Do Bush And Blair Realise Their Iraq Invasion Has Become A Damned Disaster ?



*


Sounds to us like a sensible, straightforward and simple enough question to ask.

Wouldn't you also say so?

Well, whatever.

See what some others have said on the same subject.

How the big wheels in the Bush administration have turned full circle

*The CIA Man*

"Iraq is now what Afghanistan was in the late-1970s and throughout the 80s into the 90s, and that's an insurgent magnet, if you will, a mujahedin magnet, only much, much worse."

Michael Scheuer, Former Head of the CIA's Bin Laden Unit


*The Neo-Con*

"The US objective in Iraq has failed... Our mission has failed because Iraqi animosities have proved uncontainable by an invading army of 130,000. And the administration has, now, to cope with failure."

William Buckley, Conservative Editor of The National Review


*The General*

"The commitment of our forces to this fight was done with a casualness and swagger that are the special province of those who have never had to execute these missions - or bury the results."

Retired Marine Lt Gen Gregory Newbold


*The Administration Man*

"We didn't have enough troops on the ground. We didn't impose our will. And as a result, an insurgency got started and... got out of control."

Colin Powell, Former Joint Chief of Staff and US Secretary of State


*The Adviser*

"There'll probably be some things in our report that the administration might not like... I personally believe in talking to your enemies. Neither the Syrians nor the Iranians want a chaotic Iraq."

James Baker, Former US Secretary of State


Today's 'Independent' ran an interesting piece pointing out the latest episodes of the plights of the now internationally infamous Blood Brothers, Bush and Blair.

Seems as though saying "shambles" would be an understatement, eh?

Take a little look via this link.

No they don't. That's the bloody terrifying thing not only do they not realise it - they don't care. They're right and everyone else is wrong.

Arrogant weak little pr*cks the pair of them.

If, when I die, I go to hell, I'll at least have the consolation of being able to watch that pair being grilled nice and crispy for all eternity. To hell with them and I mean that most sincerely.

I hope their respective journies to hell are long and painful, and once therein that their imprisonment ad infinitum is worse.

When those two got together it was a million times worse than when Ian Brady and Myra Hindley did. What a sad and sorry day for the whole planet when they first met up.

Richard,
Recently, Blair has nuice things to say about Canada. Our weak PM, Stephen Harper has joined the decayed club of Bush and Blair. Because of our active involvment in Afghanistan and our little Bush raise politically in xCanada's texas equivalent oil rich and christian right faithtful province, Alberta, another man has nice things to say about Canada recently. He is Conrad Black, British citizen, press tycoon, Prime ministers maker, he is trying to regain his canadian citizenship (he renounced it when he became a 'noble' englishman) in order to escaspe imprisonment in the US for his fraudulent business at Hollinger.

Those two don't even realise there are differences between their arses and their elbows ~ if you take my meaning.

Hey, Richard! Your picture's gone missing!

But clicking on the little red x finds it again. Why is that?

Bootlian, the reason they can't tell the difference because Bush's elbow is now pressed hard up against Bliar's arse. Damn the pair of megalomaniacs.

John Howard, Australia's prime minister has the same attitude as B&B.
