GUEST,josepp BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? (193* d) RE: BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? 01 May 12


Allan, the day after 9-11 it was obvious to anyone with a brain that we were going into Iraq. We certainly knew we were going in well before 2003. It's not like the invasion was a surprise. Blair could have refused to help. He chose not to. As another British poster on this thread told me (belying your claim that the voters are not responsible), everyone thought Saddam had WMD that could be aimed at the West in 45 minutes. And people believed that because Bush and Blair trumpeted the lie to anyone foolish enough to listen. It's plainly obvious the voters share the blame because they reelected Blair in 2005. By that time, what excuse could they offer? Clearly, they still favored the war or at the very least din't regard is to be as big a deal as certain domestic issues that they favored Blair on.

And that's fine as long as they aren't turning around and complaining the the military missions that were run under him--the repercussions of which are still being felt and will for some time. I didn't vote the Bush--couldn't stand him--but as an American I take the blame for my country electing this turd and everything that was done by him. It amazes the collousness of liberals I've gotten into violent arguments with when they refuse to take any blame for what happened in Iraq. The closest I ever came in my life to punching a woman.

You tell that to the Iraqis who had to live through that hell when one asks you what your country is going to do to make up for what it did to them: "Don't blame me, I didn't vote for him." Jesus fuck.
