  •  Iraq is a soveriegn nation...except when it isn't. (none)
    I love it how the US and UK go out of their way to promote the fiction that Iraq is a sovereign nation, managing its own affairs.  It's a sovereign nation...until it wants to do things that sovereign nations do, like putting killers in jail.  Then the British Army is breaking into those jails with tanks to release people who killed Iraqi policemen ?!  This is crazy and it should serve as a wakeup call to the Iraqis that they won't be free in their own country until the occupiers are gone.
    •  The wake-up call has been duly noted ... (none)
      ... apparently. All hell is breaking lose over this.

      That is pretty damn ignorant.  The Iraqis know this, they have known it for hundreds of years.  Read some goddamn history before you toss off stupid remarks like that please.

      Their entire history has been that 'wake up call'.

        I should prefaced that.  "If there were any question, then..."

          ..I am sorry for the vehementness of my reaction.  It is ust that every single non-American in the world knew this would happen.  We told you and you ignored us, and now you think you have learnt something new.  It is very frustrating.

          What America needs is a decent educaton system.
