Michael Ledeen Wants 'Us' to 'Destroy Radical Islamism'

Michael Ledeen wants a new American war on “radical Islamism”. This is the man who in his efforts to get the U.S. to attack Iraq wrote in 2002:
He [Brent Scowcroft] fears that if we attack Iraq ‘I think we could have an explosion in the Middle East. It could turn the whole region into a cauldron and destroy the War on Terror.’

One can only hope that we turn the region into a cauldron, and faster, please. If ever there were a region that richly deserved being cauldronized, it is the Middle East today. If we wage the war effectively, we will bring down the terror regimes in Iraq, Iran, and Syria, and either bring down the Saudi monarchy or force it to abandon its global assembly line to indoctrinate young terrorists. That’s our mission in the war against terror.

Let Ron Paul Help You Fight Back Against Neocons on Iraq

The neocons cannot stand that Ron Paul was right on Iraq. 

They ridiculed him as he argued -- beginning at least in 1998 -- against another US attack. They ignored his hundreds of House Floor speeches, television appearances, weekly columns, and more.

It wouldn't cost a penny, they assured us, because a grateful Iraqi population would be more than happy to re-pay the US for their liberation. 

As Iraq burns, the neocons are still claiming to be "experts." They are still demanding that we listen to their brilliant analysis and advice.

Jennifer Rubin: We Won The Iraq War!

Reality never seems to phase neocon commissar, Jennifer Rubin. Last year marked 10 years since the dreaded US invasion of Iraq, and most of her fellow neocons had the sense to keep a low profile. Even they knew not to draw attention to such an abysmal failure.

But not Rubin! She was perplexed, and ready to deny reality like a good trooper. Why were her fellow gang members so reticent? ''Where are the Iraq War Defenders?' went the headline...

Let's Play Time Machine With Thomas Friedman

Sadly, Thomas Friedman is still acceptable in polite society. As a complement to Dr. Paul's commentary this week on Iraq, watch the below clip from the not-so-distant past, recorded just over a month after the US attacked Iraq, and remind yourselves why it is a shame he is not ostracized. If he has apologized for his comments in this interview, I have not been able to find it.

Friedman, occupying his own linguistic universe, justifies the US attack on Iraq because there was a "terrorist bubble" in the 1990s which "said flying planes into the World Trade Center was OK."
