  1. What ever happened to that “civil war” that ABC-BS and the rest of the liberal media declared?

    Comment by ThatGayConservative — August 20, 2010 @ 7:05 am - August 20, 2010

  2. What ever happened to that “quagmire” the liberals were squealing, like Ned Beatty, about before our troops even set foot in country?

  3. Will Obama now send in a team of community organizers to establish the first fundamentally transformed socialist Muslim state?

    I pray that the people of Iraq find stability and peace in their quest to live alone among the nations of the world.

    An excellent post. However, our enemies don´t see it as we do. Yesterday, on the front page of El Diario Nuevo of Managua, Nicaragua, was published a statement by Evo Morales, saying that the withdrawal of American troops means that it a sign ¨of surrender and defeat.¨He hopes that the U.S has learned it´s lesson and will no longer militarily interfer other nations problems.

  5. Last night on the Colbert Report, The monologue was about the withdraw. Steven Colbert rips Obama badly for his total lack of enthusiasm at this moment.—what-if-you-threw-a-peace-and-nobody-came-

  6. “BE PROUD AMERICA: We liberated a nation of 18 million oppressed people from a satanic dictator who hijacked the Muslim faith for his own glory and power. BE PROUD!”

  7. Thank you U.S. military and President Bush, for the American victory. Thank you President Obama for minimizing the impact, in Iraq at least, of your general fecklessness.

  8. We now tell the people of Iraq what Franklin and the other Founders told us. “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

  9. Looks like Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink, etc. are out of a job.

  10. Thank you American troops.

  11. But the sad thing is that even though millions were liberated, pundits will say it was because of oil…

  12. Thank you American soldiers.

  13. No, I don’t believe we did. We spent billions of dollars we didn’t have; we lost over 4,000 young Americans and several hundred thousands Iraqi’s are either dead or displaced; Iraq is not really any more secure today than it was in 2003. We didn’t win; we still have over 50k troops on the ground there and they will probably be there for decades, just like they are in Japan and Germany and Korea today. You and I pay for that through a lower quality of life here at home, fewer jobs, recessions, deflation of the value of our homes, and nutjobs all over the radio and tv and in political circles. America is becoming a oligarchy with a very select upper ruling class, a narrow small middle class, and an extremely large poor class and destitute working class, thanks to conservative economic policies and wars of choice. No we lost.

  14. #11 And liberals will still ignore the warnings, of the folks they voted for, long before Bush even got elected.

    How they can still, with a straight face, call Bush a “warmonger” after BJ deployed the military 44 times is beyond my comprehension.

  15. You and I pay for that through a lower quality of life here at home, fewer jobs, recessions, deflation of the value of our homes, and nutjobs all over the radio and tv and in political circles.

    And even if those things were correct, we still liberated eighteen million people from the clutches of a genocidal, homicidal dictator who had already tortured, maimed, imprisoned, and killed over one million of them, had destroyed entire swaths of ecosystem and poisoned the environment to do so, and was taking food out of childrens’ mouths so that he and his tiny oligarchy could live in opulence while millions starved.

    The entertaining part, steve, is that Saddam Hussein was fully as bad as you and your fellow leftists paint Bush to be. But for some reason, you don’t care about that, which demonstrates that your whining is nothing more than blatant, racist hypocrisy.

  16. #13: Wow Steve. That’s a whole lot of stupid packed into one post.

    Comment by AF_Vet — August 20, 2010 @ 11:38 pm - August 20, 2010

  17. interesting. On Sept 11, should we celebrate the 9th anniversary of Bush, Cheney, Rice, etc, spending nearly 8 months ignoring mounting evidence that Bin-Laden/Al-Queda would attack the United States?

    Comment by Kevin — August 21, 2010 @ 1:50 am - August 21, 2010

  18. where is this 18 million figure coming from? the UNs figures for 2003 say that iraq had 25 million people in it…

    Comment by monty — August 21, 2010 @ 3:25 am - August 21, 2010

  19. There was nothing honorable about an ILLEGAL invasion and occupation of a country which never attacked us! Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rice, Rove, and Perle are WAR CRIMINALS!

    Over 150,000 people were killed in this STUPID war, you moron!

    Comment by steve — August 21, 2010 @ 10:24 am - August 21, 2010

  20. Paging King Pyhrrhus of Epirus, there’s a victory on the line.

    Comment by Boris Badunov — August 21, 2010 @ 12:07 pm - August 21, 2010

  21. There is nothing more moronic than making comments with blinders on. Bush, Cheney, et. al were acting on the same intelligence given Clinton, Gore et. al. Ipso facto they should be included in the list of War Criminals. When the invasion began dozens of tractor trailers departed for Syria, carrying the WMD´s

    The maladies we are experiencing which steve eludes to are not from conservative policies but by the bad economics of a liberal left. War was once big business. How do you think FDR got the U.S. out of the Great Depression, not by the New Deal, but by WWII, (the big one)

    Comment by Roberto — August 21, 2010 @ 12:45 pm - August 21, 2010

  22. #17: Really kevin? I’ve been in the Intelligence business since 1992. Would really like to know your source.

    And please be specific. For your post to have any credibility, you will need to point out how said intelligence was actionable by the Bush administration, but somehow was NOT actionable by Clinton’s team for the previous several years.

    Comment by AF_Vet — August 21, 2010 @ 4:30 pm - August 21, 2010

  23. #19: By “Illegal”, steve, you do of course mean “legal” and “Approved by congress”, oui?

    And please, DO point out exactly which crimes Bush and his adminstration are guilty of?

    Feel free to cite the specific US Code.
