IF I HAD KNOWN THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW…..GUESS WHAT ??

In October 2002, Barack Obama KNEW what we know now

” I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. 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 encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda.

I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.”

Not bad for a young whippersnapper of 45 who some say is lacking in experience. Among other things Obama recognised that:

1. The success of the war was not a given.

2. The occupation could be lengthy

3. The cost could be great. Try a trillion dollars

4. There could be undetermined consequences. How abour 4000 Americans dead and 30,000 maimed for life?

5. Arabs could react badly and recruitment for Al Qaeda would be strengthened.

He concluded that it would be a dumb war. I will take my chances with that young whippersnapper any day.
