• In 2006, President Bush Warned of Everything That’s Now Happening in Iraq

    Was he The Great Soothsayer? Or was he simply using common sense? At this point, it probably doesn’t matter. But in September of 2006, then-President George W. Bush outlined the dangers America would face if we were to prematurely withdraw from Iraq. It wasn’t the only time Bush warned of such things, but this may have been the most detailed example, as he outlined the various stages of how World War III would begin on the heels of a so-called “Caliphate” coming to fruition.

    The first stage is to expel the Americans from Iraq,” said Bush. “The second stage is to establish an Islamic authority, and then develop it and support it until it achieves the level of caliphate. The third stage: extend the jihad wave to secular countries neighboring Iraq. And the fourth stage: the clash with Israel.”

    Democrats mocked and ridiculed this man to no end, and yet, he knew exactly what would happen under the leadership of a future Commander-in-Chief who doesn’t have the willpower that he did. He knew that one needs only to listen to the enemy to know exactly what its intentions are. I may be going out on a limb here, but I’m guessing this is the type of knowledge that a president consumes when they actually read their Presidential Daily Briefing and ask questions of the appropriate military and intelligence heads. Perhaps if a warning of the Caliphate aired on ESPN, the current White House occupant might have noticed.

    Oh yeah, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t hear the word “jayvee” anywhere in there.
