    One of the major turning points of this war was when the US could not execute the fake warrant for Sadr's arrest.  That signaled that he had real power and it was only a matter of time before he started flexing that muscle.

    The parallels to Viet Nam are now becoming uncanny.  Russian and Chinese military equipment smuggled through a sympathetic neighbor.  This will go on as long as we want it to.

      The people we decided to f with this time not only have that weird want for self determination, but they have lots of their OWN money too, whether they are taking it from reconstruction projects or not.
