    Bushy was right.

    WTF would the left believe without RW'ers here to correct their every bizarre notion?

    GWB as usual just talking out his ass. The reality is.....for the neocons "Never" is too early.

    Secondly, Bushy said that major ground operations were concluded and that was correct.

    Only airheads and ignorami believe(d) otherwise.
    Heh heh. Yeah, he was completely uninvolved with the whole set up. The President of the United States of America, giving a HUGE press conference, leaves something like that to the whims of others.

    Much less the responsibility of governing without RW'ers on hand to keep them honest, grounded and accurate.

    Congress withdrew the promised support of the ARVN forces after we left Saigon and that deprived them of the bullets and etc. to defend themselves, which they amply proved they were capable of and willing to do in the Easter offensive.

    Easter Offensive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Libs succeeded in pulling defeat from the mouth of victory in Viet Nam.

    All so they could crow about being right.

    The pettiness of Liberals hurts America yet again.

    It is possible that the WH arranged it in advance. But the POTUS has his plate so full of more important matters that his schedule is often subdivided into five minute segments. What you are doing says more about you than Bushy. He isn't petty like that. Libs, (by virtue of their mental hard wiring from the factory) typically are. I think you are projecting your own pettiness onto him. People self reference like that all the time. But it's not always a good thing.

    The crew of the ship probably did it and maybe cleared it with the WH liaisons beforehand.

    Oh, I don't take MYSELF all that seriously. But I DO take facts seriously and am used to others, (like yourself?) playing fast and loose with them so that the danger is that others may take your words to be facts when they aren't, and make a decision which could be very serious based on that inaccuracy.

    Case in point.

    Early today I heard Glenn Beck say he just read a Tweet which said the Queen had died. I immediately posted a thread to that effect. And then after posting it, I looked online for substantiation.

    Then, to my horror, I discovered that the Tweet was a false alarm.

    The excuse was that a BBC reporter was making a "Test Tweet" in preparation for when the Queen actually DOES die.



    I amended the thread as quickly as I could to reflect what happened, but it was an example of how someone who may have esteemed the truth too lightly caused ripples felt thousands of miles away and by maybe hundreds of thousands of people.

    Words have impact.

    Facts determine others' actions.

    You guys are too young, inexperienced, dumb and so often so persistently unconcerned about the important things in life that you treat facts as options to be used or not or paid attention to or not, as it pleases you.

    And that means I, who value veracity, feel compelled to correct inaccuracies for the record.

    Because it matters.

    And that I am quite serious about.

    Online, all we have is our credibility.

    You want to starve the beast, I want to increase taxes toward the rich. We'll see which happens more over the next ten years.

    I am willing to withhold my final judgement until I have all the facts.

    And none of US, who aren't privy to the facts which only he and a select few others in Govt., had at the time, have all the pertinent facts.

    Did the PNAC have a plan to dethrone Saddam?

    I believe they did and I believe they were pushing it on W to implement.

    But was that the sole or the deciding factor behind the decision to invade?

    Pffft!

    I frequently go to the bathroom with more than one reason in mind, so to think that the POTUS actually invaded Iraq for one reason and a nefarious reason at that, is ludicrous.

    The last time I bothered counting maybe 7 or 8 years ago, there were about seven or eight good reasons I'd thought of which justified our invasion.

    How about you thinking of just ONE.

    Go.
