[Content Note: War.]

This is an actual fucking headline: "GOP on Iraq: We told you so."

We told you that we should stay in Iraq forever. After we told you when we tricked the nation into this war that it was going to last six weeks.

The unmitigated temerity!
Sen. John McCain said Thursday that President Barack Obama’s entire national security team should resign over the resurgence of Islamic militants in Iraq.

"Everybody in his national security team, including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, ought to be replaced," the Arizona Republican told reporters ahead of a classified Senate Armed Services Committee briefing on the deteriorating situation in Iraq. "It's a colossal failure of American security policy."
Rage. Seethe. Boil.

This is a fucking game to them. It was a game when we launched this war, it was a game while George W. Bush was in office, a game then that was all about deflecting accountability, it's a game now while Barack Obama is in office, a game now that is all about hanging all the responsibility on him, a game that has never been about anything but oil and revenge and politics, a game that cares nothing for the human costs of this violent clusterfuck.
