We can't afford to listen to Condi Rice

Condaleeza Rice wants war -- Syria, Ukraine, Asgard, wherever -- and she's ticked off by America's unmanly turn to peacenik-ism.
“I fully understand the sense of weariness," she told a GOP fundraiser Wednesday, according to reports. "I fully understand that we must think: ‘Us, again?’ I know that we’ve been through two wars. I know that we’ve been vigilant against terrorism. I know that it’s hard. But leaders can’t afford to get tired. Leaders can’t afford to be weary.”
And our taxpayers can't afford this kind of "leadership." Ultimate costs of the misadventures in Afghan and Iraq: Between four and six trillion dollars. Current federal budget: $3.8 trillion. Current year's federal debt: $514 billion.

I think Rice should be forbidden from ever again uttering the words "can't afford."
I think we should ask ourselves: Have we made the world better with our military adventurism? And what exactly are 'national interests'.

My own answers to those queries are pretty grim. Personally, I think the GW era folks should all sit down and remain quiet. I do not need to hear anymore from Cheney, Rummy or Ms Rice. We're still cleaning up after their God-awful mess.

Gosh if only she had spoken up in Early 2001...

And the Iraq/Afghan Boondoogles have cost us much more than 6 Trillion not only because of the emergency war spending bills under W, but also because it allowed the Teabaggers to demand Austerity Budgets because of the Deficit.
Rice is as big a liar as was Cheney, Bush and Powell at the UN.

First off, she traipsed the world throughout 2002 assuring all who asked, in official press conferences, Saddam did NOT have WMDs, was contained in a box and was no threat to his neighbors.

She started willfully lying about all these things in 2003 when ordered by her masters to do so.

She slso maintained that there was NO intelligence before 9-11-2001 outlining how planes could and might be used as projectiles
against American buildings. She was corrected (exposed as a liar) by many intelligence officials, not the least of these being Ray McGovern.
Worse than an incompetent, a brazen dissembler.
Not just a dissembler, Ken. A perjurer. In sworn testimony on 4-8-04 she told the 9/11 Commission that the CIA's "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US" memo was a historical analysis of old information and contained no new threat information. It was "not a warning", she said more than once.

If you read the document you can see that it warns of preparations for hijackings and planned attacks inside the USA.

Also note that an article in the German press by Oliver Schrom claims that the memo was not the 1-1/2 pages we've seen, but was in fact 11-1/2 pages long. The redactions at the bottom of the memo appear to be page number redactions, which would appear to confirm Schrom's information.

The Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission was a friend of Rice, he had co-authored a book with her, he worked under her on the transition team when Bush took power, he was the architect of the restructuring of the NSC so that Richard Clarke no longer had cabinet-level access, and he was overheard calling the CIA authors of the memo on the phone to ask them to validate Rice's claim that the memo was not a warning. They refused.

When Rice became Secretary of State, her friend was rewarded with a plum job as special advisor to the State Department.

The fraud that Condaleeza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney perpetrated upon the United States, led to the pointless deaths of over four thousand service members. It is astounding that these people aren't in prison for their crimes. It is even more astounding that they are allowed in our newspapers and on our televisions telling more lies to lead us into the next pointless war.
Yeah, but "anti Iraq war" Obama, let the criminal Cheney regime off the hook. He just told Europeans that Russia's almost bloodless re-taking of Crimea was a much worse crime than America's dishonest invasion/occupation of Iraq which cost a million lives.

The man's a lying hypocritical sociopath and the left is silent, while the right, save Rand Paul perhaps, pressures him
on to commit even more crimes.
Why hasn't this lying bitch already been hanged for war crimes, along with G.W. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Colon Bowel?
Why? Because Bath House Barry Soetoro doesn't think those lines of inquiry would be productive. Also, perhaps it is because he himself is a war criminal just like the others.
CBarr" "led to the pointless deaths of over four thousand service members.." Not to mention the pointless deaths of over one and a half million Iraqis (still counting, daily).
War crimes, people. We hanged people like this at Nuremberg.
