    The personification of a war monger and war profiteer is Cheney.
    Yes Rand Paul is playing politics. But while playing politics he and many forget one little important factor in regard to Cheney and Halliburton. Halliburton WAS the only damn company that had the means as far as equipment, mobility and manpower to handle the job in Iraq.

    Which,of course, Darth Cheney knew when he orchestrated the debacle.

    That's not how I recall it. The decision to go into Iraq was done as a preventative measure to protect our military already in Afghanistan and to cut off Saddams funding of terrorists groups that were vowing more attacks on the U.S. after 9/11. The threat of chemical weapons getting into the hands of these terrorists was real and still is. Just last week news outlets were reporting that the insurgence into Iraq had taken control of chemical weapons stockpiles. How could that be when all of us were told there were no weapons of mass destruction? Even the inspectors reports listed the evidence that Saddam was still engaging in making such things, the stockpile of them was never found. I remember Bush putting a coalition together and the Democrats voting twice to invade Iraq because they too saw the need for prevention. The intel they had in making that decision went clear back to the Clinton years. Cheney was wrong on things like thinking we would be greeted like liberators but those who flip flopped on the war and now want to make Cheney the scapegoat is as hypocritical as it comes.

    Rand Paul is functionally retarded.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    So? We shouldn't call a spade a spade because the other side would benefit from it? Sounds like some Blue Code of Silence crap to me.

    That is one conspiracy theory thrown around.
