George W. Bush in 2007 warning about the consequences of pulling out of Iraq too early
Published on Sep 6, 2014
Megyn Kelly reminds her viewers of warnings back in 2007 from President Bush of what would happen if we withdrew from Iraq, that epitomize what is happening right now under the Obama administration. Bush claimed that the withdrawal of U.S. troops before “our commanders tell us we are ready, would be dangerous for Iraq, for the regions, and for the United States.”
“It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Queda. It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.
It would mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan.
It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.”
As we all well know, this is exactly what happened. It was even part of Obama’s campaign. He ordered a complete withdrawal, and exactly everything that Bush warmed us about has happened under the watch of Obama.
ISIS is much more “dangerous” than al Queda, and they are far more brutal. They constantly behead and orchestrate the mass killing of women, children, and Christians. And do so for all to see via social media.
Their “safe haven” happens to be the caliphate they established and are imposing on surrounding countries, forcing them to convert to Islam or die.
The warnings Bush gave were so prophetic that they are chilling. Why did our leaders not heed his warnings? Why would Obama disregard his commanders and allow for this to take place? Was this a calculated decision on his part, or was it just ignorance?
