Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) said on Thursday during a campaign stop in Iowa that “taking out Saddam Hussein turned out to be a pretty good deal,” according to multiple reports.
The Beast reported that Bush went on to say he didn’t want to hypothesize about what would have happened if his brother, former President George W. Bush, had not ordered the invasion of Iraq, which led to the toppling of Hussein.
“Then that’s back to the future and you could make a movie,” Jeb Bush said, according to the Beast.
Is that movie The Hurt Locker? Or is it In the Valley of Elah? Or some other purely fictional film about Iraq?
Bush has previously said “premature withdrawal” in Iraq created the void for the the Islamic State terror group.
I’m sure another Friedman Unit would have eliminated ISIS forever and the pure free market capitalist state his brother’s idiotic administration attempted to institute would not only have generated, but would have taken down Iran through the irresistible ideas of Milton Friedman as well!
