Police are investigating the shooting of a business owner in the Feltonville section of Philadelphia early Thursday morning.
JerryB: Albert Speer noted, during his time in prison for war crimes during Hitler's regime, that the Nazi princes all spoiled themselves with CONSTANT PRAISE throughout the 1930's and the early years of the war so much, that when CHANGES, REASSESSMENTS, new PERSONNEL and IDEAS were needed, and when the war turned against them, they were UNABLE to pivot and admit their shortcomings and turn things around. SAME DEAL with Rummy, Bushy, Cheney, and the neocons. They BLEW IT AND THEY'RE TOO SUPREMELY ARROGANT to see how they messed up. Bush-Leaguer kept the SAME INCOMPETENTS in office even after his two unwinnable wars spiraled out of control. IRAQ REMAINS A PROBLEM because: 1) they went there on bad intel, which was not corroborated by back-up sources 2) the GOP squandered the Clinton-Gore surplus on WAR, and that's why we have crumbing big city and small town infrastructures and inefficient levees in New Orleans which added to Katrina's devastation 3) Rummy didn't wisely use Coalition forces to seal off the Iraqi borders, which allowed other terrorist cells to come in, join up with the dismantled and disgruntled Iraqi army, which led to the core leadership of ISIS 4) Rummy put in Paul Bremer and Paul Wolfowitz, two INCOMPETENT NEOCONS, WHO HAD NO MILITARY EXPERIENCE, no training in the Iraqi language, no experience as occupation generals or officials, and no understanding of the enmities between the Kurds, Shiias, Sunnis, or Coptic Christians in the land, in charge. They couldn't keep Iraq from devolving into sectarian strife, and then DENIED, along with Dissed Cheney, Geo. W. Booze, Conned-di Rice, etc. that Iraq was even in a civil war. ALL FACTS. Rumfed's OPINIONS ARE A JOKE. So is Trumped-up's. Donnie Mumps KNOWS EVEN LESS about the Middle East than the aforementioned, and he wants to be CHARGE OF IT ALL! (???) GOP = WTFlock???!!!
