Jeb Bush blames Clinton, Obama for rise of ISIS and says overthrowing Saddam Hussein ‘a pretty good deal’.
Jeb Bush’s comment was disgraceful and callous. Saddam Hussein was an evil person, but he provided a degree of stability to the region. Without a strongman in control we see what has happened. The Sunni vs Shia hatred has been unleashed and the rise of ISIS is directly a result of Saddam being taken out without a game plan for what happens after. Dismantling the Iraqi army once Saddam was overthrown was a huge mistake piled on top of already a misguided war.
Besides, the war in Iraq was predicated on fictitious “weapons of mass destruction” that never existed. The war against Iraq cost nearly five thousand American lives and resulted in the murder of perhaps 100 thousand innocent Iraqi civilians. It also created at least 32,000 wounded soldiers. Oh and it also cost 3 trillion dollars. Jeb’s statement is exactly why he is unfit to be President. The sense of entitlement we have seen so many times in the Bush family has to end. None of them ever served, nor their children. The Bush’s are a disgrace.
