OBAMA HAD CRAZY IDEAS IN OCTOBER 2002

Filed under: BARACK OBAMA, Bush, hillary clinton, John McCain, life, mideast, news, politics, war — gasdocpol @ 2:10 pm

Saddam posed no imminent and direct threat to the United States.

The Iraqi economy was in shambles.

The Iraqi military was a fraction of its former strength.

In concert with the international community Saddam could be contained as was demonstrated by Desert Storm

A successful war against Iraq would require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.

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.

BUT GW BUSH AND JOHN McCAIN KNEW BETTER.

  2. pheonix (is that spelled correctly ?)

    The above words a paraphrased from Obama’s Oct 2002 speech. Note how Obama organized fairly common knowedge into a cogent, sound, valid argument that the Iraq war would be a dumb war.

    Does that not demonstrate: intelligence, knowlegde, decision making ability, common sense, judgement and command of the English language?

    Former House Speaker Tip O’Neill said “All politics is local” Obama spent 8 years in the Illinois Senate before he was in the US Senate. That is a resonable quantity of experience.

    On his first attempt at national campaigning he beat both Clintons.

    Barack Obama is my choice.
