Wrong About Iraq

As Iraq falls to pieces, Jon Stewart of 'The Daily Show,' as usual, went to the archival footage. He showed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in 2001 urging the overthrow of Saddam Hussein; he showed Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol warning about Hussein's weapons of mass destruction; he showed Paul Wolfowitz talking about Iraq's ability to finance its own reconstruction.

Those idiots were ostracized, never heard from again, Stewart joked.

In light of recent events, he continued, the news media have "rushed to get the band back together again": Kristol appeared on ABC News on Iraq; Wolfowitz on NBC News; and Graham on CBS News and CNN. None of those fellows, however, has reaped the exposure of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who was all over the television last week in the midst of the Iraq breakdown. Or, as Stewart put it, "And since John McCain was one of the wrongest before and during the war, it's only fitting that in this current crisis, he was on so many shows, you'd think he just won 'Dancing With the Stars.' "

"We had that war won, and we blew it," McCain said in one of his media ops. After abridging some of McCain's hawkish views on overseas hot spots, Stewart finished, "The John McCain military victory plan for America is the same as the John McCain media strategy: Be everywhere, forever."

Freak: "N Korea would get stomped by any modern outfitted military."

I think you underestimate their capability.

Cajun: "and their severely outdated military poses no threat to their Southern neighbors whatsoever."

Outdated? I'm guessing you haven`t witnessed any of their recent military parades. They have, and continue to buy, new military equipment from China all the time.

Cajun: American won the Spanish-American war over a century ago. Yes we were "expansionist" back then, get over it that was the 19th century. America doesn`t "Occupy" any country now, except our own, if they don`t want us there, we leave. With a few exceptions like Guantanamo Bay.

The word "Occupy", here at IAB, is being extremely misused to make America seem evil and that`s just not the case.

"The reason tensions haven't improved is because the Kim family of psychopaths have remained in power, for over 60yrs. and continue to brainwash their people.

You are really concerned with N Korea? Half their population has no electricity. Kim talks the talk, he can`t do poo. N Korea would get stomped by any modern outfitted military.

Really? We freed the Philippines from the Japanese in WWII, that was "dubious"? WTF??!!

After we "liberated" (emphasis on quotes) them from the Spaniards in 1898, and occupied them ever since.
