The Ted Rall Alternate Reality Quote Of The Day
The Ted Rall Alternate Reality Quote Of The Day: Either Ted Rall penned his latest column from some sort of alternate universe or he’s so detached from reality that he probably needs psychological counseling. I’m guessing option two is closer to the mark. Just look at the opening of his latest column and you’ll see what I mean…
We warned the Bush Administration that invading Iraq would destabilize the Middle East and spread radical anti-American Islamism. We told the American people that taking out Saddam Hussein without a viable government to replace him would open a vacuum for anarchy, civil war and a power grab by radical Iranian-backed Shiite clerics. Now the antiwar movement’s doomsday scenarios have been fulfilled so completely that military history scarcely mentions a more thoroughly botched endeavor–and we’ll be living with the fallout for years.”
OMG, “the antiwar movement’s doomsday scenarios have been fulfilled…completely?!?!” You mean there has been a Civil War in Iraq and the Shiite clerics won and took over? I guess dissent really has been squashed in America since we haven’t heard about this on the news. And, “military history scarcely mentions a more thoroughly botched endeavor?” Wow, there are a lot of dead Frenchmen, Zulus, & Carthaginians (among countless others) who might dispute that statement. Hell, Saddam Hussein might even have something to say about that if he’s just hiding in someone’s root cellar & isn’t dead already. Maybe next week Ted can explain how we’re all living in the Matrix and the “Bush Family Evil Empire” is just another method of control used by the system….
