Mountain Dance & New York. I was there before the Twin Towers Fell, The Bombs began dropping In Iraq- and Hurricane Katrina, hit The Gulf Coast; so I'll be around when this current wave of madness ends. VIA *Jerichophenix *Cool *SmoothJAZZ *YouTube:

Scowcroft was a key player in pushing for the Gulf War — but opposed the 2003 invasion of Iraq over a decade later. "The War Behind Closed Doors" detailed the run-up to the 2003 invasion, including how Scowcroft pushed back against more hawkish voices:

All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.

The Fake News said I played golf today, and I did NOT! I had meeting in various locations, while closely monitoring the U.S. Embassy situation in Iraq, which I am still doing. The Corrupt Lamestream Media knew this but, not surprisingly, failed to report or correct!

Colin Powell, a real stiff who was very responsible for getting us into the disastrous Middle East Wars, just announced he will be voting for another stiff, Sleepy Joe Biden. Didn’t Powell say that Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction?” They didn’t, but off we went to WAR!

I was right about Vietnam. I was right about Iraq. I will do everything in my power to prevent a war with Iran. I apologize to no one.

Upon information and belief, Iran or its proxies are planning a sneak attack on U.S. troops and/or assets in Iraq. If this happens, Iran will pay a very heavy price, indeed!

Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!

To those many millions of people in Iraq who want freedom and who don’t want to be dominated and controlled by Iran, this is your time!

I voted against the Defense of Marriage Act. Biden voted for it. I voted against the war in Iraq. Biden voted for it. I voted against NAFTA and PNTR. Biden voted for them. It takes courage sometimes to do the right thing. #DemDebate 

Italy has banned weddings and funerals for 16 million people. Japan has closed schools for a month. France and Iraq have banned public gatherings. The U.N. has canceled all physical meetings to address climate change. Americans are uncertain what to do about Coachella.

Lt. Col. Vindman did his job. As a soldier in Iraq, he received a Purple Heart. Then he displayed another rare form of bravery — moral courage. He complied with a subpoena and told the truth. He upheld his oath when others would not. Right matters to him. And to us.
