This one was pretty much mandatory

Jeb! Bush would just like you all to know what a terrific job his brother George did in Iraq. No really, you may have thought it was a quagmire with thousands of dead Americans and hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis, plus the creation of instability that continues to this day, but now that he’s given it a lot of thought and gone back and forth on it a few times, Jeb! would like you to know that his big bro was much better at war stuff than you remember!

Speaking at a national security forum in Davenport, Iowa, on Thursday, the Republican presidential candidate acknowledged that his brother’s record on prosecuting the war and its aftermath wasn’t perfect as he tried to balance his own outlook and reconcile the implicit connection he has to some of his brother’s unpopular decisions.

“I think people have every right to be critical of decisions that were made,” the former Florida governor said. “In 2009, Iraq was fragile, but secure.”

And he even said Those Words, which we should never let him forget. It’s like if Nixon had a little brother who ran for president and insisted that really, big brother Dick really wasn’t a crook, because he never went to jail.

The “mission was accomplished” when it came to Iraq’s security at the end of his brother’s time in the White House, Bush said.

“That is a fact,” he said. “You can’t rewrite history in that regard.”

That would be a pretty impressive argument if it weren’t already a rewriting of history –a history of just six years ago, at that!

And then Jeb explained why all that bloodshed and money was worth it:

“Taking out Saddam Hussein turned out to be a pretty good deal,” Bush said in a reference to the execution of the Iraqi president.

Erm. Yes, thank you for returning to Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld’s favorite talking point from 2003 to 2009. And everything was so beautiful after Saddam Hussein was gone, and the country fell into a civil war. But at least it was no longer ruled by a dictator who oppressed the country’s ethnic minorities; instead, it turned into a war of everyone against everyone, with enormous slaughters of civilians of every ethnicity. So maybe that was equality, of a kind.

Speaking of “rewriting history,” Peter Beinart, over at the Atlantic, has written a fine refutation of what he calls the “Surge Fallacy,” noting that, yes, parts of the surge were indeed very successful, especially paying Sunni leaders to not join with al Qaeda to fight against U.S. troops. But this year’s crop of hawkish 2016 candidates has conveniently forgotten something: The surge wasn’t in itself a victory.

The surge was not intended merely to reduce violence. Reducing violence was a means to a larger goal: political reconciliation. Only when Iraq’s Sunni and Shia Arabs and its Kurds all felt represented by the government would the country be safe from civil war. As a senior administration official told journalists the day Bush announced the surge, “The purpose of all this is to get the violence in Baghdad down, get control of the situation and the sectarian violence, because now, without it, the reconciliation that everybody knows in the long term is the key to getting security in the country—the reconciliation will not happen.”

But although the violence went down, the reconciliation never occurred.

Oh, that. It’s far easier to blame Barack Obama for Iraq falling apart than to acknowledge that Iraq was never really together in the post-Saddam environment. Go read and bookmark Beinart’s article, kids — you’ll be citing it a lot in the next few months of debates. And when you do, be ready to be accused of rewriting history, because now everyone “knows” that George Bush brought peace to Iraq, which proves that we need to go back there and bring peace again, and while we’re at it, maybe invade Iran for good measure. No matter how big a clusterfuck it turns out to be, there’ll no doubt be a 2020 or 2024 Republican candidate to explain why it was a huge success.

    Iraq was never together period.

    The Ottomans were like “maybe we should group those three districts together….oh never mind, that would be bad” but then the British came in and where like “smash those guys together!” which is a thing they did.

    It was only “together” under Saddam because he terrified everyone.

    • Reddishrabbit

      Colonialism has a lot to answer for in the end. So many of the hotspots are because a European gentlemen ignored the actual land and just built nations out of the air. I think I read there were hundreds of nations in Africa and now 49. And why not just create nations in the middle east for a rebels who helped the English in WWII? Oh well, guess it was worth it for cheap tea, ivory, oil, and slaves.

    Go fuck yourself, you fucking stupid fuck face fucker.

    Over 100,000 Iraqis dead and counting, over 4,000 Americans killed, trillions of dollars wasted and lining the pockets of corrupt private armies and contractors, religious persecutions, sectarian violence, terrorism unleashed and empowered, ISIS created and pillaging, murdering, and raping in the name of God across the land, and it was good fucking deal? ‘

    If hell is real, I hope your family’s punishment is to live as a poor Iraqi under the hell of the Iraq war and its aftermath, and then as the spouse of an American serviceman killed for no goddamn reason, until you’ve experienced every small amount of pain and misery you and your family have caused in the history of your fucking around with the world and treating it as your personal playground of lesser beings.

    In short… fuck you again.

        In the aftermath of the recent upstate NY prison break, the guards put plastic bags over the heads of other prisoners and threatened to waterboard them. Now where did they get the idea that was okay?

        Obama has been a great president, but he didn’t jail anyone for torture. We’ll pay for that decision for a long time. (The banksters didn’t learn their lesson, either.)

        I was a we’un back then. All I recall was that Ollie took the heat for old Rappin’ Ron Raven for selling arms to Iran, arming the Taliban to fight Russia (immortalized in the oft overlooked First Blood III: Rambo-stan), Nancy telling us how the poorz eat cornflakes with water, and something about him having a trickle down effect (which apparently was cured with some good ole-fashioned economic penicillin, cuz the rich needed that more than anyone). I didn’t really think of him much afterwards until the whole Raven fetish thing started in earnest. What I have learned since (Iran Hostages, for example) don’t really help his case. Then again, what the fuck do I know?

      Interestingly enough, the Wehrmacht generals didn’t have much to say about the brain trust of German intelligence who kept insisting that the dead-enders were on their last legs. Hitler himself said that it would be a breeze, just kick the door in and the entire rotting structure of the Bolshevik state would come crashing down.

      • coozledad

        What’s always stunned me about the failure of Barbarossa, is neither the murderous efficiency of the Nazi military or the abject idiocy of Stalin could subvert the force of fucking nature that was the Soviet Union. The Germans caught every break in the early going, and Stalin kept feeding them army after army with that “Not one step back” bullshit. Imagine a battle where American or British forces suffered 200,000 or more killed, missing or captured, then imagine two more.

        I had an American Military history professor tell me Hitler was a genius. That’s when I knew he was an utterly useless dumbass.

    Granted it was a great throw to get that cherry bomb to blow up right at the hornet nest…but it wasnt a good plan after that.

    This is Baconz break down of the Bush policies in Iraq.

    Hard to blame Shrub for trusting to the short attentions and collective stupidity of voters with no use for the study of history when there are so many cool and fun things happening right now that there’s always an app to track and pay attention with right now. Rope-a-dope.

    Maliki threw them out. Now they got rid of Maliki, so they’re sneaking back in. Victory!

    If we really wanted to end a vicious dictatorship that tortures and kills we would have invaded Saudi Arabia.

    i don’t want a president who’s going to do everything he can to “prove” his brother was “right”

      Possibly somewhat better than a son doing everything he could to “prove” his father was “wrong”, but, yeah, let’s be done with the Adams’ Family style politicin’, please.

  • Capt.Jim

    He would do a lot better if he ran away from Shrub as fast as he could go or just come out and say look my brother was a fucking stooge who was influenced by a damn crook named Cheney,hell he was so dumb he would have followed Dick thru the gates of hell for a damn candy cane and a pat on the back.

    Yeb! added “And my daddy’s involvement in Iran-Contra was a pretty good deal too (except for the helping-Iran part). And Terri Schiavo would’ve thanked me for saving her life if those other meddling folks wouldn’t have kilt her. And my brother Neil did okay at Silverado Saving and Loan – remember, it was EVERYBODY ELSE who was involved that got fined. Did i mention what a fine job Grandpa Prescott did over there in Nazi Germany? now THAT was a good deal!!”
