Will the people who made the Iraq mess ever be held accountable?

From the New York Times:

The United States spent more than $1 trillion and lost about 4,500 troops in the effort to make Iraq the cornerstone of a Western-facing Middle East. But today, Iran’s influence is paramount.

The only way to curtail American military adventures abroad is to hold those who make failed countries accountable for their decisions and incompetence.

Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld should be in jail for what they did to Iraq.

And by the way $1 trillion would be an awful lot of health care for Americans that need it.

Just fucking wait for Trump and Co to provoke the next intifada

From Reuters here:

“Nowhere has the UN’s failure been more consistent and more outrageous than in its bias against our close ally Israel,” Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said in the opening remarks for her appearance on Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“Any honest assessment also finds an institution that is often at odds with American national interests and American taxpayers,” the speech says.

Blah blah blah blah.

Don’t expect any sort of feminine, peace mongering out of the new UN ambassador Nikki Haley.  Clearly her vagina is full of cruelty and she’s ready to rock.

I can see how between this piece of shit and the new U.S. ambassador to Israel who is an even bigger piece of shit how it’s going to be 12-18 months until Israel and the Palestinians will be killing each other at a ratio of 50 dead Palestinians for every dead Israeli.

I guess this is what people want.  A bloody muscular foreign policy instead of putting Netanyahu in a cage where he belongs.

Oh Joe Biden, you sad Spook Busting motherf*cker

From CNBC here:

Joe Biden also said it was “dangerous” for President-elect Donald Trump to publicly criticize the U.S. intelligence community.

Biden also said it’s “absolutely mindless” for a president not to have confidence in or listen to the intelligence agencies.

I’m with President Cheese Doodle on this one.  There is no track record to have confidence in the CIA.  It is a nest of lying vipers and self serving assholes.  To see Democrats flock to defend people who should not be defended is pretty sad.

 

Do Obama and his sycophants now regret not prosecuting torturers?

From The Intercept here:

DONALD TRUMP MAY select Jose Rodriguez, one of the primary architects of the George W. Bush torture program, to run the Central Intelligence Agency, according to a law firm with close ties to Trump.

Rodriguez, the former director of the National Clandestine Service, helped developed the CIA black sites, secret prisons operated in foreign countries where interrogators used a range of torture tactics, including the use of “waterboarding,” the simulated drowning technique once used by the Khmer Rouge and Nazi agents to glean information from detainees.

This sadist was passed over in favor of a Benghazi obsessive but we can be sure that Rodriguez will either be in the Spook House or all over tv talking up torture.

And part of the karma for that goes to Obama.  Not because he’s black but because he declined to put these assholes behind bars where they belong.

He thought it was best to not prosecute and maybe in the short term it was, but if these guys all had criminal records and were barred from government service we wouldn’t be in this situation now.

 

Extremely imperial, I mean democratic….

From Real News Network here:

Back on September 5th of 2006, Hillary Clinton running to be elected for her senate seat in New York was doing the rounds of this particular location she was speaking to the Jewish Press in Brooklyn where she had this to say about their elections in Palestinian territories in 2006.

HILLARY CLINTON: I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake. And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.

Just kick back and bask in the imperial wisdom of the Pantsuit!

Oh no, you can’t blame the trio of pricks for everything that ails the Pantsuit!

From Slate here:

And so we, the women of America, find ourselves watching in horror and rage as the repulsive sexual behavior of three pathetic men threatens to obstruct the election of a supremely capable first female president and her equally brilliant No. 2. It would be an extraordinary feat of poetic injustice if the most qualified female presidential candidate in history got within a nose hair’s breadth of the office just to be thwarted by a trio of men who’ve disrespected their marriages and prioritized their own sexual proclivities over their wives’ careers and ambitions.

Here is a list of Hillary Clinton decisions that have cost her a lot of votes that have nothing to do with Bubba J., the Wiener, and the giant groping baboon Trump:

A man did not make Hillary Clinton vote for the Iraq war.

A man did not make her for fracking and for going around the world spreading fracking wherever she went.

A man did not make her go down to Wall Street and give paid speeches after she was Secretary of State when she already knew she was running for President.

A man did not make Hillary Clinton fuck over the progressive wing of the Democratic Party — telling environmentalists to get a life, etc

Did a man make her set up an email server when she was Secretary of State?  Did she have no responsibility for that colossal fuckup?

Did a man make her reach some sort of demented conclusion that she could have a private position which she would reveal with her rich Wall Street friends and a public position which is just for show?

Did a man tell her to advocate for the overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya and then go on television and say ‘We came, we conquered, he died!”? Nope.

Did a man tell her to go out in public and use the word ‘superpredator’ thereby alienating an unknown number of young African American votes?

Just because Hillary Clinton has endured sexist attacks from assholes please do not step into the public sphere with this nonsense that if Clinton is not elected next week it’s due to the penises around her and her right hand assistant?

Did Hillary Clinton help put Assange in jail in London?

A lot of criticism has been levelled at Wikileaks and Assange for the complete email dump of Podesta’s correspondence.  Some folks think the personal email should have been screened out and only ones of public interest should have found their way to the intertoobz.

I get that.

I think Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State exerted all sorts of pressure on various countres that ended up putting Assange where he’s currently imprisoned.  If I were Assange I would loathe Hillary Clinton and I would be out for blood.

Obama and Clinton surely didn’t hesitate to ruin this guy’s life so life’s a bitch and he’s getting his revenge now.
