Wrong about everything


Always wrong, all the time

Instaputz has the following on Instacracker and Iraq, or the future Islamic Republic of Iraq, Moqtada Sadr, President.

Putz on Iraq: a timeline.

Since Putz has so generously offered to hold a symposium on what to do about the Great Victory in Iraq disaster, we thought this brief timeline would be useful for the participants.

9/11/01
Suggests attacks on WTC give Bush license to nuke Baghdad.

6/4/02
Suggests that Mohammed Atta met with Iraqi intelligence before 9/11 (and again on 8/4/02).

6/22/02
Promotes connection between Iraq and the Oklahoma City bombing.

8/13/02
Argues that invading Iraq is important for "psychological reasons", i.e., to humilate the Arab world.

8/29/02
Pooh-poohs worries about Iraq as a Vietnam-style trap in Iraq.

9/4/02
Promotes theory that Osama bin Laden is a puppet of Saddam Hussein.

9/6/02
Promotes Iraq-al Qaeda connection. Also once again promotes operational connection between Timothy McVeigh and Iraq.

9/14/02
Compares Scott Ritter, who was speaking out against a preemptive US invasion of Iraq, to surrenderist defenders of the Soviet Union and Pol Pot.

9/16/02
Suggests Saddam will have a nuclear weapon in three months.

9/28/02
Hypes Saddam's nuclear threat again.

3/26/03
Begins series of "they're not antiwar--they're just on the other side" posts.

6/1/03
Argues that things look "pretty good" in Iraq despite the press's "bogus looting stories" that were attempts to "hurt Bush."

7/11/03
Promotes connection between Saddam and Osama.

11/12/03
Insists that attacks in Iraq are akin to the Battle of the Bulge and not an indication things are going "badly." Claims that "anti-war types" want "America to lose" and "dance on our soldiers' graves" but doesn't name any.

4/6/04
Accuses Ted Kennedy of emboldening our enemies by comparing Iraq to Vietnam.

4/20/04
Accuses Michael Moore of giving "aid and comfort" to the terrorists.

7/19/04
Again promotes Saddam-al Qaeda connection.

3/23/05
Triumphantly announces that we're winning in Iraq and that the press is wrong. Predicts that it's only a matter of time before Ted Kennedy will be taking the credit for it. Also, brags that blogs like Instapundit helped "neutralize the psychological warfare" of the terrorists.

11/11/05
Accuses Democratic critics of the Iraq war of being unpatriotic and hurting our troops abroad.

12/18/05
Says Bush believes we're winning in Iraq and that he thinks it will be obvious by November 2006.

1/14/06
Calls John Murtha, who began publicly criticizing the war, a disgrace.

1/26/06
Announces that we're winning in Iraq again.

4/18/06
Calls generals who publcily criticized Rumsfeld "gutless."

5/9/2006
Says we're winning again, which you'd know if you were "paying attention."

6/8/06
On the death of Zarqawi, accuses the press of emboldening the terrorists.

6/26/06
Breathlessly promotes Rick Santorum's "discovery" of WMD in Iraq.

8/22/06
Compares Iraq to Iwo Jima.

8/26/06
Compares the violence in Iraq to the violence in Philadelphia. Says the war "isn't terribly bloody."

9/1/06
Promotes bogus data indicating that violence is down in Iraq. Has to post a correction shortly after.

9/17/06
Wonders why Bush doesn't invade Iran, since Iran is the cause of "much of the problem" in Iraq.

10/23/06
Calls Americans who are worried about Iraq "cranky."

12/03/06
Offers to run symposium about what to do about Iraq.
