Thanks for the honesty Repukes, it is refreshing to know at least one more ignorant troll on this forum will admit they are what they are. I an ignorant troll also but I am proud of it. My man Obama could not be where he is without people like us. I too admire a man who can destroy an economy, give free beer, food stamps, cell phones and health care to people like us that never worked or even wanted to, and at the same time send military and financial support to terrorist organizations. He is our hero, our idol and the symbol of all the combined ignorance in this country.

Wiki does not mentioned the whole truth.

It omits certain facts from time to time.

Even Generals know what happened in Vietnam.

General Anthony Zinni, USMC,(Ret.) Remarks at CDI Board of Directors Dinner, May 12, 2004 http://tinyurl.com/8ldmo

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 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.

Thanks for sharing, my info came from a history book I bought from a U.K. Student a couple of summers ago. I don't trust wiki's because anyone can edit them just by registering.
Primary source is a first hand account from the person telling the story. Secondary are those accounts made later by other peoples interpretation. When the discussion was going on I doubt 'Stormin Normin' was there, he may have been in Vietnam (he did pull two tours of duty there). The decision was no doubt based on erroneous information, much like our decision to wage war on Saddam Hussein.
When a man punches you from behind, you turn and punch the closest to you right? I understand those decisions, even if I disagree with them. Hind sight is 20/20

My info comes from books, I have a large library. I dropped out of school after 8th grade, I am self educated by reading EVERYTHING I can buy or borrow. I am registered Independent because I believe we give to much authority to any one party when we assign to one side of a ballot.

The Truth:
Vice President Biden and his entourage travelled to London and Paris in February 2013 where they stayed in costly five star hotels. This according to a March 22, 2013 article by ABC News that said that the State Department contracts for the Hyatt Regency London tabulated to $459,338.65 and the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand's tab was $585,000.50.
The article also said, "While the figure may be eye-popping, a State Department official said these costs are par for the course in high-level international trips as they also include accommodations for staff, security details and military personnel."

From 2009 to 2013, the U.S. government has spent $1,188,382 on puppetry-related expenses. Some of the expenses include puppet shows for kids on educational topics. Others include puppet-based research. In 2010, the taxpayer-funded National Science Foundation awarded the University of Central Florida a $199,754 research grant for “Efficient Control and Transmission of Digital Puppetry.”

The UCF website explains the project thusly:

The purpose of this project is to improve the quality of experiences that can be provided by the puppeteering paradigm (more varied behaviors, enhanced quality of service, reduced latency), while simultaneously reducing the barrier to entry (cost and complexity of set-up, cognitive load on puppeteer, need for extensive training).

In February 2013, the taxpayer-funded National Endowment for the Arts invested $25,000 into something called “In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask,” a Minneapolis project that will “support the development of a new work by puppetry artists in the Sampo Box Program.”

In 2009, tax dollars also funded research involving “puppet choreography and automated marionettes” at Northwestern University to the tune of $358,410

Obama Bin Laden says, "I just gave Monsanta new special privileges while America debated Gay Marriage."

"Even the Libertarians were distracted? Not bad."

Anyone not familiar with Monsanta Corp., this is just a few facts. This company gross billions yearly. They have invented a new technique, "a genetically proven seed" which can only be used once by farmers.

This way, our gov. controls the growth of crops. Seeds can be utilized only once and must be purchased every year, thus, increasing spenditures, decreasing profits and controlling the amt. of crops to be grown.

Otherwords: Our gov. will control what a person consumes in food.

P.S. this company also makes herbicides.......deadly herbicides.
