On top of being an imbecile, Michelle Bachmann is a horrible, horrible person. This interview she did on Face the Nation beggars belief. She is furious that the US is bringing troops back from Iraq after 8 years, and is offended that Iraqis have so little respect for, and fear of, the country that invaded it for no good reason, destroying its infrastructure and killing tens or even hundreds of thousands of its citizens.
Not only that, she believes that the Iraqi government should have to reimburse the US for what it has spent invading and then occupying Iraq:
The problem is we’ve put a lot of deposit into this situation with Iraq, and to think that we are so disrespected and they have so little fear of the United States that there would be nothing that we would gain from this — that’s why I called on President Obama to return to the negotiating table.
The Obama administration has said they got everything they wanted. They got exactly nothing.
I believe that Iraq should reimburse the United States fully for the amount of money that we have spent to liberate these people. They’re not a poor country; they’re a wealthy country.
