Insanity

The definition of "insanity" is doing the same things over and over expecting a different result. Case in point, the USA attacked and invaded Iraq on account of Iraq has weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and Iraq was able to use them to destroy American cities (later, it was found that Iraq had no weapons).

So then, the federal officials said they invaded Iraq because Saddam Hussein has close ties with Osama bin Laden and 9/11 (but on the contrary, Saddam despised Osama, and vise versa; Osama is an Islamic fanatic, while Saddam is purely secular).

So, the federal officials said they attacked Iraq because they want to spread "democracy" through the Middle East, and Iraq is the heart of the Middle East (it wound up that Iraq "democracy" is an Islamic theocracy, aligned with Iran, one of the countries that the president called his "axis of evil").

All the while, with enough attacks, Iraq will be a "sovereign" nation (according to the New York Times, President Bush now flatly rejects Ibrahim al-Jaafari, Iraqi lawfully elected Prime Minister; it was the first "clear and direct message" from the Americans on a specific candidate for prime minister--so much for sovereignty).

And what we have here is a massive debt, run-away spending, never-ending war, and eroding away of our rights (PATRIOT Act, REAL ID Act, "enemy combatants", Gonzales v. Raich, Kelo v. New London).


Now, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton says it is time for Iran to end it's nuclear program...or else (i.e., or else we will invade your country).

Insanity.
