Not exactly true.
You are half right Bush is an embarrassent, But,
the difference is Bush is a liar and Paul is a truth teller.
Both parties dislike truth tellers, in collusion with corporate rightwing media and corporate mainstream media they disparaged and ridicule truth tellers.
Remember Ross Perot 1992? Howard Dean 2004? Jon Anderson in 1980?
Ron Paul Authentic Conservative
Ralph Nader Authentic Liberal

Al Qaeda resides in over 60 countries worldwide and the Dictators like in Egypt kept them down.
Now the Islams extremist are FREE because of George W. Bush.
BTW: Iraq had ZERO al Qaeda in 2003 and Saddam was contained and no threat.
Dumbya Bush FREED the Shites in Iraq who are loyal to Iran.

The sixth mistake, and maybe the biggest one, was propping up and trusting the exiles, the infamous "Gucci Guerillas" from London. We bought into their intelligence reports. To the credit of the CIA, they didn't buy into it, so I guess the Defense Department created its own boutique intelligence agency to vet them. And we ended up with a group that fed us bad information. That led us to believe that we would be welcomed with flowers in the streets; that led us to believe that this would be a cakewalk.
When I testified before Congress in 1998, after a grilling from Senator McCain and all those wonderful senators supported the Iraqi Liberation Act, and I told them that these guys are not credible and they are going to lead us into something they we will regret. At that time, they were pushing a plan that Central Command would supply air support and special forces, and we would put it into Iraq, and they would pied piper their way up to Baghdad and the whole place would fall apart. This plan was created by two senate staffers and a retired General. I happened to be the commander of central command, nobody bothered to ask me about how my troops would be used. And they were a little bit upset about me being upset about this.
These exiles did not have credibility inside the country or in the region. Not only did they not have credibility, it was clear that the information they were providing us many times was not correct and accurate. We believed in them. We also brought them in with us and deemed them into the governing council and the reception by Iraqis has been, to say the least, has not been great.

I think the first mistake that was made was misjudging the success of containment. I heard the president say, not too long ago, I believe it was with the interview with Tim Russert that ... I'm not sure ... but at some point I heard him say that "containment did not work." That's not true.
So to say containment didn't work, I think is not only wrong from the experiences we had then, but the proof is in the pudding, in what kind of military our troops faced when we went in there.
The third mistake, I think was one we repeated from Vietnam, we had to create a false rationale for going in to get public support. The books were cooked, in my mind. The intelligence was not there. I testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee one month before the war, and Senator Lugar asked me: "General Zinni, do you feel the threat from Saddam Hussein is imminent?" I said: "No, not at all. It was not an imminent threat. Not even close. Not grave, gathering, imminent, serious, severe, mildly upsetting, none of those."

THE VIEW FROM CENTCOM....So what do former CENTCOM commanders think about the neocons and their war planning? Let's listen in:
General Joseph Hoar, 1991-1994: "Paul Wolfowitz is a very bright guy, but he doesn't know anything about war-fighting, and I suspect he knows less about counterinsurgency operations....I think that the neo-conservatives had their day, by selling to the President the need for invasion of Iraq. I think it's now time for a clean sweep—and it has been for some time, in my judgment—to get rid of these people."
General Anthony Zinni, 1997-2000: He believes the neocons, including Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith, the undersecretary of defense, have hijacked U.S. foreign policy: "In the lead-up to the Iraq war and its later conduct, I saw, at minimum, true dereliction, negligence and irresponsibility; at worst, lying, incompetence and corruption."
General Tommy Franks, 2000-2003: Doug Feith is "the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth."
General Binford Peay III, CENTCOM commander from 1994-1997, seems to have maintained a studious silence about the conduct of the war, perhaps understandable since he's now the chairman of the board of a defense contractor that, among other things, provides ammunition for the Army's Stryker brigades.
Still, that's a pretty remarkable record, isn't it? Three of the past four CENTCOM commanders, the guys who probably understand the military requirements of a war in the Middle East better than any other humans on the planet, think the people who planned this war are completely incompetent. Quite an accomplishment.

The ads were still a lie. Chrysler NEVER denied Jeeps sold in China were going to be made in China. What the ad said was that the production of American made Jeeps was going to be closed and moved to China. To this day that still is a lie.

The truth is most of the Middle East hates the West because they blame us for their Dictators which is partly true.
I agree with your assessment about culture and religion.
George W. Bush Freed the Billions of Islamic Masses and they still despise Dumbya Bush.
Daddy Bush kept American military on Saudi land after 1991 and WTC Bombing happened on Feb. 26, 1993.
GEORGE DUMBYA BUSH in 2003 Took down a dictator in Iraq which had nothing to do with September 11, 2001, and caused the Arab Spring December 18, 2010
Bring Back The Dictators because Dumbya Bush freed the Middle East.
Enclosed are 4 more liberals in YOUR opinion against war in Iraq.

Excerpt from "Why We Didn't Remove Saddam" by George Bush [Sr.] and Brent Scowcroft, Time (2 March 1998):
While we hoped that popular revolt or coup would topple Saddam, neither the U.S. nor the countries of the region wished to see the breakup of the Iraqi state. We were concerned about the long-term balance of power at the head of the Gulf. Trying to eliminate Saddam, extending the ground war into an occupation of Iraq, would have violated our guideline about not changing objectives in midstream, engaging in "mission creep," and would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. Apprehending him was probably impossible. We had been unable to find Noriega in Panama, which we knew intimately. We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq. The coalition would instantly have collapsed, the Arabs deserting it in anger and other allies pulling out as well. Under those circumstances, furthermore, we had been self-consciously trying to set a pattern for handling aggression in the post-cold war world. Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the U.N.'s mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression we hoped to establish. Had we gone the invasion route, the U.S. could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land. It would have been a dramatically different--and perhaps barren--outcome.

I was at a women's bible study the other night, one of the women stated they felt something is getting ready to happen--something big and evil........all the other women said they have been feeling the same way.
We can not trust either party, both are blaming each other while they both agree to tax the American workers and raise the debt limit to create more debt.
They need ALL to be taken to the town square or whatever that city has who they represented, tarred, feathered and hung, just like it used to be.
Taxation without representation from both parties.

And I believe you Repubs must hide under your beds at night. You been talking this shit for 30 years and it has never happened and will never happen. With all the Bush spying tech that was put in place to keep a watch on your kind, you'll simply be put in a prison without trial as a threat to National Security. Thanks to Bush and the Patriot Act.
PS. Can you Repubs just take a minute to ponder what would have been said if Obama had put in place the Patriot Act instead of Bush. You would all be digging holes to hide in.
PSS. Zom Woman I'm telling you again. Obama can see you though that computer screen. I read it on the internet. The Government has kept it a secret.
