These are the rants of an anonymous Left-leaning Libertarian. Libertarian views are generally socially liberal but fiscally conservative. I view George Bush as the anti-Libertarian, he is socially conservative and fiscally irresponsible. Unless you are a very wealthy person, religious fundamentalist, or a racist redneck, I cannot understand why a person would support George Bush.

Bill Kristol is a Jackass

Bill Kristol is one of the Neo-conmen behind PNAC plans to invade Iraq. His dreams of an Iraq invasion have been realized . . . and virtually everything the neo-con crowd promised about the Iraq invasion has turned out the be complete wrong.

For example, on an episode of Terry Gross' Fresh Air at the war's opening weeks, Bill Kristol said "There's been a certain amount of pop sociology in America, that the Shia can't get along with the Sunni and the Shia in Iraq want to establish some kind of Islamic fundamentalist regime. There's been almost no evidence of that at all," he continued. "Iraq's always been very secular."

Oh really, Bill? . . . hmm . . . so who won the Iraqi elections? SCIRI. Let me spell that out for you "Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq". Oh . . . yeah, I'm sure they have no interest in setting up an Islamist regime.

And how are those Sunni and Shia getting along? Well, they are currently in a full blown civil war wherein around 100 people are getting killed each day.

So, it is completely obvious that Bill Kristol has absolutely no clue as to what he is talking about. Nobody should employ this guy as a commentator about foreign policy unless they want to get the opinion that is completely wrong.

Yet he persists. Isn't the definition of insanity "doing the same thing and expecting a different result."? Well these people are insane.

Bill Kristol is now talking about how we should launch some missiles at Iran such that the Iranian people will overthrow the Mullahs. How dare he even open his mouth? Who is giving this guy a platform? This guy has absolutely no credibility.

Bush wrong about everything to do with Iraq war

The Bush administration was wrong about EVERYTHING related to the Iraq war:

-WMDs (They claimed Saddam had them)
-Ties to Al-Qeada (Did not exist at all.)
-Ethic tensions (They said there was no Sunni/Shiia ethic tension to worry about)
-Being welcomed as liberators (They said we would be)
-Cost of the war ($100 Billion was an estimate given . . . a guy was fired for saying $200 Billion . . . we have spent more than $300 billion so far.)
-The length of war ("could be 6 days, 6 weeks . . . I doubt 6 months" said Rumsfeld)etc.
-The Effect on Israel/Palenstine issue (They said it would help.)

Is there anything that they got right?

Liberals are NOT on the terrorists side!

I'm so tired of hearing crap from conservatives that implies or states that liberals are on the terrorists' side. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The terrorists are:
-For mixing religion & government
-Against gay rights
-Against teaching evolution in schools
-militant and overly pro-gun
-Against women's right to choose

That's right, THE TERRORISTS ARE CONSERVATIVES. This meme about 'liberals supporting terrorists' is simple a fiction created in the paranoid minds of wingnut conservatives that think anyone who doesn't agree with them is teamed up against them.

Liberals just have different views on how to combat terrorism.
Here is a simple view of many liberals . . . Go after the terrorists. You'd think that would be obvious, but the Bush administration blew it by removing military assets from Afghanistan to go after Iraq. The invasion of Iraq was a dream come true . . . it showed the Arab world that Osama was 'right' about a lot of things . . . that the west lies (no WMDs), that the west only cares about the oil in the mid-East (since we abandoned Afghanistan and invaded an oil-rich nation that had nothing to do with 9/11), and that the west is not all-powerful (Iraq has turned into a quagmire under America occupation).
