"....before I ignored that war, invaded Iraq, botched it at every conceivable strategic point, and thereby created a new playground for them to thrive."
That was a long time ago. What difference, at this point, does it make?
You mean besides the fact that it allowed Iran unfettered influence in the region, allowed Iran to influence a pro-Iranian gov't in Iraq and emboldened terrorists both in the region and around the world.... which will harm US interests in the region for the foreseeable future
And of course the 4000 troops KIA and 30,000 WIA makes no difference... Bush gave a speech.
Hey, if Hillary can claim what difference does it make on Bengazi, which was less than a year ago, I think the right can claim the same on anything Bush did. Not that I would, mind you.
One was a surprise terrorist attack on a soft target
and the other was a deliberate, planned invasion of a country for all the wrong reasons, involving hundreds of thousands of troops 4000 of which died and 30,000 wounded.
Ya, they are exactly the same.
Why do you hate logic so much?
Same reason you hate science?
Anything that you can't comprehend is scary, except if you can convince yourself otherwise with some mumbo-jumbo, a some incense and a conglomeration of fictional stories gathered in book form.
