Fox has this, but, it bears repeating.
A prophetic warning from then-President George W. Bush before he left office about what would happen if the U.S. withdrew troops from Iraq too soon is getting new attention in light of the Islamic State’s gains, as each of his predictions appears to be coming true.
Bush, as discussed on “The Kelly File,” made the remarks in the White House briefing room on July 12, 2007, as he argued against those who sought an immediate troop withdrawal.
“To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States,” Bush cautioned.
He then ticked off a string of predictions about what would happen if the U.S. left too early.
“It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to Al Qaeda.
“It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.
“It would mean we allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan.

Of course, this wasn’t a hard call for anyone other than a Dim, or an American hating bastard, but, then, I’m being redundant. That isn’t to say there aren’t American hating Repubs, there clearly are. But, Bush told us what would happen if we left Iraq too early. He tried to tell the lunatics coming in. But, immediate imagery is much more important to leftards than people. It’s as simple as that. Bush told us, and everyone else already knew these things. But, leftards don’t care about such things like the protection of the American people. Or, any people, for that matter. It’s always ideology before people.
