History started with Iraq
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, September 18, 2008

How desperate are the critics of Iraq? Well a trip to the Wonk Room at Think Progress will suffice to demonstrate that they've been reduced to some pretty funny stuff:
The Washington Post confirms that yesterday’s terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy in Sanaa was the work of an Al Qaeda affiliate, using tactics developed in Iraq:
The use of two vehicle bombs — one to breach the perimeter of a compound, a second to drive inside and explode — is a tactic used by the Sunni insurgent group al-Qaeda in Iraq. […]

They learned a "tactic!?"


And used it more than once?

Get out of here!

So is that sort of like the vehicular bombs we saw used previously in Lebanon on our Marine barracks in the '80s and against Khobar Towers and the embassies in Africa (and a variation of it used on the Cole) that were later used in Iraq?

Or RPGs volleyed at helicopters like they learned in Somolia and later used in Iraq?

Or perhaps suicide bombers like they learned from the Palestinians and later used in Iraq?

How about wiring up artillery shells like the Viet Cong did and then setting them off when US military vehicles went by? We called 'em "booby-traps". Now they're called "IEDs".

Breathless and clueless in liberal-land.

The thing I always hit them with, and it really floors the ones who are honest with themselves, is that Bush hatred based on the war is silly because it is very, very, likely that we would have one to war with Saddam even if Gore or Kerry had been president.

Consider the facts, Everyone believed he had some sort of WMD program, and he kicked inspectors out so we could never be sure.

He was harboring terrorists and giving money to Hezbollah, what part of war on terror do you not understand?

He had repeatedly violated the cease fire agreement, could not be trusted and was bribing UN officials

He was making a mockery of US policy and hurting our credibility.

All the Democrats were gung ho for the war until if became expedient to be against it.

Put that all together and you get an almost certainty that the Democrats would have also gone to war with Saddam.

OMG! The next thing we will hear is that al Qaeda learned to hide in caves because Bush let them go at Tora Bora!

We haven’t heard the Left drag up that canard in a long time. Just wait until the presidential race remains tied, and watch as they get desperate say about October 15.

Especially if Obama doesn’t hit a home run in the first debate.

Booby traps go as far back as the ancient Egyptians and the Chinese.
