Which sunday morning shows are these jokers going to be on?
Bloody tiring is more like it. :(
Rats jumping off a sinking ship, so much for loyalty. Somebody should tell these "neoconservatives" that nation building never was a tenet of what constitutes conservative foreign policy, and it wasn't just the implementation that was flawed, but the policy itself. I wonder which one of these idiots thought forcing democracy upon a bunch of culturally backward and volatile Islamic societies was such a bright idea? Critisizing the administration now for their implementing the very policies they were clamoring for before shows a total lack of integrity and character, and an unwillingness to accept responsibility for their misguided vision they were vigorously promoting. Richard Perle can go to hell as far as I am concerned.
The neo-cons tick me off. It was their unrealistic expectations of the Iraqi people's ability to actually behave like westerners that gave us irrational expectations that this would be easy. All the cakewalk crap, and now that they were proven wrong, and it is a difficult mission they are blaming the President for their bad prognostications.
What little punks.
Although we carried out a brilliant campaign to "conquer Iraq" and capture Saddam, our followup does appear to be lacking. Are we using our technology to ensure minimal casualties? That is, we seem to have multiple layers of complex rules of engagement where we punish our own to the delight of the enemy (Pendleton 8 & others); we do not seem to be using our technology to minimize our own casualities (MOAB, failure to bomb certain buildings being used for weapons storage, and places for the enemy to hide), reconnoiter policies, interrogation policies, etc. Are we too quick to arrest our own military for doing their job too well (thanks to Murtha an his ilk).
traitors and opportunists is probably a more accurate statement.
Well, goooooolly, ain't he smart? Yeah, and if I knew last weeks winning lottery numbers before they were picked I'd be rich too. So what?
I don't remember a single pundit who said, "Yeah, defeating Saddamm's military will be relatively easy, but terrorists will start blowing up people in the streets and it'll be hard to kill them down, especially when the MSM will be rooting for the terrorists to win."
Dasher, let me put my reaction to what these two did in terms any MP in the Commonwealth would understand immediately:
Shame. Shame. Shame.
I believe this is a quote from one of the guys in the article:
"Some people interviewed for the piece are annoyed because they granted interviews on the condition that the article not appear before the election. Vanity Fair is spinning a series of long interviews detailing the introspection and debate that occurs among responsible policymakers every day into a pre-election hit job. Who doesnt constantly question and reassess? Vanity Fairs agenda was a pre-election hit job, and I guess some of us quoted are at fault for believing too much in integrity."
There never were more than three Neocons.
Already debunked as a lie by subsequent post.
These are the same people we are listening to scream about IRAN...?!
There is some news out ther somewhere that this ain't so true
