    Its amazing that they lied about WMD, killed a couple hundred thousand civilians, wasted a trillion dollars of our money, wasted 4,500 servicemen/women's lives, and left Iraq broken in chaos, and you give one of the responsible parties a pass like that. But you pin Obama's neck to the ground over a unfortunate red line comment. Partisan politics on full display.

    A lot of people, and unfortunate for America, and more so for the people of Iraq, too many politicians allowed themselves to be confined to a position of support of something they didn't wholeheartedly support by a very pushy and forceful administration that worked tirelessly to paint anyone who opposed the invasion of Iraq as anti-American, unpatriotic, pro-dictatorship and terrorist. Leaving people in fear for their careers. Unfortunately, politicians all put that in front of anything else. In recent years, some have expressed the pressure they were under, though for me, it doesn't excuse them.

    Good day.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Isn't the WMD thing kinda tricky? We found less chemical weapons in Syria than Iraq and it was claimed a WMD. The same materials in a greater quantity were found in Iraq, yet they were not WMDs. That is the one I will never get.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Kerry is an idiot and should keep his very insincere mouth shut.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Well, mainly when George Bush told us of WMD he was talking nuclear weapons. Joe Wilson was dispatched to Niger to confirm that Saddam Hussein had purchased yellow cake uranium and we were being frightened with imminent mushroom clouds over US cities.

    How many intelligent agencies came up with that answer from around the world?
