Beto talks Iraq and Edward-Isaac Dover is in a tizzy

There are no awards for telling the truth about Iraq.  Lie about it and you will go far.  MOTHER JONES employs no truth teller about Iraq, no one who took a stand against the war but they hired Iraq War cheerleader Kevin, didn't they.  Little Drum-mette has a job.  It's that way in the corporate media, it's that way in the beggar media.

It's that way with little Edward-Isaac Dovere of THE ATLANTIC -- the bible for War Hawks.











It has been going on for 27 years.  But here's a more important point, "combat troops left in 2011"?  And Barack ordered bombings in 2014.  As military leaders repeatedly noted, bombing missions are combat missions.  Edward is a stupid f**k and sadly the country is brimming with them which is why the Iraq War continues.

Edward,  who looks like he should be the spokeswoman for Mama Celeste Pizzas, plays dumb and playing dumb is the default position that allows the never-ending wars to continue.

Beto O'Rourke tells some truth and Edward clutches the ben wa balls.

Not everyone is so foolish.


Replying to 
If you want to be pedantic, we’ve NEVER declared war on Iraq. Obama’s statement has no more legal meaning than Bush’s “Mission Accomplished.” It’s just rhetoric. If you define war instead as “one country using their military to bomb another,” as many would, Beto is correct.



Beto is right actually. Operation Desert Fox and other operations in the 1990s, there have only been brief periods since Desert Storm that the U.S. war in Iraq has paused.




  1. Replying to  
    I'm no fan of Beto, but this is the more honest statement on US war in Iraq. Our sanctions killed a lot of people. It's war by another name.


Beto addressed Iraq.  We'll applaud him for that.

  14. As president, I will sign into law a new Voting Rights Act. Together, we will end gerrymandering, we will get big money out of politics, we will have automatic and same-day voter registration, and we will ensure racist voter ID laws never again impact access to the ballot box.
  15. With El Paso and the communities of the border leading the way, we are going to rewrite this country's immigration laws in our own image, reflecting our own values, and in the best traditions of the United States of America.
  16. Let's adopt universal background checks. No more loopholes, no more exceptions. And then let's ensure that weapons of war are kept on the battlefield and are no longer sold into our communities where they show up in our schools, our churches, our workplaces, and our streets.
  17. This is a campaign for America, for everyone in America. The challenges we face cannot be met by half measures or with only half the country. It’s gonna take all we’ve got and it’s gonna take all of us.

  21. We are going to achieve guaranteed, high-quality, universal healthcare. Everyone able to see a doctor, afford their prescriptions, and get the help they need. No one denied care, no one priced out, no one left behind.
  22. Thank you, El Paso! Very grateful for today and every day in this beautiful community.
  23. Let's fully invest in a pre-K-12 world-class public school system. Let's pay our teachers a living wage. Let's end the school to prison pipeline and achieve equity in our classrooms. Once we do that, there's no stopping these kids and no stopping this country.
  24. If we believe in justice for all, then we must reform our justice system so it is equitable for all.
