    To commemerate the 5th Anniversary of the Iraq War, SLATE has been publishing mea culpas and apologies from prominent former War supporters. Most of these mea culpas are weak, thin gruel. Mostly they are admssions of some errors, but filled with childish whines about "can't we forget the past, forget who is to blame, not worry about who was right and who was wrong, and just move forward?"

    Yeah, like the surgeon who totally botches your surgery and disables you for life. Like you ever want to forget what they did, or that their judgement should never be trusted again.

    This is what a real apology for the Iraq War looks like, from a former republican and former war cheerleader:

    So....the French were right. Bush tried to push his "get rid of french fries" agenda even to the point of being water cooler topic. Many Americans fell for it.

    Now we all know bush cooked the facts and dismissed anyone's opinion who discented.

    Bush will eventually be seen as one of the greatest Presidents we have ever had. I do see, (and it makes me sick) is he didn't push for leveling and making glass out of every country over there. Either get out and let them alone, or go all the way. No half ass.

    Bush never even came up with anything to do with freedom fries, some boob in NC near where I live did.

    And we ALL are still waiting for that evidence Bush cooked anything.

    jreeves: "I've been taking it up the ass from bush and sucking him off so much for the last seven years, that I forgot that CBO chronically underestimates the cost of the war, and the 3 trillion dollar estimate takes into account other incremental costs, that the CBO number doesn't include. I love Bush!"

    You obviously didn't even bother reading the article dumbass. You were too busy sucking bush off. If you want to call me a liar, then at least read the fucking article, instead of daydreaming about taking it up the ass from your hero, Bush. The authors documented the incremental costs of your war, that the government doesn't account for.

    You still think your war was a great idea, and you obviously are in love with George Bush. Your opinions are meaningless. Piss off bush lover.
