric rationales and internecine policies. Bush, Cheney and the other Republican Neocons Orwellian attitude is what has turned the world upside down. They can cheat, lie, misrepresent and continue to blame President Obama for the upside down world, but, factually, they are the reason, irrespective of how much they try to deny that fact.

Ronald Fraud Reagan and George H W Bush era, are Crooks, Liars and Thieves and that is when America lost its Virginity. Don’t blame Obama!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 15, 2014 by sheriffali

Crooks Liars Thieves


Ronald Fraud Reagan, Republicans Greek god that began the destruction of the Middle-Class and the Fracture of the Unions, were the catalyst that built America.


Reagan and Bush Sr. was head of the Iran Contra Scandal – 14 Convictions; HUD Scandal – 16 Convictions 8 Billion; S & L Scandal – 32 Convictions 1.5 Trillion Dollars. On January 20, 1993 hours before Bill Clinton was sworn in, President George Herbert Walker Bush, pardoned the Iran Contra Felons to avoid further trials that would have implicated both Reagan and Bush and they could have faced criminal indictments.


The photo attached to this Blog contains “actual facts” as attested to by Oliver North as described in the Times Magazine. Look at the Photo and you would see Bush Sr. sitting with Manuel Noriega in Panama. Bush and Reagan were buddies with Noriega in Noriega’s protection of the Columbian Cartel that provided a cut to the CIA to conduct Reagan’s illegal South American War. Bush invaded Panama in 1989 and captured Noriega, brought him back to America and had a dog and pony trial in Florida, where Noriega was convicted and served decades in Prison. This was again done to protect Reagan and Bush Sr.


The today’s Republicans are up in arms about the South American Refugee Children trying to come into America due to the violence in their South American Countries, but, they purposefully overlook that Reagan and Bush literally torpedoed South America after they had used and abused the South American countries and their Leaders. We act like we have clean hands and point the finger at others, but, we spent decades turning the world upside down.


Reagan and Bush were also great buddies with Saddam Hussein. They provided weaponry to Saddam during Saddam’s eight year war with Iran. Then when Saddam got out of control, old man Bush set a trap for the not so bright evil Saddam to invade Kuwait and that was the beginning of what turned out to be twenty-four years and counting, of our involvement with Iraq.


But, just look at the Republicans what they have been doing for the past six years; they cast blame on Obama for all that ails America. Between Reagan, Bush Sr., Bush the son and evil Cheney, the world you see upside down at present, they are the gift horses that are responsible for the chaos.

FOX NEWS – “THE KELLY FILE” SPECIAL GUEST, Fox Pet Child And Hero Dick Cheney

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2014 by sheriffali



6,781 Dead American Soldiers; 50, 159 Wounded; 100,000 Plus Innocent Dead Iraqis and Dick Cheney blames President Obama for Iraq’s Chaos.


At one point in the article, the Cheneys state:


“Iraq is at risk of falling to a radical Islamic terror group and Mr. Obama is talking climate change. Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing.”


Mr. Cheney must think that we have all forgotten the scene from “Fahrenheit 9/11,” Michael Moore’s 2004 documentary, in which President George W. Bush, brandishing a club on a golf course, looks into the camera and says,


“I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Thank you.”


That is quickly followed by, “Now, watch this drive,” and a shot of Bush swinging at the ball.


In fact, on one of the rare occasions that Mr. Cheney was actually right, in 1994, he warned about the problems that would be created by deposing Saddam Hussein:


“Once you got to Iraq and took it over, and took down Saddam Hussein’s government, then what are you going to put in its place? That’s a very volatile part of the world, and if you take down the central government of Iraq you can easily end up seeing pieces of Iraq fly off. Part of it the Syrians would like to have to the west. Part of eastern Iraq, the Iranians would like to claim, fought over for eight years. In the north you’ve got the Kurds, and if the Kurds spin loose and join with the Kurds in Turkey, then you threaten the territorial integrity of Turkey. It’s a quagmire.”



That was quite prescient. And yet, the Bush administration pushed us into the Iraq war anyway, and the quagmire we now confront.


That’s why it’s so galling to read Mr. Cheney chastising this administration for its handling of the disaster that Mr. Cheney himself foresaw, but ignored.” [NYT – Charles Blow]

New York Times, Theocracy in the Middle East is the reason why there is no Democracy!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 12, 2014 by sheriffali

Why do you want Obama to reengage us Militarily in Iraq and supposedly compel these people to stop killing each other. This Shiite Sunni “bad-blood” has existed for thousands of years; didn’t you see enough Americans killed and wounded and Tax Payers money at the tune of 1.7 trillion down the drain and for what?


Bush and Cheney were wrong for breaking Iraq but neither they nor Obama could fix it. George Herbert Walker Bush at the end of the 1991 Iraq conflict left Saddam Hussein in Power for one sole reason; “Saddam Hussein was a secular Leader and Bush 41 had the better sense to know that if Saddam fell, the Shiites would take over and turn Iraq into another Iran Theocracy and that is exactly where we are today.


The New York Times Editorial says; “For lasting success, the United States must compel Iraq’s divisive leadership to pursue government by reconciliation just as vigorously as it pursues battle field victory.” Just how can you compel any Government in the Middle East to do anything? In one of the dumbest things George W. Bush did during his Presidency was to listen to the Vulcans Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld and others, and invade Iraq in the name of Democracy.


We have a host of problems right here in our country between Right Wing and Left Wing, Conservatives and Liberals,  religious extremism from the far right and our own Politicians promulgate the drum beat and throw red-meat to the uninformed, ignorant and brainwashed Americans, for their own self gain on remaining in power and if we can’t fix that, just how do we go about rectifying someone else’s problems!


Iraq was controlled by the Ottoman Empire for decades and the British at the request of the Iraqis spent years ridding Iraq of the Ottomans only to be kicked out shortly thereafter. We spent eight years at a high cost in lives, injury and broke the Treasury trying to force Democracy down the throats of the Iraqis, using over 1,000,000 United States Soldiers and to what end.


The same Iraqi President that refused to sign a “Status of Forces Agreement” that caused us to fully withdraw from Iraq, he is the same one that made the secret request for Obama to use Air Power against the Militants. If Obama places American Troops back into Iraq and even “one” soldier gets killed, the do nothing Republicans would be calling for Obama’s head as they do every day. Obama rescued one POW and we have seen these sanctimonious Politicians on the right and the left, advocating that it was a bad deal to give up five detainees to get our “own” Soldier back.
