The civil war in Iraq
The tens of thousands of Iraqi dead, wounded and homeless from our bullets and bombs will burn in the memory of many generations of Muslims to come, and the brutal psychological effects of intense warfare on the 130,000 future U.S. veterans saddled with nightmares and family problems is only now just beginning to dawn on many. Why did it need to cost so much and for who's benefit? We have paid dearly just to hold the exploding bomb.
What did the federal gov-mint really think was gonna happen when they artificially granted the majority group (Shias) the right to vote their own people into power? In this Churchill created divide and conquer oil principality the only logical outcome would be sectarian violence. Mark another victory for truth, democracy and the American way!
It boggles the mind that the insulated poo-bahs in DC are now acting surprised at the strife torn outcome. Could these people: Condi Rice, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and Shrub, possibly be some of the dumbest political leaders of all time? This ill-advised military invasion ranks right up there with the vain arrogance and stupidity of the Nazis when they invaded the U.S.S.R., while simultaneously fighting the French and British on a western front. The smoking ruins of that debacle still fill the nostrils with the bitter smell of annihilation and the horrific death and injury of millions. Could Condi be as much of an idiot as Ribbentrop? Rummy as solicitously slimy as Jodl? Cheney as fat and happy as Goering? And the solemn Shrub posed with little children and cute animals just like der Fuhrer?
These silly comic book characters are all now about to reap their harvest of sorrow and I can't wait to witness the sordid end of their cynically written plot line.
A good article on the Iraqi civil war from today:
