Re: “Corker vs. Ford: Who Won the Battle of Wilson Air?

A Memphis Democrat against the Fords Why trust Ford on Iraq? Ford was an early proponent of the war. In December 2001, he joined with Trent Lott and others in a letter to Congress advocating the removal of Saddam Hussein. What was his justification? This was well before the Bush propaganda machine began “cooking the books��? for the war. The only remotely legal basis to move against Iraq militarily was UN Resolution 1440 concerning WMD. This was not a proposal to invade a sovereign nation to change its government, no matter how reprehensible Hussein was/is. This invasion was a violation of international law. With the resulting chaos and death that has ensued, Bush et al should be considered war criminals. After advocating the war, Ford voted for the war. At least some said no. As Iraq spiraled into civil war and chaos, Ford continued to sign on to the war as Ford hails "my friend President Bush.��? Ford’s only initial criticism was that “we just didn’t send in enough troops.��? Ford has yet to show any outrage at this administration’s willful manipulation of the evidence for and against Iraqi WMD. Now, the Iraqi war is the worst geo-political mistake in the history of this country, one Ford personally advocated and supported. And what does Ford come up with, the brilliant idea of dividing Iraq into three separate states. This policy show just how badly the war has gone. It is a policy that has resulted from failure not success. The fact that Ford assumes that he or the US will have a say in the eventual break up of Iraq shows the same bad judgment that got the US into this war in the first place.
