    ...Just to clarify, the Bush administration is just so clueless on the middle east, they thought they could win the support of Iraqi's by proxy; Just because they eliminated Husseins rule. The people who knew what they would be up against, the Generals who knew what you are saying were fired before going into Iraq. This tells me that democratization of Iraq has never been a goal of the Bush administration. They just wanted to set up another U.S. puppet government and call it a democracy.

    As Iraq fell apart, as it was bound to do, the Iraqi people realized we were just occupiers, not liberators. As a result of the Bush administrations miscalculation we have been losing many lives. Granted, the terminally ignorant wingers jumped on board as a result and now call for leveling the place because those damned Iraqi's are just ungrateful, right?

    I should also state, there are those in Iraq who don't want a democratic Iraq and are working to prevent democracy, in direct contravention of the will many of the moderate people there. We could have kept those people in check if democratization had been our real goal. But George Bush's little mid east experiment in empire has gone horribly awry and we are all going to pay the price for it for years to come.

    It really just reaches down to the depths of cluelessness that inhabits every thought within this administration and its supporters. Has there ever been a U.S. administration, SCLM, and electorate so devoid of any concept of consensus reality in our history?
