Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

A Third of Americans Still Like Him?

[Iraq] not having weapons of mass destruction was a significant disappointment. I don't know if you want to call those mistakes or not, but they were -- things didn't go according to plan, let's put it that way.
- George W. Bush, Jan. 12, 2009

This man is our President. And here he is admitting that he is disappointed Iraq didn't have weapons of mass destruction.

He wishes, no he planned, that Saddam would have massive weapons. It was a mistake that the weapons weren't there.


He didn't say why he's disappointed. I hope it's not because it would have made the war more exciting, or that it would have made it more of a fair fight.

I hope it's not because he sold those weapons to Saddam and can't figure out where they went.

I assume he's disappointed there were no WMDs because he sold the war based on them and he's being judged.

But consider this. Which is the better outcome? You go to war because you think Saddam has WMDs and he doesn't have them, or you go to war because you think Saddam has WMDs and he really does? Isn't the former preferable? Wouldn't the latter have led to many more deaths on all sides?

One more week.
