The Common Ills
What's the whine?
Help me out here.
Republicans have investigated Benghazi more than the Congress investigated Iraq?
Isn't that it?
The Democratic Party chose not to investigate Iraq.
American voters put Democrats in charge of both houses of Congress in the November 2006 mid-term elections.
From January 2007 through January 2011, Democrats controlled both houses -- and also the White House from January 2009 forward.
But no investigations.
In the United Kingdom, they've had multiple investigations.
I'm not getting how Republicans in Congress -- who largely supported the war -- failed by not investigating it.
I am getting how Democrats, put in power on the promise of give us control of one house of Congress and we'll end the Iraq War, have any excuses.
Nor am I getting how the continued Iraq War is so easily shrugged off.
But the fake asses, people are noticing them.
Take these Tweets about fake ass Tom Hayden.
Anonymous had to emerge in order to replace the fake assery.
In 2009, James Comey made $6.11M as chief general counsel of Lockheed Martin as @HillaryClinton signed off on all gov-to-gov arms sales
So much whoring, so much lying.
It flooded the internet and created the need and the demand for Anonymous.
A bunch of so-called 'brave' names created on the internet replaced the Cokie Roberts and turned out to be just as whorish.
They had nothing to do but whore, to try to make money.
Anonymous sidesteps that need to self-stroke by refusing to make money from their work.
They're truth tellers.
And they scare the hell out of the fake asses.
Meanwhile the US Defense Dept announced more bombs dropped on Iraq today:
Strikes in Iraq
Attack, bomber, fighter, and remotely piloted aircraft, as well as rocket artillery, conducted nine strikes in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of Iraq’s government:
-- Near Al Huwayjah, a strike destroyed an ISIL modular oil refinery.
-- Near Al Qaim, a strike destroyed an ISIL homemade explosives cache.
-- Near Bayji, a strike engaged an ISIL tactical unit, and destroyed a mortar system and a supply cache.
-- Near Hit, a strike destroyed a mortar system and a weapons cache.
-- Near Kisik, a strike engaged an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed a staging area.
-- Near Mosul, two strikes destroyed two ISIL tactical units and destroyed six ISIL-held buildings, four tunnel entrances, and a command and control node.
-- Near Ramadi, a strike engaged an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL-held building.
-- Near Tal Afar, a strike engaged an ISIL tactical unit, destroyed a mortar system and suppressed a mortar firing position.
Task force officials define a strike as one or more kinetic events that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single, sometimes cumulative, effect. Therefore, officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIL vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against buildings, vehicles and weapon systems in a compound, for example, having the cumulative effect of making those targets harder or impossible for ISIL to use. Accordingly, officials said, they do not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target. Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike.
Bombs don't feed children.
Bombs don't grow crops.
Bombs don't build schools.
When will the bombing stop?
