The statue pull down in North Caroline today (8/15/2017) was eerily reminiscent of the Saddam statue pull down after the initial invasion of Iraq. George Bush shortly declared victory. That was, um, 15 or so years ago. A couple trillion and a lot of legs lost later we are still fighting there. Apparently these idiots pulling down this statue think we should emulate the behavior of Iraqis, and make decisions through mob action in the same way that gave rise to ISIS. Apparently the idiots in charge of the government in North Carolina are going to let them. And you wonder why half the country cannot tolerate the other half? It’s obvious.
