Would you have invaded Iraq?

May 18, 2015

It seems everyone in commercial new media has only one question. “Knowing what you know today, would you invade Iraq?” I do not know why this is the question? I am not a candidate for any office but I know what is obvious.

I would never have invaded Iraq. In case anyone wonders why, let me state the main reason. I treasure the lives of our military. They risk their lives to defend and protect the U.S.A. in battle and difficult circumstances. We let Iraq sink into the hands of those vowing to kill us. Iraq had a paper army with guys looking to make money, but run from battle. We threw out the professional soldiers of Iraq as if they caught the plague from Saddam Hussein. All of our military died for nothing in Iraq.

This is not funny. This is not something we can pretend did not happen. Those lost and wounded had their sacrifice thrown into the garbage heap. This Viet Nam type of “loss” is all in the hands of our executive branch of our government. Our failed inept diplomacy reflects the weakness and cowardice in our executive branch. Our military were brave and paid the ultimate sacrifice for a retreat from Iraq.

This question is dumb of course, because it will not bring back our dead. However, I have the question now. Do our allies expect our leadership to have any courage? We are forecasting now that the “Junior varsity team” of ISIS or ISIL or DASH or whatever damn name we dream up cannot be conquered without 30 years! That is so dumb. This is the same crew that called them JV. Now the terrorists cannot be conquered by the USA and allies without 30 years of warfare and more death? I do not trust our leadership. I do not believe the excuses from our leadership. I am glad my son came back from Iraq and is no longer in the army to serve under this leadership.

We should have never sent our military into Iraq. We need to wait for a leader to take office in the U.S.A. for facing up to the terrorists and plans of conquest threatening our allies. Drone attacks and targeted murders by special forces do not stop terrorism or conquest. Only armies stop enemies on the march for conquest. General Grant from the civil war understood that war is bloody and brutal. The best plan is to swiftly attack and defeat the opposing forces. This reduces the blood shed by not fighting for 30 years.

General Grant did not rely on only brute force to win. He used telegraph wires to pass scouting information ahead of the battle. He did use lethal swift attacks without excuses for weather, terrain, or being outnumbered. He drank too much, was slovenly in dress, and smoked too much. He would never be chosen today. Our rules are to look good and politically correct. Our rules are not to win.

Lincoln need to end the war.  He promoted a warrior to win.

Lincoln need to end the war. He promoted a warrior to win.

I would never have invaded Iraq. Our motto now is we want to lose. We want to wallow in our guilt. We do not celebrate warriors who kill our enemies. We do not want to offend our enemies. Only evil people kill enemies. We prefer to celebrate deserters and retreat.

    I had written Bush 43, about the very same thing, as the invasin from what I make of it, was retribution of the 1991 attempted assassination of Bush 41, in Iraq, by the Iraqi Secret Service chief who was Sadaam Hussein’s brother-in-law.
