Iraq: The Bombs Have Dropped, The Death Toll's Ris. I wonder Where Dick Cheney Is?

Seems as if things have changed in Iraq almost overnight and like most everyone else, Wally doesn’t have a clue.  “It’s okay to be ignorant of something,” he said.  "As long as you admit that you don’t know what you’re talking about.” 

The good thing is, Wally didn’t have to hear from Dick Cheney and all those other neocon assholes on the right, before the shit had hit the fan.  Thus far, the only comment Wally has heard from FOX News and other wingnuts, is that Obama is bombing Iraq in order to distract us from Benghazi.  But it’s only Friday, and less than twenty-four hours since we started engaging the insurgents with airstrikes.  By Sunday morning, Wally knew, the neocons would be all over the talk shows, talking smack about the president.

Wally also knew that it would be the same people who got us into this Iraq mess, who’d be pointing out all of Obama’s mistakes in the Middle East and blaming him for everything that’s happened in that area.  And never once will they connect the dots back to the first cause, it’s the Bush/Cheney invasion of Iraq on a bullshit tip that got this whole nightmare going in the first place.

Meanwhile, Wally is not sure if our involvement on any level is a good idea, but genocide sure as hell trumps make believe WMDs.  But on Sunday morning, FOX News and Republicans will be blaming Obama and Meet the Press will come up with a neocon or two to help confuse us more.  “At least FOX News, has an agenda,” Wally insists.  “But Meet the Press, I don’t know what their problem is.  Maybe they need some new booking agents and new host with some balls, who can think on her feet.
