Yes, the situation in Iraq is a mess, but this was going on before 9/11 when Saddam was refusing to cooperate with the UN and violating the treaty he signed. A murderous dictator has been removed from power, tried, and executed. The Iraqi people who were once oppressed are now free. It took Germany decades to fully recover after Nazi rule, we can't expect Iraq to suddenly be stable overnight. We need to develop a better plan to help them become independent and stable then leave.
After WWII there were still Nazi loyalists who still fought and terrorized the citizens. Do you know how that situation was handled? The US hired former SS and German soldiers to take care of them, they were called Werewolves. The order was simply to "make them go away". It didn't take long until they completed their job. This is what we need in Iraq, but due to political correctness and the lack of testicular fortitude of our leaders, it won't happen.
I Kinda took the After WW II statement about nazi symps to heart. PEOPLE LIKE PRESCOTT BUSH.
And wanabe Nazis Like Rupert Murdock. AND DANGED FOOLS (including Dumbya) Like YOU.
Pay attention That BAG you drop on your head with the X on it is not different from a HOOD.
The Bush INSTALLED government of Iraq, ACTING WITH THE FULL FAITH AND SUPPORT OF BUSH, HANGED SADDAM. Malawi, a reluctant Iraqi President says he wants OUT of that job because of INTERFERENCE from President Bush and his associates.
The price of oil is DEPENDENT on secure production and delivery of Oil, and Market Pressures. BUSH, by deciding to invade Iraq, greased the skids for China to Complete Oil Purchase Deals with a number of exporters, AND China paid premium, higher, prices. ERGO. Dumbya drove the price of gasoline up.
On Day ONE...in an effort to kill Saddam Hussain Bush ORDERED THE LAUNCHING OF A GUIDED BUNKER BUSTER INTO A DOWNTOWN IRAQ RESTAURANT, KILLING 32 INNOCENT IRAQI CIVILIANS. There was NO BUNKER UNDER THE RESTAURANT.
Ergo. BUSH KILLED INNOCENT IRAQIS.
Just as it took DEMOCRATIC Germany decades to recover from the harm done by the Third Reich it will likely take decades for the USA to recover from the damage done by the BUSH ADMINISTRATION AND THE CONSERVATIVE TAKEOVER OF CONGRESS.
I really don't see how you can speak so eloquently of great ideals and dreams, when you seem to think so uncritically of what the neo conservative movement actually means. OR of what FASCISM IS.
