“Anti-War Obama” 2002

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

“I know that Saddam Hussein (Iraq) poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda”.


• followed Bush’s disastrous Iraq policy for 3-years,
• begged Iraq’s government to let us keep combat troops there,
• left only after the Iraqis demanded we follow the ‘Leave Iraq by 2011’ agreement,
• “double-downed” our troop commitment to Afghanistan,
• bombed Libya under the guise of NATO and “humanitarianism,”
• sent combat troops to Africa, and
• continues to militarily threaten Iran, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, and Syria.

If this guy gets any more “peaceful,” he may hit the nuclear button. Enough!
