Unquote” George H.W. Bush

Bush on his decision to not pursue the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in his 1992 memoir “A World Transformed:”

“We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq. The coalition would instantly have collapsed, the Arabs deserting it in anger and other allies pulling out as well. Under the circumstances, there was no viable “exit strategy” we could see. …”

Now that is foresight.

Dear Bush Jr.,

How painful is it to have that pointed out by your daddy?
