One could literally put up post after post on the tragic stupidity of Paul Wolfowitz (still getting paid to utter his ever-erring pie whole)...and I guess I will take part.
There has been a good deal of comment—some of it quite outlandish—about what our postwar requirements might be in Iraq. Some of the higher end predictions we have been hearing recently, such as the notion that it will take several hundred thousand U.S. troops to provide stability in post-Saddam Iraq, are wildly off the mark. It is hard to conceive that it would take more forces to provide stability in post-Saddam Iraq than it would take to conduct the war itself and to secure the surrender of Saddam's security forces and his army—hard to imagine
And...of course, in spite of that little thing known as reality...Paul Wolfowitz declared "VICTORY!" (and HE went home). Behold the fruits of the easy victory.
The United Nations said on Sunday it had evidence that fighters from Islamic State (Isis) had killed as many as 670 prisoners in Mosul and had carried out further abuses in Iraq that amounted to crimes against humanity.
And least we can take comfort in Wolfowitz's other prediction that the Iraq War would pay for itself...at least if you are ISIS.

Hey, look on the bright side of life. We now have a fresh entity to terrify us all, conveniently named after a terrifying pagan goddess. The terror industry is good for at least another decade.

From a marketing point of view, you don’t introduce new products in August. Formal rollout next month. Figure at least another trillion dollars.

NYAHHH, depends on the definition of what ISIS. And the Big O's following the Wolfowitz/Blitzer PNAC Attack playbook across the entire Eurasian Megiddo front, from his Donbass war in the Nukraine and MessOpotamia to the Iron Dumb of the Gaza Ghetto GENOCIDES! Look out next for Slick Hilly OR the JEB Is UP ... REAL Beeyatches wanna go To TEHERAN!

Isn't ISIS basically a creation of our bestest buddies in the whole Middle East (after the settlers' colony in the Levant) Saudi Arabia and the Mini-Me neighboring Emirates? Isn;t this really just another example of The Carter Doctrine that created Al Qaeda?

Along with Deep State elements of the CIA, of course!

Wolfie, the 2nd dumbest fucking guy on the planet, after Doug Feith or practically any other neocon you can think of.
