What We Learned in Iraq

Per DagNabbit's ramblings below: As usual, DangStupid has it completely wrong, on all fronts. 9/11 was indeed due to the idiotic wall put up by that noted Progressive national security genius Jamie Gorelick. The seeds to the destruction of the economy were sown by yet more Progressives with their economic perversions of the housing market. Moronic voters sending Democrat Party majorities to both houses of Congress sealed our fate in 2006. Please spin again, DangStupid. Perhaps you'll lurch uncontrollably on to a correct assertion someday -- rather like given enough time, a chimpanzee could eventually write Shakespeare. Admittedly, I'm not optimistic.

Whew. I am so glad to know that the blame for 9/11 rests on a memo trying to restrain the US gov't to constitutional actions, and not on Bush et al. ignoring all the warning signs of an imminent attack.
And I am glad to know that it was only the Demos who pushed to end Glass-Steagall and then pushed the housing bubble. (I assume that the Demos also insisted that the banks keep terrible mortgage records, engage in robo-signing, etc.)
Ten years ago this week, Americans were about to be introduced to a strange new concept, as they awaited the U.S. war to bring regime change in Iraq. Coined by American military officers, it encapsulated a situation in which everything went right until everything went wrong. The term was "catastrophic success."

But before the war began, supporters were bursting with confidence. Vice President Dick Cheney predicted that "we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators." The Pentagon expected to withdraw most troops by summer's end. Reconstruction would be a bargain because Iraq would pay for it with oil revenues.

Wrong, wrong and wrong...
