If you have no idea who or what Leeroy Jenkins is, here is the original video [link]
A Leeroy Jenkins is basically a gamer who has no time for plans and simply storms right into the battlefield, ruining the rest of the teams plans.
The real inspiration for this picture came from this remix of the video [link] I just kept seeing America storming right into a minefield with a bunch of countries stumbling after.
Seriously, in those days Europe saw America as the worlds Leeroy Jenkins.
Also Saddam was a seriously fucked up person.
and i find this endlessly hilarious.
I had been hoping to see the state department hanging in to America's ankles screaming "NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!"
Just about the entire diplomatic section of America at the time were screaming that this would only lead to pain, ruin and disaster...
...and were summarily ignored.
You forgot the part where our government spread lies about Iraq and used a terrorist attack to get us hyped up about getting revenge just so we could get oil -.-
