“The same foreign policy ‘experts’ who lied us into the Iraq [W]ar are now telling us we must re-invade Iraq to deal with the disaster caused by their invasion!” the three-time presidential hopeful exclaimed in an op-ed published on the Ron Paul Institute official site. “They cannot admit they were wrong about the invasion being a ‘cakewalk’ that would pay for itself, so they want to blame last week’s events on the 2011 US withdrawal from Iraq. But the trouble started with the 2003 invasion itself, not the 2011 troop withdrawal. Anyone who understands cause and effect should understand this.” - Ron Paul
I swear to you all the Third Invasion of Iraq is coming. This time it will be under the guise of humanitarian aide to topple the de facto Islamic State occupying major parts of Iraq and Syria. One night you will see President Obama give his speech justify the need for a third invasion, something along the lines that the United States cannot stand back. And he will be applauded, and praised, and the people will once again be on board with yet another invasion of Iraq. But soon after reports will emerge questioning the effectiveness of the operation, and reports claiming civilians deaths by American strikes, and the people will find themselves wondering why they thought it was a good idea to support another war. You can see this shit coming from miles away.
mark my words: the Third Iraq War will officially begin in late 2014-early 2015 and last into the next presidency of Hilary Clinton/Paul Ryan
and Afghanistan will fall to a surge of Taliban forces after NATO combat troops leave, which will cause another identical crisis a la ISIS and justify extension of the war
What have the last 15 years of war taught us? That incompetent administrations, 220 thousand dead civilians, $3.5 trillion price tag, resulted in the loss of the two wars and created dire consequences that is causing the extensions of these wars.
"b-but WMDs! b-b-but mah freedums! b-b-b teh terrorits! bb-b-but humanitarian reasons! b-b-b- obama said! b-bbb-b-b-but"
