HILLARY WAS READY TO VOTE FOR THE IRAQ WAR

Filed under: BARACK OBAMA, Bush, life, mideast, news, politics, war — gasdocpol @ 7:32 pm

UNFORTUNATELY HILLARY WAS NOT RIGHT WHEN SHE VOTED FOR THE IRAQ FIASCO.

BUT Hillary explains that if she knew then what Obama knew then she would have not voted for the war. What did Obama know then that Hillary not know then?

THE FOLLOWING ARE THINGS THAT BARACK OBAMA KNEW ON OCTOBER 26, 2003

” I also know that Saddam 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 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.”

APPARENTLY HILLARY DID NOT KNOW ANY OF THOSE THINGS OR POSSIBLY, SHE KNEW THOSE THINGS AND DID NOT GRASP THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THOSE THINGS OR DID NOT HAVE THE REQUISITE JUDGEMENT TO MAKE USE OF THAT INFORMATION.

In any case, Obama has had enough experience combined with enough common sense to get it right. That is what counts, not the number of years of experience.

  1. The truth shall prevail! 🙂

    Thought you might be interested in the following comment I left on one of the major News blogs today:

    It’s a shame that so many people still want the OLD way of running our government with lobbyists and crooked politicians at the helm. Our children and grandchildren deserve something better. WE deserve something better! Hill and Bill represent all that is wrong with our government.

    You can argue all you want about who has the most experience but you know that both are near equal in ELECTED US Senate experience but Obama also has Illiois state senate experience under his belt.

    One of them votes according to the staus quo, and one is not afraid to say no. The question is though, who has the best experience to meet our needs, the needs of the people?

    The one who sat on corporate boards, and/or sat on boards to help others by gathering information, or the person who was out on the street working along side people of all races and genders and helping them to get jobs and health care, food and shelter?

    Who will be better able to sit down with the medical and insurance groups to improve health care at affordable costs for everyone? The one who has gotten hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions from them or the one who will sit down with them and wants to work out a plan that is fair to them as well as US?

    Who is better to restore our reputation in the world? The one who’s husband takes money for favors and the one who won’t meet and talk face to face with our advisaries? The one who has taken a jet and visited other countries and shook a few hands? Or the one who will meet our advisaries and talk to them face to face and see if we can find common ground and who has lived amoung people of the world and gotten to know them?

    Think well what kind of governmenr you want.
    Think well what kind of world you want to leave your children and grandchildren.
    Real change can be frightening. Will you be voting with wisdom or fear of real change?
    The only way to conqueor fear is to face it. How brave are you?

    Peace!
