War is unwinnable when you don’t play to win

Saturday, 20 May 2017

Here’s something meeting the legal definition of obscenity: George W. Bush aka Bush 43 aka Dubya, who took up painting as a hobby, made a book of portraits of veterans wounded in wars he’s responsible for prolonging and the gay kenyan muslim for losing.

I supported the Iraq war because for 12 years saddam was a disruptive asshole who thumbed his nose at the world and whose antics were no longer tolerable after 9/11.

The issue which was never addressed before, during or after, was what to do with Iraq once saddam was eliminated.

The correct answer was to make Iraq a US territory divided into 3 states and ruled with an iron fist, while seizing enough oil to pay for the whole thing.

None of that happened. We never achieved (or declared) victory, unless you count neocons’ Endless War Welfare Program for the enrichment of the “Defense” Department as winning. (Even filthy proto-SJW communists against “all” war deserve partial credit for their opposition.)

The year we truly lost Iraq was 2005, when we let Iraqis make their new government an “islamic democracy” when no such thing can exist. islam is sharia, sharia is islam; there is no “moderate” or reasonable version of sharia. If the USA honored the Second Amendment with the same inflexibility as sharia, we’d have open carry in all 50 states (and way less crime).

There’s little else to say, except a repeat of the conclusion of the first paragraph: Republicans prolong wars they have no intention of winning and democrats lose winnable wars on purpose.
