        January 2001 is two years away and the vast majority of his presidency won't be on-topic for a lot longer, we haven't even gotten to the last year of Clinton yet.

        George Bush has cured AIDS in Africa and is without question the most influential person in pushing for the cure of AIDS and its not even close. This is something that left leaning gay rights groups have to grit their teeth and admit too which is kind of funny.

          He also did a lot for prison reform. Yeah, it still has its issues, but the lawlessness of prisons in the US has essentially disappeared. significantly reducing inter-prison violence, rape murder and gang formations.

            Further, Obama and Trump both sponsored efforts to reduce the number of Federal prisoners as they're twice as expensive to house as state level inmates.

            Most of them are in for white collar crimes like scams and frauds which can just as easily be prosecuted at the state level, only certain offenses like counterfeiting or postal frauds auto-default to the Federal level to prosecute.

            It was mostly the South and West that had violent, animal-like prisons with gangs and ass rape while the Northeast's prisons were comparatively civilized and Aryan Nation shit was not popular there.

    Biggest geopolitical frickup of the century? Literally trillions of USD wasted on Iraq for no real material benefit to the US.
    Invading Afghanistan was a no-brainer due to 9/11 and contrary to popular belief it was actually pretty well executed aside from Bin Laden's escape into Pakistan at Tora Bora. If they had nailed him them and then there it would've been remembered as a roaring success.
    Iraq war is inexcusable however, nothing to be gained from that even in the best case scenario.

      tbf iraq used to be a genuine threat, with the 3rd largest armed forces in the world, with 50% of the earths oil within arms reach

      now they are a failed state, and will be for the rest of our lives. Its actually a shame the US didn't use the 1991-2007 period to destroy a few other shithead countries

        We already crippled Iraq in 1991, the 2003 war was a complete waste of time.

      It was perfectly executed, the real frick up was General Tommy Franks. The CIA team, the special forces, and the Northern Alliance had dethroned the Taliban and had them and AQ backed up in the Tora Bora cave complex in the course of a few months, but it was Franks who declined places any personal on the other side of the cave complex after Gary Bernsten requested it. This request made its way up to Donald Rumsfield who asked why he wasnt placing men to block off a potential escape route and he was told that its because the mountain ranges were too dangerous to navigate. Rumsfield said something like "Hell Im an old man and I ski more dangerous
      mountain than that"

        Another thing was trying to enforce democracy in Afghanistan, which was destined for failure. The old king was still alive and could have represented an Afghanistan before the Soviets and especially the Taliban rule. yet, these asshats were committed, and look where we ended up.

          To be honest I think it's genuinely scarier to think that the government really did believe its own party line about liberal democracy and that what we saw in action was a wholehearted genuine attempt at implementing it onto 2 wartorn countries with no tradition of functional civic institutions.
