An interesting account of the events leading to the Iraq War.

dr325 please do not read this article as I do not want to be responsible for your head exploding.

e90im and Mantis should don't bother either, it is way beyond your demonstrated ability to grasp.

Didnt have to read any futher than the first line:

"According to an April 2008 poll in U.S. News & World Report, fully 61 percent of American historians agree that George W. Bush is the worst President in our history."

GREAT FIND GANEIL!!!



EDIT: Also, interesting thing is that if I google Arthur Herman, his bio returns less info than if I goole my own name... He must be really credible source...

that may be true now but mark my words. 20 years down the road Bush will be known as one of the strongest presidents we ever had. Since he took power no US soverignty has been attacked. No outside military bases in Saudi Arabia...no more USS Coles......etc etc. He made terrorism a scary practice. Bomb a US area..we bomb a village. Kill 3000 Americans we kill 100,000 of yours Kill 1 or 2 US citizens we kill 100 of yours. He made terrorism so horrific that they are actually thnking twice before commiting these acts. So say what you want about him now but this cowboy has made living in the US a little bit safer

SO???
You're so brainwashed it is not possible to explain.
THere were many, many presidents before Bush that accomplished a term or two without this country being attacked.
To add: I can list many more Western, Developed countries that have better safety record -- WHY?
But 5000 american troops are not coming back home, $1T is not coming to healthcare, thousands of innocent who knows where are dead...
The respect for this country is gone.
So called "terrorism" is used as a tool to accomplish these attrocities around the world, while those killed on 9/11 are ignored.

And finally, your comment about "Kill 1 or 2 US citizens we kill 100 of yours" is not even worth commenting... Just go research about Hitler and Nazis in the WW2 -- you'll find so many similarities about your statement.

I am going to break my own rule and not only read but respond to a comment by dr325i -

Dr. Herman wrote a NY Times best selling book on the Scottish Enlightenment as well as a number of other books, taught history at Georgetown and George Mason University, and is currently with the Smithsonian Institution.

He is in fact, eminently credible.

Down here someone who defaces their truck with stupid slogans or ridiculous paint jobs might qualify.

Does this make you the So Cal version?

Good read, but biased (I understand that it's editorialized).

Unusual that you read such a staunchly 'Jewish' publication, Ganeil. I guess it was posted elsewhere.

I can see why you would support the Zionist, pro-Middle East involvement agenda. Did I read somewhere on here that you're a government contractor?

Why do find it unusual that I read Commentary?

Yes, I am a currently doing what all good retired military officers do; sell back to the military the knowledge it gave me.

Are you Jewish? Most readers of Commentary are Jewish.

Again, it's devoutly pro-Israel, which is why a military contractor would be interested.

No, I am not Jewish but Catholic. I do not have a demographic profile of the average Commentary reader but it is a Jewish founded and focused journal.

FWIW, I was devoutly pro-Israel long before I was a contractor.

Ah, thanks Neil, I missed you too...
Weird though that my name returns more hits on Google than a person who wrote a number of books...

Using photoshop does not make you an idiot. Using photoshop to do that does.
