Noonan: Can the Republican Party Recover From Iraq?

There are 40 comments on the Wall Street Journal story from Mar 21, 2013, titled Noonan: Can the Republican Party Recover From Iraq?. In it, Wall Street Journal reports that:

The air has been full of 10th-anniversary Iraq war retrospectives. One that caught my eye was a smart piece by Tom Curry, national affairs writer for NBC News, who wrote of one element of the story, the war's impact on the Republican party: "The conflict not only transformed" the GOP, "but all of American politics." Did the Iraq war hurt the GOP? ... (more)

like muslims?
hey. let's look at it another way...
have you ever considered the possibility that a majority of people in the usa support the war against the muslims who committed 9/11?
can you do that?
if you can do that, then, come on... is it possible that your "complex" mind can believe that a majority of muslims support what bin laden was doing?
if you cannot.. there's not much for us to debate. you are too smart for me.
What is evil? The hijackers thought they were attacking evil. Evil is subjective depending upon one's point of view right?

Pay attention my ass! As I recall the cowardice demoRATIC party VOTED for an invasion and RAN from such a vote to keep the zionist/Israeli goal intact and that IS a nation divided. It's all for Israel baby! Ever since December 23, 1913 and the federal reserve act 100 years ago, followed by the 1913 'revenue act' to fund all the wars ever since, followed by the balfour declaration. This nation was STOLEN for a sliver of land in a far away desert. So please do try and keep up!

I don't dispute this nation has been stolen from the general public by the aristocrats. Where I disagree is you seem to think all the aristocrats are Democrats concerned about Israel and the Republicans concerned about Oil companies are the "good guys"!! I'm dropping the BS flag on that crap!!!

At our astronomy gatherings, I met a fine family, in which the wife was from Turkey. I mentioned that I was Native Tribe. She stated that the people of present Turkey, crossed Siberia & were the ones that entered the present North America. Looking at her anew, I immediately saw her resemblance to Native Tribal members. Of course, DNA has confirmed her story.

Probably the only people with a legitimate claim to being "Native" to this hemisphere were the clovis people who were wiped out by the same mysterious event that wiped out all North American large mammals including the ancestors of horses, camels, the Short Faced Bear and North American Lion.

Why you gettin' self-righteous about what your immediate ancestors, molesters, & killers did to 30,000 Native Tribes around the world. & why would your attack on an off-spring of murdered, tortured, purposefully diseased & starved to death Native Tribal members allay your present guilt.

That's my point exactly .. I did nothing to YOU, so stop your whinning, silly little beeoch. Think about what your immediate ancestors did to Kennewick man and his people. Feel your own guilt.

euros & transplanted euros are good at sidetracking the guilt of their own mechanized culture. Even today as they still suppress Native Tribes around the world, euros & transplanted euros portray themselves as God's loving messengers & carrying a white man's burden. But that they are no longer just held up in europe & taking others lands & lives, tells the story of their ravenous, bestial, & mechanical appetites, over a half a millenium.

Yet you set a double standard for yourself, ignoring the fact that you butchered Kennewick man and likely his people as well. How convenient for you.

"How the hell does the blame fall squarely on the republican party"

WOW! Deflect ownership much, because THEY decided to invade and occupy a country and they did it based on a pack of BS Lies, that's why!

You have some catching up to do!!!!

"The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was an American think tank based in Washington, D.C. established in 1997 as a non-profit educational organization founded by William Kristol and Robert Kagan. The PNAC's stated goal is "to promote American global leadership."[1] Fundamental to the PNAC were the view that "American leadership is both good for America and good for the world" and support for "a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity."[2] The PNAC exerted influence on high-level U.S. government officials in the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush and affected the Bush Administration's development of military and foreign policies, especially involving national security and the Iraq War.[3][4]

The goal of regime change in Iraq remained the consistent position of PNAC throughout the 1997-2000 Iraq disarmament crisis.[6][7]

Richard Perle, who later became a core member of PNAC, was involved in similar activities to those pursued by PNAC after its formal organization. For instance, in 1996 Perle composed a report that proposed regime changes in order to restructure power in the Middle East. The report was titled A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm and called for removing Saddam Hussein from power, as well as other ideas to bring change to the region. The report was delivered to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.[8] Two years later, in 1998, Perle and other core members of the PNAC - Paul Wolfowitz, R. James Woolsey, Elliot Abrams, and John Bolton - "were among the signatories of a letter to President Clinton calling for the removal of Hussein."[8] Clinton did seek regime change in Iraq, and this position was sanctioned by the United Nations. These UN sanctions were considered ineffective by the neoconservative forces driving the PNAC.

It was desired by these people, they were taken into the Bush Administration andf they were going to get THEIR WAR on no matter what, so they lied and fooled many into supporting it!!!!
