Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blasted Republicans yesterday for suggesting that the US needed to invade Iraq, again.
Second time’s the charm.
As I wrote the other day, there’s growing concern all around about Al-Qaeda-linked insurgents in Iraq taking over more cities in the north, and even posing a threat to Baghdad.
In response to all that, former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal suggesting that President Obama should have never ended the war in Iraq.
No. Cheney should have never started the war in Iraq.
A trillion (or three) dollars, and nearly 4,500 dead US service members, later, Americans aren’t in the mood for reruns of a show that got canceled for lack of ratings.
Reid really lit into Cheney and the Republicans yesterday on the Senate. Now, as you’re watching this, keep in mind that this is Harry Reid. The man is not know for his energizer-bunny personality. But his words are electric.
Do Republicans believe that service men and women from Kentucky and other 49 states across this great country should be inserted in the middle of their civil war? I don’t think so….
This is an Iraqi civil war, and it’s time for the Iraqis to resolve it themselves…
After a decade of war, Americans have had enough….
It’s not worth the blood, the American soldiers.
If there’s one thing this country does not need, it’s that we should be taking advice from Dick Cheney on wars. Being on the wrong side of Dick Cheney is being on the right side of history.
Unfortunately, we already tried it your way. And it was the biggest foreign policy blunder in the history of the country.
