There’s simply no upside to the War in Iraq.
America would have been better off, and safer, if they had never invaded.
The legacy of George W Bush:
… the journalist stood up and threw a shoe from about 20 feet away. Bush ducked, and it narrowly missed his head. The second shoe came quickly, and Bush ducked again while several Iraqis grabbed the man and dragged him to the floor.
In Iraqi culture, throwing shoes at someone is a sign of contempt. Iraqis whacked a statue of Saddam with their shoes after U.S. marines toppled it to the ground following the 2003 invasion. …
This is a farewell kiss, you dog!
No doubt Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt, is a hero now in the Middle East.
Once the Americans quit, they’ll be blamed for decades for not staying.
