Our old pal, former President "Dhimmi" Carter is at it again. That man's just not smart enough to shut his piehole.
FALLON, Nev. - Former President Jimmy Carter said Wednesday major policy changes are needed because the Iraq war has divided the nation "almost as much as Vietnam."
"So there's no doubt that our country is in much more danger now from terrorism than it would have been if we would have done what we should have done and stayed in Afghanistan," he said on the campaign trail with his son, Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jack Carter.
The former president said the Bush administration made a "terrible mistake" by invading Iraq and diverting troops from Afghanistan.
OK, we "would have done what we should have done and stayed in Afghanistan?" Last time I checked, we still have troops in Afghanistan. If his argument is that we need more troops there, make that argument. But saying that we left is an outright lie. It is worth noting that during the 80s, the Russians maintained a troop level of about 100,000 troops in Afghanistan. And we all know how well they did there.
As far as the country being divided, that wasn't caused by the Iraq war. The division started in the aftermath of the 2000 Presidential election, when a gaggle of sore losers decided to do everything they could to make the Bush Presidency fail.
I should probably cut Dhimmi Carter a break. After all, he is old, he was a miserable failure as a President, and his backside probably still smarts from the buggering the Iranians gave him back in 1979-1980. But I'm not the forgiving type. Besides, we're at war. So shut the hell up, Dhimmi.
