    The most unspoken element about these debates is that the dubya war on Iraq  was won by Iran.

    The Iraqis pretty much hate us for destroying their country

     I always wonder about the terminology...The guys fighting us there were insurgents...or were they Iraqi patriots fighting the foreign invaders and occupiers.  My problem with calling the whole Iraq war, and 99% of the Afghan war, nothing more than an ego exercise by a weak president and an oil grab is that I also want to show the greatest respect for the families of our brave young men and women who were mislead into fighting and dying or came home in pieces.  In Afghanistan we should have limited our action to special forces and other specialized troops hunting al Qaeda only.
