Idiotic Lindsey Graham: Iraq 'another 9/11 in the making'

Lindsey Graham is an idiot and doesn't know a thing about foreign policy.
Lindsey Graham is an idiot and doesn't know a thing about foreign policy.
The United State has strangled themselves in an unwinnable situation in Iraq. The Operation Iraqi Freedom did nothing to "spread democracy" or make the region stable, but rather it set off a bloody civil war between Sunnis and Shias, and persists to this day.

Manning says US public lied to about Iraq from the start

New York (AFP) - The detained US soldier convicted of leaking a trove of secret documents to WikiLeaks made a rare foray into public life Saturday to warn Americans they were being lied to about Iraq once more.

Chelsea Manning is serving a 35-year prison sentence on espionage charges and other offenses for passing along 700,000 secret documents, including diplomatic cables and military intelligence files, to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks in the largest-scale leak in US history.

"I understand that my actions violated the law. However, the concerns that motivated me have not been resolved," the soldier formerly known as Bradley Manning wrote in a New York Times editorial.

"As Iraq erupts in civil war and America again contemplates intervention, that unfinished business should give new urgency to the question of how the United States military controlled the media coverage of its long involvement there and in Afghanistan."

Jeff Miller (R - FL): Man-made climate change is "foolish"

Rep. Jeff Miller on climate change: "it's not settled science"

Rep. Jeff Miller is a Republican Congressman from the state of  Florida, and he was on MSNBC to talk about climate change.

"It's not settled-science," said Miller right after declaring that, "I'm not a scientist." Then maybe you should let the scientist have their say if you're not a scientist, and drink a tall glass of 'shut up' juice. Fact of the matter is over 97% of the scientists agree that global warming is cased by human intervention, so the science is very settle on this.

Then he went on to say to the most craziest thing I've heard in a while: "The issue of climate change has been happening for a long time. And for us to be able to think that we can change what's going on is foolish."

It's foolish to NOT do anything about global warming. As a matter of fact, things we do improve climate change, even though it might not happening, can't be bad. It can't be bad to cut down on carbon emissions are move towards a greener economy. It can't be bad to invest in alternative fuel sources that has the potential to create numerous jobs.
