Why We Listen To The American Right On Foreign Policy Is Beyond Me

Just over 10 years ago, George Bush sent the American military in to invade Iraq, saying that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and was linked to Al Qaida. The Americans were wrong on both counts.

After 134,000 civilians were killed in the invasion, after the United States treasury is on the hook for up to $4 trillion in war related costs, after untold misery, graft, corruption and stupidity … Al-Qaeda has taken control of Fallujah, a major city in Iraq.

The Republican Party of the United States is Al Qaida’s biggest indirect recruiter.

Oh yeah, you know who thought invading Iraq was a great idea? You’d never guess…

  1. If you read about American foreign policy , before FD Roosevelt; it would suggest, that policy was to NOT Attack another country unless they attacked here (N.America), 1st.

    Japan , hitting Pearl Harbour , was a suicide mission, why the f would you send a fleet of yer best pilots, 4100 miles away?

    rumour,, Pearl was the 1st 911/ false flag

    To make sure the foreign policy was relevant / observed & go to war 2 years into it.

    They on tv said it was 19 Arab hijackers for the 911 blabla, why the f did a Invasion of Iraq happen?

    After nuking Japan 2wice… best buddies now & a semi radiactive oly games coming…
