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!!

Tony Blair's Iraq comments 'unhinged'

"I can understand that he feels very, very shattered and guilty... but my general message would be to put a sock in it really. Paper bag on head time is my advice" - Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, 16 June 2014
Boris Johnson: Tony Blair's Iraq comments 'unhinged'
16 June 2014 - Boris Johnson has described Tony Blair's argument that the violent insurgency in Iraq has nothing to do with the 2003 invasion as "unhinged".

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, the Mayor of London says the former prime minister is undermining the case for "serious and effective intervention".

He described the invasion as a "tragic mistake" and a "misbegotten folly".

Mr Blair was prime minister when forces invaded Iraq in 2003 on the basis that it had weapons of mass destruction.

On Sunday, Mr Blair said there would still be a "major problem" in Iraq now even if Saddam Hussein had not been toppled in 2003.

Mr Blair insisted the current crisis was an issue that "affects us all" and urged more western intervention in the area. read more>>>

Iraq crisis: US could team-up with Iran - live updates
16 June 2014 - It is almost impossible to think of a single benign outcome from the US-led invasion of Iraq, according to Simon Jenkins, but rapprochement between the US and Iran could emerge as one silver lining.

This crumb of diplomatic comfort is a welcome dash of sanity. Iran is by far the most powerful player in the emerging Sunni-Shia conflict. During America's 2012 presidential election, Republican candidates vied with each other over the number of bombs they wanted to rain down on Tehran in what seemed little more than crude war lust. America's drone operators continue to massacre far more Muslims than any Sunni atrocity.

So perhaps realpolitik has at last come to the aid of a respect for the integrity and sovereignty of foreign states. For these blessings we must give thanks.
