I'M WITH BABS...
Barbra Streisand writes in a recent article on her website that if ever there was a time in history to impeach a President of the United States, it would be now. She wants to know, "If Not Now ... When?"
I'm with Babs on this one, and I agree that it's at least two years too late. Just think, if we had done what was right for this nation -- for the world -- back in 2003 when we learned that there were no WMD in Iraq and that every member of the Bush administration hit the airwaves; went to the United Nations, with endless lies and that Americans and Iraqis were being slaughtered for no good reason -- we could have prevented worldwide grief and anguish. We would not be the most hated nation in the world. And we might have saved our republic.
As Streisand says, "Why would you invade a country if there was still a chance for peace? Shouldn't war be an absolute last resort? We went to war because we were misled. And we should be angry because of the 2,000 American soldiers and the 200 armed coalition forces that have died. We should be livid because of the 15,000 American soldiers that have been horribly maimed and wounded. We should be disgusted because of the 30,000 innocent Iraqi civilians that have been killed and the 20,000 that are wounded after administration officials claimed that the US was going to liberate the Iraqi people.
"When does it stop? It stops with the indictment and impeachment of this corrupt, power-hungry, greedy group of incompetent leaders. How many more have to die before this happens?" Streisand asks. "We were clearly deceived by this administration and now we find ourselves fighting a war under false pretenses."
Streisand is correct when she says the Bush gang disregarded the facts because they wanted to wage war and, as the Downing Street memo clearly stated, were eagerly "fixing" the facts to fit their agenda.
She claims "This President will go down as the worst president in American history," and says the words of Harry Truman's famous statement keeps ringing in her brain -- "I wonder how many times you have to be hit on the head before you find out who's hitting you?"
I don't know about you, but I'm with Babs.
