In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

Toadying to bush

Why this toadying to Bush the bungler?

{Lest we forget: George W. Bush is responsible for dragging us into wars in Iraq and Afghanistan}

15th November 2010 - As we mourned the dead of two world wars and more recent conflicts, our Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir David Richards said the ‘war on terror’ can never be won.

The best we can do is keep our Al Qaeda enemies at bay. We’ll be in Afghanistan (invaded in 2001) for the next five years, at least.

As for Iraq (invaded in 2003), that’s likely to remain a bloody mess into the foreseeable future.

Not to mention, of course, the ­everyday threat of terrorism in ­aviation, our transport systems and our cities.

A brilliant prospect, isn’t it? A ‘war on terror’ that will soon havelasted longer than our two world wars combined.

Did anyone realise that an open-ended ‘war on terror’ would be the result of invading Iraq and Afghanistan? Yes, it was said so at the time.

We knew Iraq’s warring tribes would set about each other once Saddam was removed, and we’d seen the mighty Soviet military machine chased out of Afghanistan.

Was there any alternative after the 9/11 attacks on America? Yes, those responsible could have been pursued relentlessly without the distraction of invading two countries, which put the then little-known Al Qaeda group on the map.

Given this background, you’d expect the military genius who declared the war on terror - former U.S. President George W. Bush - would, at the very least, be under house arrest. Not at all! He’s on the up and up - the subject of ­toadying interviews. {read rest}
