Why we didn't invade Iraq--by George H W Bush--in 1998

    This article was written in Time magazine by G. Bush 41 and Brent Snowcroft.

    Time mag removed a link to the article some time in the 2000's :)rolleyes: I wonder why)

    Senior Bush had wisdom that jr. seems to be lacking. Note the bold portion (my emphasis). Senior suggests we could still have been occupying Iraq 7 years after the gulf war.

    I wish Jr. had been paying attention rather than partying and doing pretty much nothing for the first 35 years of his life.

    Great find earl.

    Looks like Daddy-O Bush predicted the absolute fuck up 8 years before it was realized by his son. :eek:

    Over the years I have come to respect Bush Sr. more and more and this letter shows why. This letter show how good of a diplomat he was and how well he understood the Middle East. I think history will treat him very well even though he was not popular at the time.

    He should have listened to his daddy. Elders are wise, no doubt.

    Bush junior was just a puppet of the military industrial elite. Daddy bush on the other hand was part of the military industrial elite. Higher up in the food chain but both were right even though bush senior was less wrong then his kid lol. If we really cared for iraq we wouldnt have turned a deaf ear when saddam was gassing kurds like there was no tomorrow.
