In New Memoir, McCain Says The Iraq War Was A "Mistake" And He's To "Blame"

The Iraq War “can’t be judged as anything other than a mistake, a very serious one, and I have to accept my share of the blame for it.” Sena | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
In New Memoir, McCain Says The Iraq War Was A "Mistake" And He's To "Blame"

Alan: Once a month I lunch with retired Air Force General friend, AWC, whose first assignment was in China during World War II.

Several years ago, my friend confided -- and I quote verbatim -- "It seems we haven't fought a good war since World War II."

General C also told me: "Old Ho (Chi Minh) was a real patriot and a friend of the United States. During World War II, when I was stationed in China, we could always count on Ho to get to remote American Air Force crash sites and bring our boys home. Uncle Sam certainly didn't have the capability to do that. But Ho did it every time we called on him."

"Israeli War Historian, Martin van Creveld's Startling Commentary On The Iraq War"
Excerpt: "For misleading the American people, and launching the most foolish war since Emperor Augustus in 9 B.C sent his legions into Germany and lost them, Bush deserves to be impeached and, once he has been removed from office, put on trial along with the rest of the president’s men. If convicted, they’ll have plenty of time to mull over their sins." War historian Martin van Creveld is the only non-U.S. author whose writings are obligatory reading by America's Officer Corps."

George Will: "The 2003 Invasion Of Iraq Was The Worst Foreign Policy Decision In U.S. History"

Alan: I love Ike's sentiment. 

But now that The Deplorable One has "Made America Hate Again," smart money bets on another war -- either with Iran or North Korea -- and this one will be a doozy - a high water mark of manufactured consent coupled with breathtaking stupefaction.
