    George W. Bush listened to those on the right who told him that a quick strike in Afghanistan would lead to a perfect conclusion. A year later he was listening to the same people who told him that if we simply invaded Iraq in three months we would be out of Iraq and able to attack either Syria or Iran. Needless to say the right-wing lunatics were totally wrong. What is amazing is that those same right-wing lunatics have learned NOTHING from the experiences of their Decider in Chief who followed there every delusion. Yet we still read them on this forum. Lunatics who have no comprehension of military reality, who think all that the USA or Israel has to do is say 'boo' and Iran will collapse into a state of docile submission. What can anyone do about the lunatic right? Not much. They are totally out of touch with reality. And they are incapable of intelligent discussion.
