In 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell tried to warn President George W. Bush that if he invaded Iraq, he would “own it.”
Bush and his war-planners were nothing if not confident (cocky would best describe it). They thought sure we’d be in and out in a month.
Well, The Law of Unintended Consequences hit Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and all the rest pretty hard. Not to mention the casualties suffered by our soldiers and the Iraqi people.
