And why Rumsfeld and his commander in chief aren't standing trial someplace is it's own kind of monument - to unfairness and "letting bygones be bygones".


You mean THIS anti war activist(who was one of the main schemers behind the Kent State riots)

Great post overall and I certainly agree with you.


Most importantly, it needs to be realised that both the Republicans and Democrats have made these decision and that neither party can claim any kind of moral superiority over the other, at all. The blood shed really is on everyone's hands


Both parties are certainly culpable however, the criticism is rarely applied with an even hand. Often, the blind eye prevails over the hand of criticism. I was not really around ATS during the Bush years and I certainly have my criticisms of his administration. However, I am just amazed how the current admin. manages to get a free pass for doing the same things and more than his predecessor ever did to harm our nation. It does not matter to his blind supporters and any discussion is practically impossible.

An Ayers Dohrn monument!! What a great idea. Then we can just blow it up. Their little group blew up a famous statue in front of the Cleveland Museum of Art. It still stands today as it did the day they blew the bottom half of it apart. What great activists for peace

Most of the liberal morons only consider nuclear items as WDM, but there are much worst things.


No there aren't. At most Saddam had tiny remnants of chemical weapons, which are not actually WMD's. You need delivery systems of conventional military sorts, like aircraft and artillery. And if you have indiscriminate ability to deliver chemical WMD's, you could just as easily drop cluster bombs, which are at least as destructive.

Biological weapons, in theory, might be actual WMD's, but it's never been proven that they can actually work successfully and there are serious barriers (as in biology wants to do what biology wants). It's very unlikely Iraq had anywhere near any serious capability; probably only the USSR did.


Chemical and biological weapons, which Sadam did have, and were whisked away to Syria by the Russians, are much worse.


Not in the slightest. The supposed chemical weaponry did almost nothing militarily---suppose Saddam instead had 25 nuclear warheads on his missiles (actual WMD) and actually used them?

I'll take a stab at this...why do people hate Soros and what did he do besides hate George Bush?

From Canada Free Press
www.canadafreepress.com...


“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.”—George Soros


That should be self-explanatory to everyone here, but should you need more reason....


Is it possible to lay the global financial meltdown, the radicalizing of the Democratic Party, and America’s moral decline, at the feet of one man?
It is indeed possible.

If George Soros isn’t the world’s preeminent “malignant messianic narcissist,” he’ll do until the real thing comes along. Move over, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot. There’s a new kid on the block.

What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be a world class philosopher, despises capitalism, and just loves social engineering.


He was one of the Hitler Youth


In 1944 Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews. The Soros children were all given fake identity papers, and were shipped out to various Christian families. George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.


And in an interview he said he was NOT sorry, not one bit.


France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars. (Source)

Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum writes that “The Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. [Soros’] deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary’s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.” (Source)


www.canadafreepress.com...

That is just the tip of the iceberg. He abuses the Capitalist system in order to destroy currencies and bring in the Totalitarian Socialist/Globalist/Communist One World Govt.

Oh and he works for the Rothschilds.

Michael Savage wrote in his book "Trickle Up Poverty", he showed how Soros and other hedge fund crooks engineered the market crash and giving the election to Obama in 08, and he continued in his book "Trickle Down Tyranny" to explain Soros' involvement with the radical leftist Occupy Wall Street.

At best, your question, what did the guy do to deserve such hatred is naive. It is easy to find on the Net what the guy has done in this world. He is one of the major powers behind Barack.

Oh gee I nearly forgot! Here's a list of the radical leftist fronts Soros has funded

I do not really get it. If there is real proof of such a large cover up the politicians that instigated the war should be up on charges on mass murder... It is a massive failure of government..



I think they should bring Bush/Cheney and all the others involved up on charges and imprison them for treason. They put our country, our families, our military all in danger, some were killed for their fake war. They need to pay for what they did to us.

The shape we are in now is a direct result of the lies that Bush/Cheney told and the road they took us down.

Even the economy, Bush started this deficit. Granted, Obama hasn't cleaned it up yet and added a great deal onto it, but percentage-wise, Bush still grew a bigger deficit than Obama has or any other President has. I'm not defending Obama at all, he has issues as well, but nothing compared to the issues Bush/Cheney had and until we hold THEM accountable, how can we hold anyone else accountable?

The total cleansing sounds like a very good idea to me. Clean out all of them, both parties, every last one of them. A clean start is the only way we're going to be able to clean up this mess.

It was a lie, plain and simple.

My most vivid memory of it was at a friend's house. Her aged mother who I had known my entire life and had never, ever uttered a foul word toward or about anyone in all the years I knew her. She went to church as many times a week as possible, blushed at the word "darn" and barely spoke above a whisper.

She came into the room with tears flowing down her cheeks and said loud and clear "That Son of a B&($% just declared war". Even thinking about it now my eyes well up and I get a catch in my throat.

We knew at the time it was a lie. We watched as it unfolded before our eyes. Not a day after the towers were hit, we were already saying that Bush would go after Saddam whether he had anything to do with it or not. He did. He totally ignored Bin Laden and went after Saddam who had absolutely nothing to do with it.

I'm not saying Saddam was innocent of any wrongdoing of any kind, he clearly wasn't. However, our nation had just experienced an attack that supposedly came from Bin Laden (I still question whether it was Bin Laden or Bush himself, or at least Cheney). Instead of going after the group that supposedly attacked us, he went a completely different direction and attacked the man who threatened to kill his daddy who also had massive oil reserves.

I don't like any of the politicians much, but Bush and Cheney are at the absolute bottom of my list. They disgust me to no end and I am absolutely ashamed that they were allowed to reside in the White House. They are the most shameful "men" to ever represent our country and I blame each and every problem we have, both then and now, on the two of them. No, Obama isn't blameless at all, but it started with Bush and Cheney. They marked the beginning of our fall. I have pure, unadulterated hatred for them and would support having them drawn and quartered on national television.

Well that really explains a lot about Colin Powell. I really liked him. He has a conscious. He went along with it though. So sad. Sure there's probably more, but that's enough.

Really this whole episode is when my husband and I started feeling like we were outsiders. We were the only two that seemed to see through all this and didn't want that war. I was at work- my whole department was ALL for the war..they were so puffed up. He was experiencing the same thing at his workplace.

It was bad enough that we were pagan, at that time we both started to think maybe we were living in a different reality.

Donald Rumsfeld was an honest man, at least in comparison to the idiot bush and the evil prick called cheney.

Did the serbian government try milosevic or was it the international court at the hague?

Do the african governments try their dictators that massacres thousands of civilians? Nope.

The bankers control everything. Nothing new! (yawn)

seriously, they suddenly start throwing around the word iraq straight after 911... they were gunning for a showdown


I 100% agree with this comment. Anyone who believed Iraq had WMD's and was a threat was an idiot. My friend made a "No Blood for Oil" T-shirt back in 2003, when the painfully obvious truth was well known.

Great post thank you.
They sold that war on Americans in fear, what else are they trying to sell us based on fear?
North Korea and Nukes? China and internet Espionage? Our Constitutional rights to bear arms, free speech and privacy based on American people and some isolated cases of extreme violence? Americans as terrorists because of an ex officer and Veteran and another Veteran in Alabama? An Asteroid Defense system based on a once in 100 year event "unexpected" and an extremely ironic amount of uploaded videos since the Russian event of Contrails that are in strange maneuvers that without some well schooled individuals on here we would all believe were meteorites.

The timing is impeccable for this info to be released- yes it was a manufactured war for resources most of our endeavors are, historically speaking. Would the Government release this slyly because of other reasons-YES! Look at the track record they deal in deception Republicans, Democrats whomever. They want us all up in arms of the bad deeds of the republicans- After all it is that party that is against gun control. Make them the bad guy maybe the people will believe it is a party and not the whole we should be angry with. It is not though it is all of them they all knew the score and played us like a fiddle they are now on many fronts. What do we do? About the American lives lost in the war- for oil. Like someone else said we did not even get cheap gas. What about the dishonesty the mobsters in office wagging the dog for us promising change when we in fact meet the new boss same as the old boss? We do not need a revolution or a civil war, there has been enough blood shed and strangely I think they want that to further the control agenda. No I say we OPT OUT of every thing pick a day spread the word and do nothing, take money out of the banks go home buy nothing do not go to work do not spend our money buying gas or groceries Until we are heard until every unconstitutional amendment and law and act is repealed until we have answers and transparency until we are heard. It is our government let us make it by the people for the people again. Sorry about the rant this got me going.

Thank you OP, This was a crime lives were lost families destroyed not to mention a country destroyed, there should be a trial. This is America

They are scheming, secretive, lying SOBs, who will toss Amerikan blood on battlefields and not even think about it. They really DO NOT CARE anymore about the soldier's lives, or the family's lives who are so affected by this- much less the children and other innocents who bear the brunt of their lasting destruction with depleted uranium.

Amen to that. I'm still waiting for someone in government to have enough gonads to stand up and declare Bush and his cronies war criminals. Any leader from another country who would have invaded another country under false pretenses like the U.S. did, would have been tried as a war criminal a long time ago.

If people have not figured out by now the real reason by now. Here it is.
The United States has a giant air base with unlimited fuel. Right smack in the Middle East. In the 80's. it took 8hrs to fly to Iran. Now...we make a call like a chinese take out joint. Be there in 10 minute...

You really think for a second we are gonna give up a game changer like that?
