George Bush's 2007 Prophetic Warnings Haunt Obama In 2014

By Susan Duclos, via All News PipeLine

Say what you will about George Bush, as a conservative I had quite a few criticisms of his words and actions while he was the President, but in 2007 when he ordered a surge in Iraq while critics were hammering him to start withdrawing troops, including Barack Obama who was campaigning for president at the time, Bush offered a prediction that has become prophetic as we watch Barack Obama put boots on the ground in Iraq once again.

Key quotes from that speech include "To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq,  for the region and for the United States." Bush also stated "It would mean that we'd be risking mass killings on a horrific scale." Bush continued "It would mean we'd be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous."

On Wednesday, September 9, 2014, Barack Obama announced that he was sending troops back into Iraq to fight ISIS, inarguably an "an enemy that is even more dangerous."
