Disgustingly enough, Mitt Romney had this to say about the current situation: “Tragically, all we’ve fought for in Iraq, all that 4,500 American lives were shed to gain, is on the cusp, potentially, of vanishing.”
To which, one blogger, Jim Wright, a retired US Navy Chief Warrant Officer who had fought in Iraq, responded to Romney in the most fitting way: “F**k you!”
In his lengthy blog post, Wright destroys ever flimsy justification for the Iraq War and why the warmongers supported it. It wasn’t because of 9/11. It wasn’t because of WMDs. It wasn’t to spread “freedom and democracy.” As most sane people had figured out since the war first broke out, the war was nothing more than a lie for oil.
The entire response is a well-written “F**k You!” to all the warmongers who supported this war, and a worthy read for anyone who ever opposed the war and wanted to hear their sentiments expressed from a disgruntled war veteran.
But the best part is when Wright tells the warmongers outright to put their money where their mouths are: if they sincerely believe this is a war worth fighting for, and we should return to Iraq to quell the civil unrest, then they should join him and the other troops in battle:
Sure, let’s go back to Iraq.Funny how the warmongering neocons, for as much as they wave their flags and aing "God Bless The U.S.A. and shout "support our troops," never join the wars that they claim to support. Strange, is it not?
Oh, yes, let us do that.
I’ll dig out my uniform and strap on my pistol and gird up my sword and ride into battle yet again.
Just so long as Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, Paul Ryan, Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, and every single one of those powdered, Botoxed talking heads at Fox News are in the vanguard. That’s right, you cowards, you put on a uniform and you lead the charge this time around. The Koch brothers and Mitt Romney can pay for it, every goddamned penny, we’ll bleed them until they’re dry and then we’ll pull the gold fillings from their teeth to pay for it right along with the rest of their Wall Street cronies. You fuckers got rich off the last one, you can damned well pay for this one. And when you run out of money, we’ll take your blood, fair’s fair.
Strap John McCain into the cockpit of an A-4 Skyhawk and let him fly air cover.
If he gets himself shot down and taken prisoner again, well, you know what? Fuck him, leave him to the enemy because frankly his hate and bile and raging insanity have done more damage to this country than Bowe Bergdahl ever did.
The terrorists can keep him.
You want to go to back to war? No problem, this time, you go first.
