Commentary on screenshots;

Isn't it weird to want to start a war without seeking peace first? As it is, Iran isn't even the same sect of Islam as Al Qaeda or ISIL and they are enemies of Al Qaeda. Secondly, the stuff they are angry about (the US interfering in Iranian affairs and supporting a Shah with a secret police) has been confirmed by a recent declassified CIA document.

On top of that, Iran was moving towards moderation in the late 90's (I remember writing a paper on it for a middle eastern politics class) so this sudden change in politics could have an external source! (or so I realized many years ago). Turns out there is a ton of evidence of a change in foreign policy under Bush designed to aggravate the Iranians so they will give us an excuse to invade. From PBS: Timeline | The Decade-Long Covert War Against Iran

Iran Debate Highlights

Once again, the Bill is after Iran. Still out there seeking to fulfill George Bush's "vision" of the Axis of Evil. 
Wall Street Journal is owned by Rupert Murdoch who owns controlling stock in Fox News. So everything from The Wall Street Journal should be taken with a grain of salt.

This has a ton of "narratives" packed into it. For the moment I would just like anyone reading this to notice one fact about GOP politics i.e. proof of using fine words & noble phrases to fool people...

Although they praised 9/11 first responders, they repeatedly block healthcare for the 9/11 first responders.

I Give Up - 9/11 Responders Bill - Despite Anthony Weiner's passion and a clear majority, the House Republicans defeat a bill providing health care for 9/11 first responders. (10:32)
An update by the Daily Show is here.

This is something which the media should be covering on a regular basis so people will know how hypocritical the GOP really are. Informed readers may notice the similarity of this with the GOP's position on veterans i.e. praising them but continuously blocking bills that would help vets. It's amazing what hypocrisy you can get away with when you have your own TV show of lies backed up by more liars!
... and the GOP will defy anyone who doesn't agree with them that Iran doesn't have to be bombed (historical fact)... "Their main problem with Ron Paul... is because he won't pre-agree to start a war with Iran" - Jon Stewart... 
Who cares? This wasn't Obama's decision it was George Bush's. George Bush signed the withdrawal agreement from Iraq. Put stuff in context willya?

Note: Fox News pulled this one before and tried to cover thier basic and recent history mistake by claiming that Bush had been prophetic about Iraq. Given that Dick Cheney knew Iraq would fall apart & become a "quagmire" by toppling Saddam, it doesn't seem very prophetic to me. Iraq has fallen apart because it had a power vacuum just like Dick Cheney predicted in 1994 that they would (video below). 
Yup. Without Saddam, Iraq became vulnerable. Just as Dick Cheney predicted in 1994 ... 
Now that's what I call PROPHETIC.

Iraq War Deceptions

• O'Reilly falsely claimed Iraq had ricin. O'Reilly responded to a caller to his radio show by defending the Iraq war: "They did have ricin up there in the north -- so why are you discounting that so much?" In fact, the Duelfer report (the final report of the Iraqi Survey Group, led by Charles A. Duelfer, which conducted the search for weapons in Iraq following the U.S.-led invasion) indicates that Iraq did not have ricin. (10/19/04)

• O'Reilly repeated discredited claims on Iraq-Al Qaeda link. O'Reilly interrupted a former Clinton administration official who tried to correct the record on O'Reilly's claim that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi constitutes a direct link between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein's Iraq. He also allowed a conservative guest to repeat without challenge other discredited claims about Iraq's supposed involvement in terrorism -- claims O'Reilly has himself cited in the past. (9/27/04) 

O'Reilly treated Radio Factor listeners to a cornucopia of misinformation about intelligence, Iraq, terrorism May 11, 2006

Reminders: Dick Cheney made a killing in the Iraq War (by giving no bid oil contracts to a company he had stock in & ties to). Also, Dick Cheney had made it clear in 1994 that Iraq would fall apart if it was invaded. With the increase in terrorism by 600% by 2007, Dick Cheney was proven right.


Halliburton got $7B in no-bid Iraq contracts

During Vice President Dick Cheney's tenure as its chief executivethe Halliburton Corporation altered its accounting policies so it could report as revenue more than $100 million in disputed costs on big construction projects, public filings by the company show. Halliburton did not disclose the change to investors for over a year.

Vice President Dick Cheney’s stock options in Halliburton rose from $241,498 in 2004 to over $8 million in 2005, an increase of more than 3,000 percent, as Halliburton continues to rake in billions of dollars from no-bid/no-audit government contracts.

What do you want to do, stay there forever?
Invading countries on false pretenses or acting tough like a bully isn't a show of power but of weakness. Moral and structural (Democratic) weakness. A weakness which the GOP/Fox-News echo chamber is promoting AGAINST the interests of the country.
Yes, but by who? Why hasn't Bill O Reilly covered the fact that Solyndra was Dick Cheney's project yet? Because it destroy's his narrative of lies. 
Wall Street Journal is owned by Bill's boss. It's strange they don't mention this when they use WSJ articles or opinions.
