More Self-Serving Bullshit From Fox News

Is a third Iraq war imminent? | Fox News

Enough already! Let’s just agree it’s everybody’s fault. Bush shouldn’t have gone into Iraq and Obama shouldn’t have gotten out. There is plenty of blame to go around for past mistakes, but we are where we are and the question now is, what do we do?

I don’t agree with either proposition.  Iraq was a perfectly sensible move – as the opening engagement of a war designed to destroy those regimes that supported terror against us.  Bush’s mistake was not in going in, it was in not leaving after destroying Saddam’s regime and going after Iran, Syria, and Saudi Arabia.

Obama’s departure is also perfectly sensible, once it becomes obvious that we have no reason to be there other than the hideous botch known as the Democracy Project, for which almost no Americans are willing to sacrifice American blood and treasure.

BTW, this is coming from Fox News, which never mentions that Saudi Arabia is the primary driver behind Sunni terrorism.  I wonder why that is?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
