Neocons to Bush: “Lets Do it Again”

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on January 31st, 2007 10:48 am by HL

The neocons have learned nothing from five years of catastrophe

Guardian U.K.
Their zealous advocacy of the invasion of Iraq may have been a disaster, but now they want to do it all over again – in Iran

Excerpt
The United States today spends approximately as much as the rest of the world combined on its military establishment. So it is worth pondering why it is that, after nearly four years of effort, the loss of thousands of American lives, and an outlay of perhaps half-a-trillion dollars, the US has not succeeded in pacifying a small country of some 24 million people, much less in leading it to anything that looks remotely like a successful democracy…

A final lesson that should have been drawn from the Iraq war is that the current US government has demonstrated great incompetence in its day-to-day management of policy. One of the striking things about the performance of the Bush administration is how poorly it has followed through in accomplishing the ambitious objectives it set for itself. In Iraq, the administration has acted like a patient with attention-deficit disorder.

H.L.s Take
Another good question is: Why is it taking longer to win in Iraq then it did to defeat Hitler, and Japan in WW2, of course we already know the answer.

    Yes of course HL………did we win those wars and are they actually over??

    Why are there more than 40k troops still in Germany??

    How about Japan?? Right around 60k troops there I believe??

    Those wars were won no doubt about it. How many tens of trillions of dollars have been spent keeping a force in both of those countries after the war was won??

    Hey, what the f**k you think I have been doing for the last 3 years, Guess you haven’t been paying attention.

    HL I believe the question is not what you have been saying for the last 3 years the question was “Those wars were won no doubt about it. How many tens of trillions of dollars have been spent keeping a force in both of those countries after the war was won??”
    Now try answering that question.

    HL just to help you with your problem. The facts are about the Iraq war that the war ended in 44 days.
    By another reckoning, the war in Iraq is already over, having lasted only 44 days. According to President Bush, it ended on May 1, 2003, when, standing on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, he said: “Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.”
