"A pretty good deal"?

"taking out Saddam Hussein turned out to be a pretty good deal,"

It was?

Let's see now.

"At least 67 people have been killed after a truck bomb exploded in north-eastern Baghdad, Iraqi officials say."

"A series of bomb explosions in Baghdad has killed at least 26 people and injured a further 67, reports Reuters, citing Iraqi police and medics.
The bloodiest attack occurred Monday in mainly Shiite Muslim Abu Dsheer district in the south of the capital, where a car bomb blasted near a crowded market killing seven and injuring 18 people. "

"While participating in Ashura holiday rituals today, many Shi’ites became easy targets for Sunni militants. Ashura commemorates the martyrdom of Imam Hussein and symbolizes the schism between Shi’ites and Sunnis. Nevertheless, about two million pilgrims safely reached the holy city of Karbala for observances there.

At least 67 people were killed and 152 more were wounded.

In Saidiya, a suicide bomber dressed in a military uniform attacked Shi’ite pilgrims recreating a historic battle. At least 32 people were killed and 80 more were wounded. A second suicide bomber, possibly in nearby Baquba, killed 16 more and wounded another 27 pilgrims. Because Diyala is a confessionally mixed province, it has been the scene of many attacks on Shi’ite pilgrims, not only this year but in years past as well.

Nine people were killed and 28 more were wounded when two I.E.D.s exploded in Suwayra/Hafriya at a tent offering refreshments to pilgrims.

In Mosul, an I.E.D. killed two soldiers and wounded two more. A security official escaped an assassination attempt. Mortars targeting pilgrims wounded a policeman instead. A bomb wounded three more policemen. A bomb at a policeman’s home killed his son and wounded his wife.

Four gunmen were killed and three policemen were wounded in a clash.
Gunmen killed an imam at his home in Baquba.

Twin bombings in Kirkuk wounded five people.

A child was wounded during a rocket attack in Tal Afar.
An I.E.D. in Tikrit left one policeman with injuries."

BAGHDAD (AP) — An attack by the Islamic State group on a crowded marketplace in Iraq's eastern Diyala province has killed 115 people, including women and children, in one of the deadliest single attacks in the country in the past decade."

"One week: 34 American soldiers killed in Iraq. "

"BAGHDAD—Three American soldiers were killed and one was wounded in two separate attacks in Iraq on Saturday, the U.S. military said.

The deadlier of the attacks happened in the morning when a man dressed in an Iraqi army uniform opened fire at U.S. soldiers while they were conducting a training session for Iraqi forces at a military base on the outskirts of the volatile northern city of Mosul, Col. Barry A. Johnson, spokesman for the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, said."

"Iraq War Deaths Exceed Vietnam War Numbers."

"In the deadliest incident for American soldiers in Iraq in over two years, five troops were killed in an early-morning rocket or mortar attack on a base in Baghdad. Though the 47,000 American soldiers stationed in Iraq no longer have a combat role, MSNBC reports that they "still come under almost daily attack by rockets and mortars in their bases and get shot at and targeted by roadside bombs when they move outside of their bases." 

Do you still think that taking out Saddam was a "pretty good deal", Jeb?

I guess maybe we were all wrong and W is actually the smarter of the two. It doesn't seem like Jeb! can get out of his own way.

FYI, W Bush was not that dumb. In fact, he was and is very bright. You don't get a degree from a prestigious college by being stupid.

You leftists try to make W look bad in order to make Obama look good. But your strategy failed miserably.

Obama can't hold a candle to Bush. Even Ben Carson has admitted as much.

Dear Brother Field, have you seen Straight out of Compton? You should see it and take PC and uts with you. It's not a very long movie. In fact, I demanded a partial refund because the movie was too damn short.

Anyway, you need to go see it because it points to the demise of the bm. As a bm I was very disappointed.

Did you see Mission Impossible? Now that's where you actually get your money's worth.

Mission Impossible?

You mean like teaching blacks to read?

...Or getting blacks to listen to something besides that mindless rap shit?

... Or to stop shooting each other constantly over nothing?

... Or to stop blaming whites who never had anything to do with their ancestors' oppression for everything?

I don't think even Tom Cruise could accomplish those missions!

Jeb is clueless as to how to parry the Iraq questions, which is all he wants to do. Either the strategy session with his p.r. people never took place, or he bungled their advice, which is just as likely.

The only presidential candidate lamer than Hillary is Jeb. If they're the ultimate face-off, it's going to be a contest of rival ineptitudes. Only one of those dissolved Planned Parenthood and disenfranchised 10,000 voters in his home state, however.

It wasn't a "pretty good deal"

It was a mega great deal! For them of course.

"To the victor belong the spoils" Free petroleum! What could be better? Let's face it, oil makes this half of the hemisphere go round! Planes, cars,boats,all kinds of transportation, heating, ac, I could go on, but you get the picture!

Would we rather walk,be cold etc.? No right?

As whoever it was says,(plz help me out here Anon :) "The strong eat the weak" Who hits first eats better:)"
"To the victor go the spoils" and so on and so forth!

So in conclusion "war is a necessary evil" (by whoever it was that said it :)

I am getting real tired of this shit. I am Black and you know it. Straight Out of Compton was not a good movie and I can't stand rap. I come from the 60s: MLK, Malcolm X, Panthers, Black Muslims, "I'm Black and I'm Proud".....

Rap talking about hos, yo mama, niggers are signs of self-hatred. As a bm I really don't like to hear this shit.

Field, I have always suspected you are an undercover uncle tom. You, PC, Yisheng, and PX have no black pride.

I have shit taste in everything, especially all the bland, flavorless food I eat.

Bill said...

Wow, FieldNegro copied/pasted a lot of words about Iraq.

Let me remind FieldNegro what the Vice President said...

Iraq Will Be 'One of the Greatest Achievements' of This Administration

To claim Iraq is a failure is to mock One of the Greatest Achievements' of This Administration.

As if I need FieldNegro's help in mocking this administration.

I met a white guy and he told me that the Bush family has been making questionable deals ever since Prescott Bush put some work in for the third Reich.
He said, and he was speaking as a wm, you have to follow the money.

Poor Bill. Sorry Bill, it's W's war. :)

Of course W started it, and the compliant dumbocrats signed on.

But Obama won it before losing it.

One of the Greatest Achievements' of This Administration is so much like "mission accomplished" it's scary.

It does prove my point that neither political party has a clue.

Maybe the "Bill" here is Bill Buckley, back from the dead.

I always thought the reactionaries who call themselves conservative had an empathy deficit. Numbers of Shi'ia and Sunni dead, dead children, unarmed dead black men, whatever, they read statistics and feel nothing. It doesn't affect them when a human being dies unless it's the fellow's own mother. Otherwise, just an unpreventable statistic.

I imagine an old Chinese curse: may you have EMPATHY for every suffering you hear about! ZAP!

Bill, I agree with you. don't pay attention to them. Keep doing what you're doing.
