An ironically interesting video has been making its way around the net, in which Vice President Dick Cheney makes the case against going into Baghdad in the wake of the first Gulf War. In a 1994 interview on CNN, Cheney noted, “If we’d gone on to Baghdad we would have been all alone…it would have been a U.S. occupation of Iraq. …Once you got to Iraq and took it over, took out Saddam Hussein’s government, then what are you going to put into its place? … It’s a quagmire if you go that far…”
We know why Cheney didn’t listen to any of the cautionary voices in the intelligence community in the run-up to war. What we didn’t know is he had been one of them.

Interviews with Iraqis who were abused by soldiers: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=e4e_1172046239 You know… If I was an Iraqi, I’d make it a point to defend my country with lethal force against anyone who exploits my family and friends. The insurgency will only grow. It will not shrink.

If we spend billions to fight a war on terror because terrorists are a threat to our life, and if the flu kills 20,000 Americans every year, then I must ask: Why are we not spending the money we spend on Iraq on universal health care? If the purpose of the war on terror is to protect human lives, aren’t there cheaper ways to do so? Obviously the real reasons for the war on are not what the administration likes to say they are.
Please don’t respond with arguments against universal health care. Americans are less healthy on average
than many countries that provide it. I’m not interested in that argument for the moment. I am interested in the fact that the money we spend to save 1 live from terrorism could save untold numbers of people from things as simple as the flu.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The Bush administration hopes to resettle about 7,000 Iraqi refugees to the United States this year, the State Department said Wednesday.
Am I the only one who sees a tremendous problem with this?
First, Iraq had no connection to Al Queda.
Then, we attacked them using a fake WMD argument and a fake Bin Laden connection argument, which has since been officially refuted when Bush himself said “they have nothing to do with each other” (I’ll find the clip on youtube if you don’t believe me!).
The, Al Queda actually came to Iraq because we were there! Then, we let more soldiers get killed than the september 11th attacks. Then, we killed more innocent Iraqi civilians than all Al Queda attacks combined, ever.
NOW, we’re going to take 7,000 citizens into our country?
So are we supposed to kill them, or naturalize them? We have killed so many innocents in Iraq because WE AREN’T SURE WHO IS THE TERRORIST, AND WHO ISN’T. Now, we’re going to assume that we can get it right for these 7,000 refugees?
Is that sort of like admitting there aren’t terrorists in Iraq? Or is that more like admitting we don’t care if terrorists enter our borders?
You be the judge, but this reeks of doublethink and self-contradiction to me.
