    Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) took to the House floor yesterday to condemn the silence in Washington – in both the White House and Congress — regarding the massacres of Christians in Iraq (especially) and the rest of the Middle East.

    Why is Washington silent, he asks?

    Here’s why.

    Christian leaders in Iraq have put the blame for these atrocities squarely on George W. Bush and his invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003.

    Half a million Christians have fled Mosul. Any who remain will be slaughtered.

    Patriarch Louis Raphael I Sako, head of Iraq’s Catholic Church, says that the invasion did what Moslems couldn’t do in 1500 years: destroy Christianity in Iraq.

    Thus, Republicans are afraid. If they acknowledge the genocide, they fear that people will remember that it was their war that led to it. So they are silent.

    Democrats are too busy attacking Christianity in the U.S.

    So both parties, corrupt to the core, are silent on this holocaust.

    As this writer has repeatedly, and sadly, observed on these pages for the last decade and more, the neocons never admit their mistakes, and they never, **ever** apologize.

    Since the man sitting in the Oval Office happens to have (D) after his name. Where were they in the aftermath of the Iraq War?

    I didn't know Iraq was absolutely peaceful from 2003 to 2009.

    They just blame the "other guy". Just like the "other guy" does. :rolleyes:

    Therein lies the truth behind every argument on this board and why they are all absurd. There is but one "good" team, and that team is not a member of this world. To argue, to the point of hatred, for either is spitting on the very thing we all claim to believe... and there are no innocents!

    thisnumbersdisconnected is the king of insults and hate filled replies on BB and this, as he seems to be claiming at every opportunity is what real "credibility" is supposed to look like and if we don't believe him we're either idots, liberals, marxists, conspiracy theorists or moonbats.
