Since the Trump regime took over the White House, a strange thing has happened and many Americans started thinking that George W Bush wasn’t such a bad President after all. In the immortal words of the Donald himself, WRONG.
When he was President, George W Bush started a disastrous foreign war in Iraq, and we’re still paying the price for that war today. With Trump’s unprovoked attack in Syria (without Congressional approval), it seems like war in the Middle East is the song that never ends.
Sounds like we as Americans could use a healthy reminder why starting wars in the “graveyard of Empires” is a bad idea. Enter the off-Broadway play, Baghdaddy (or How I Started the Iraq War), which shows how faulty intelligence mixed with imperfect humans can produce a rush to war… plus jokes!
“An important, cunning rock solid musical comedy… offering an absurd yet apparently plausible explanation for how the United States went to war in Iraq.”
Here’s a video preview of the live theater action:
Here’s what the Baghdaddy’s producer had to say about it:
“If you like searing political satire, rock and rap music, Jon Stewart, The Daily Show, The Onion, SNL, if you’ve ever posted or liked a funny political meme on social media, you’re going to love this show.”
This musical comedy is a timely reminder why George W Bush was a horrible President, so spread the word to your friends and family to remind them that bad intelligence, Republicans war profiteers, and imbecile Presidents are a bad mix.
Given that we’re halfway to World War III with the Donald’s international incompetence and multi-million dollar missile provocations, this prescient play may also help inform and inspire resisters around the country to rise up and halt the current run-up to war.
Especially with Trump already dropping bombs in the Middle East before he’s even had 100 days in the Oval Office, everyone could use a little inspiration to help stop a war before it begins. The country you save may be your own.
