Cheney Marks Tenth Anniversary of Pretending There Was Reason to Invade Iraq
Posted by Andy Borowitz
HOUSTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a sombre ceremony attended by former members of the Bush administration, the former Vice-President Dick Cheney marked the tenth anniversary of making up a reason to invade Iraq.
The ceremony, held on the grounds of the Halliburton Company headquarters, brought together the former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the former Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, and other key members of the lying effort.
Calling the assembled officials “profiles in fabrication,” Mr. Cheney praised them for their decade of dedication to a totally fictitious rationale.
“Making up a reason to invade a country is the easy part,” Mr. Cheney told them.“Sticking to a pretend story for ten years—that is the stuff of valor.”
Mr. Cheney added that their “steadfast charade had raised the bar for all future administrations.”
“When it is time to invade Iran or Venezuela, will the President have the will to make up an entirely fake reason to do it?” he asked.“That remains to be seen.”
The ceremony ended on an emotional note, as Mr. Cheney placed a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown W.M.D.
Former President George W. Bush, who was said to be otherwise engaged, was represented at the event by a nude self-portrait.

Remember that day we went to the doctor when we were 9 and the doctor told mom you weren't a virgin anymore, and then you said you'd slipped while riding a bicycle, and then everybody kind of looked at each other and shrugged? Sure, that makes sense...

This means nothing to Obama voters/Democrats. They just want their free stuff the we worked for.

Tea Partier On Lead Up To Iraq War:‘We Have To Trust Our Leaders’
Months after suggesting that President Barack Obama "doesn't love America the way we do," a prominent tea party leader on Tuesday made a case for placing trust in the commander-in-chief during a discussion about the intelligence failures that lead to the Iraq War.
Amy Kremer, chairwoman of the Tea Party Express, told CNN that former President George W. Bush wasn't the only elected official making a case for the 2003 U.S.-led invasion and said that the citizenry can "never have enough intelligence." But ultimately, Kremer argued, the American people have no choice but to show some faith in the president.
"The American people, I don't think, have any alternative but to believe our president. That's why he's been elected," Kremer said. "And I certainly hope we never go down this road ever again because you never wanna lose any lives and there's always unintended consequences."

The blood of these soldiers is on the bloody hands of Obama, as are the maimings. Every lost life there since he took over has been wasted. All of the maimings and amputations are his fault as well, a waste.
Where the hell is Code pink when you need them?
Where are the anti war protesters who hounded Bush for years?
Where's the LSM leading off the nightly news with the deaths of soldiers?
AWOl, they don't care one bit about dead and maimed soldiers when a democrat, a black democrat is in charge.

"Once near a Nineveh hotel Uday saw a pretty young girl no older than fifteen. He found her attractive and had her kidnapped. Uday raped the girl who lay silently and
then let her go, bruised and bleeding to stumble back to the hotel to find her parents.
“It turns out the girl had been deaf since birth,” remembers Latif.“She tried desperately to communicate what had happened to guests in the hotel lobby, but couldn’t make her hysterical, silent crying be understood.”
When Uday’s was informed he commanded his bodyguards to grab her again so she wouldn’t make trouble for him. They took her to the nearby forest and gang raped her before killing her and burying the body".

Boy, that sounds terrible! How awful! Of course... when things sound too bad to be true... there's often a republican around, or Fox News... so, um, who reported all this exactly? Cause I sorta remember... what was it... something about Iraqi soldiers retreating from Kuwait and taking babies out of incubators which they could then steal and cart back to Baghdad...
"Hey, man, check this out, baby incubators. Let's steal them, tie them to a tank and cart them back to Iraq so we can... well, grow pot or something..."
It's peculiar how these sorts of tales always show up around the time our heroes are out burying live Iraqis with bulldozers and dropping 2000 lb bombs (booms?) on residential neighborhoods? What's a girl to believe?

Kristol’s Bizarre History Lesson
...Kristol’s recommendation is also politically disastrous for Republicans in the present. He writes:
The task of GOP political leaders is to educate the public about the dangers of the world and to inspire people to rise above their weariness.
If the last decade tells us anything about what sort of “education” the public would be receiving from Republican hawks on this subject, it is would be better for all concerned if they didn’t bother. It would be refreshing if Republicans would make an effort to educate the public about the dangers of the world instead of always misinforming them and exaggerating those dangers to justify an exorbitant, unnecessarily large military budget. Telling Republicans to ignore the public’s war weariness is extremely poor advice, since ignoring the public’s attitude toward current wars has contributed to three election defeats and blinded them to the fact that their long-held advantage on national security vanished years ago. If Republicans follow Kristol’s advice, they will most likely be condemning themselves to more defeats at the polls and to increasing irrelevance in policy debates. By the end of his article, Kristol has veered into self-parody with his insistence that more willpower is all that is required. If Republicans are want to avoid the same fate, they’ll ignore what he tells them.

brutal rapist with an obsession for beautiful women.”
Every day Uday Hussein and his bodyguards drove around the university and the girls’ schools until the president's son saw a girl he fancied. He would stop her and
ask her to spend the night with him. If she refused his bodyguards would grab her and bring her back to the palace.
There Uday would rape the girl. If she resisted, after he was done, he would give her to the whole team of bodyguards. If she was really a lot of trouble, like one architectural student named Nahle Sabet who had the nerve to publicly reject him, Uday would throw her naked to his pack of wild dogs which ripped her to pieces while he watched, drinking champagne and laughing.
No woman was safe. One day Uday saw two newlyweds walking hand in hand. He wanted the woman and his bodyguards grabbed the couple.
Saad Abd al-Razzek Nihaya was an Iraqi army officer decorated for bravery in the Iran-Iraq War but that didn’t help him or his new wife.
Uday took the girl to a hotel suite. She pleaded with him not to defile her - she had only been married yesterday. Uday beat her until she was bloody then raped her."
If only Uday had been all white.
