New article in Vanity Fair in Jan will say.....

the Iraq’s war neoconservative boosters have
turned against the bush administration and its
war policies. The author of the article a David Rose,
says, the leading neocons in Washington have denounced
the war’s execution. He interviewed, such neocons as
Richard Perle, Kenneth Adelman, David Frum and others.

These neocons played major roles in getting the war in Iraq
going. Perle for example says, “if he had his time over, he would
not have advocated an invasion of Iraq.” The neocons still think
Saddam was a menace to the world, but they believe that
the bush administration has screwed up the execution of the
war. Perle also says “The decisions did not get made that should have
been. They didn’t get made in a timely fashion and the differences
were argued out endlessly… At the end of the day, you have to
hold the president responsible… I don’t think he realized the extent
of the opposition within his own administration, and the disloyalty”

This is a devastating critique of the bush administration
by his own supporters.

see you on tuesday


You clearly don’t even know who these people are.
If you did, you would know the significance of the article
is a total smackdown of the current administration
by its own supportors.


The Vanity Fair article: … ntPage=all

The ‘cut and run’ has begun.

The cocky superiority, hubris and arrogance has given way to blame and finger pointing.
Whatever happened to the republiCUNT’s mantra of personal responsibility? It seems their state of denial has simply transferred from the reality in Iraq to the people responsible.


I can see a lot of this as damage control. The neocons see the writing on the wall in Iraq, and some of them are trying to ensure that the blame gets placed, not on neoconservatism or American imperialism, but on George W. Bush. By calling him a gross incompetent, a man who doesn’t make decisions, someone who botched the whole operation, they hope to salvage the possibility that a future administration could garner enough public support to try it again.

The alternative would be to recognize the policy itself as a failure. Obviously, these folks would much prefer to throw the president to the wolves and save their baby if they can.

He’s an unpopular lame duck president. If his approval ratings were better his “supporters” would be begging him to make appearances and stump for them. As is they’re putting some distance between themselves and him. Much like Gore did when he ran the first time.

:unamused: Seems to be attacking them to me, but what do I know?

You don’t understand Impetuous, CI, he’s Bush’s Minister of Information – just like the famous Iraqi Minister of Information (and just as funny)
Reality plays no part in his extremist ideology. Reality is for wimps :laughing:
Below is a selection of some of his Imp-like statements some made while U.S. tanks were virtually rolling behind him.

“There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!”

“My feelings - as usual - we will slaughter them all”

“Our initial assessment is that they will all die”

“I blame Al-Jazeera - they are marketing for the Americans!”

“God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis.”

“They’re coming to surrender or be burned in their tanks.”

“No I am not scared, and neither should you be!”

“Be assured. Baghdad is safe, protected”

Think of Imp like this and you’ll have a hoot. Just don’t take him seriously.
