Haven’t we lost enough of our most valuable assets in Iraq? In excess of 4,500 Deaths; 50,000 Wounded; over 1.7 trillion spent and the same people that got us into this unbelievable tragedy through lies and deception are all over the Television Stations telling us even bigger lies than in 2003, to convince us to do it again!



The War Mongers in Congress, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, John Boehner, and the other Republicans blocked the 21 Billion Dollar Veterans Bill; Slashed Food Stamps that  help to subsidize our Veterans Income; Refused to extend the Unemployment Insurance that are badly needed by our returning Veterans, and yes, they want to create more Veterans.



Iraq War is Bush, Cheney and the Gang that couldn’t shoot straight travesty, and as long as the Middle East remains chaotic, it will always be their fault. Press your memory’s rewind button and honestly see if prior to the Iraqi Invasion, the Middle-East was this upside down. There were always problems there for decades but it got severely worst subsequent to Bush’s unintelligent invasion of Iraq.



“On this week’s five Sunday news shows (CNN’s State of the Union, ABC’s This Week, NBC’s Meet the Press, CBS’ Face the Nation andFox News Sunday) almost all of the guests that were brought on for interviews were white Republican males. When the APreleased the Sunday show guest lineups on Saturday, of the 15 guest slots, only three were filled by Democrats, two of whom are minorities and only one being a woman. However, when the shows were actually broadcast, all three Democrats were relegated to panels. Face the Nation did book another Democrat, former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, for an interview. Bob Schieffer also had on attorneys David Boies and Ted Olson to discuss their book. Boies is a known Democrat while Olson worked with President George W. Bush.



Outside of those two exceptions, the rest of the guests featured on Sunday’s shows are all white Republican men. On Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace interviewed Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), who made the most appearances on Sunday shows in 2013 and is on pace to be 2014′s top guest, Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) and Rep. Tom Price (R-GA). OVer on NBC, the majority of the program was dedicated to an interview with the loser of the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) was listed as a featured guest, but he was instead part of a panel discussion.



Meanwhile, over on CNN, Dana Bash, filling in for Candy Crowley, interviewed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), like Rogers, a constant fixture on Sunday shows, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), who lost to Tea Party challenger David Brat in Tuesday’s Republican primary. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was listed as a guest by the AP, but ended up being part of a panel. ABC’s This Week also had Cantor on, along with Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX). The show was also hosted by Republican toad Jonathan Karl, rather than normal host George Stephanopoulos Meanwhile, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), another person listed as a guest by the AP, was merely part of the panel. CBS, besides the guests listed above, also featured interviews with Graham and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.” []

McCain, Graham and Boehner; Prodding the GOP to refight the Iraqi War.

Despite the thousands of lives lost; the tens of thousands wounded and in excess of 1.7 Trillion Dollars spent on George W. Bush’s insane invasion of Iraq, John McCain has gone totally nuts and seems to be constantly on Fox and CNN, stating that we had won in Iraq but McCain is claiming he knew that when we withdraw the Troops out of Iraq, the country would fall into chaos. What did John McCain expect America to do? Keep our Military in Iraq at the cost of billions of dollars per week?


Fact of the matter is that despite the tremendous sacrifice of blood and treasure, we didn’t win anything and what Bush and Cheney broke in 2003 by invading Iraq, they were never able to repair the damage and as outsiders, we cannot fix what is wrong with Iraq by Military means. Any sensible person would know that the divide between the Sunnis and the Shiites have been going on for hundreds of years and the only people that can bring some sanity to Iraq, are the people that got into Power when Bush invaded Iraq.


As we are aware, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki that was basically installed by Bush, during the Iraqi election in 2010, al-Maliki didn’t get the majority of votes, but he refused to step down. Al-Maliki refused to sign the Status of Forces Agreement that would have protected Americans from Iraqi Law and it would have allowed President Obama to leave a residual force in Iraq. However, the agreement that was signed by George W Bush called for our total withdrawal at the end of 2011. Hence, without the Status of Forces Agreement, Obama had to withdraw all of the troops.


Al-Maliki, once America had left, he fired all of the Commanders from the army that we had trained and fortified with weapons at a cost of 15 billion dollars. Al-Maliki then hired his cronies that became obligated to him and set Iraq on a downward course that is the result of Iraq’s present predicament. How or what President Obama is going to do, I can’t say, but I would quicker trust Obama’s decision than the war-mongering John McCain and others in the Republican Party.

McCain who has taken the position that he is some type of War Expert has a questionable Vietnam record. You be the Judge and read what Command Sergeant John Holland account of John McCain is. Open the link, they are not my words, they are that of Command Sergeant, John Holland.
