Meet The Fatherless Creeps Who Put The Con In Neocon

The devious neocons are retelling the Iraq War narrative to shift blame for the $1T (choke, trillion) catastrophe and the deaths of nearly 4,500 U.S. soldiers and countless disabled walking wounded — and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis — onto the POTUS 44. That dog won't hunt for The Deadline Poet and it won't hunt for this blogger either. If this is (fair & balanced) rejection of revisionism, so be it.

All the neocons said we must conquer Iraq;
It could harbor a terrorist crew.
So invade it we did, and because of that fact,
What they made up has really come true. Ω
