This Day in American History
Labels: Ronald Reagan quote
While Bin Laden is still at large, it seems Reagan's words carry little weight.
I suggest you take a piece of paper; make 2 columns; label Column A "positive results from the invasion of Iraq"; label the Column B "negative results from the war in Iraq;" then look at the results after taking off your rose colored glasses.
Or just say this: "Osama bin Laden destroyed the WTCs so I will invade Iraq," until you repent of your sins.
Well of course those are good things, together w/ various other baddies who have been move on or incarcerated, but then we have a long list of Iraqis who are anonymous to you and me who have also been moved on; or have been displaced; we have Iraq's infrastructure which was in bad shape when we invaded and is probably worse now and as near as I can figure, we are no longer trying to improve it b/c of security issues; we have sectarian violence, whether improved by the surge or no; we have a country whos prospects for becoming a failed state are very high; we no longer have an situ foil for Iran.
Should I go on?
