Iran and Syria
With all of the disasters brought to us by Karl Rove and his cute little sock puppet, there’s one tiny silver lining. If you’re trying to teach somebody about logic and critical thinking and you need examples of what not to do, Bush has been providing a gold mine.
Before carrying out any task, you need to plan, prepare, think everything through. The war in Iraq was supposed to be a cakewalk and be over in just a few hours…Uhh, next lesson…
Self-fulfilling prophecy: two years ago Bush said the Iraqi government was aligned with international terrorists. It wasn’t. Now that we’ve been quagmired there for almost two years, Iraq is now the main gathering point for Islamic terrorists. Duuuhhhh!!!! Earth to Dumbya!
And now today’s lesson: the unintended consequence. Iran and Syria (among other countries) have been in our crosshairs lately. Whatever threat they actually posed, these two countries are now joining to form a united front against any possible attack by the United States. Iran‘s vice president said “We are ready to help Syria on all grounds to confront threats.”
Is this what we intended? Are the Chicken Hawks ever going to be held accountable?
