Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I posted a comment in January of 2007, right after the newly appointed Shiia regime hanged Saddam Hussain. I find the pundits reaction of surprise in the way things have turned out in that region to be quite puzzling and amusing at the same time.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

We have sealed the fate of Iraq with this last attrocity. Secular Baathists have been deprived of a leading figure, with the Baathist in disarray more of the Sunni energy will go into Al-Qaeda like organizations. Saudi's will step into help the Wahabi Sunnis and the Iranians will increase their influence. But the US will be pulling both strings, Saudis can not sneeze without the US's knowledge and the Shiias depend on the US for protection. If Iran is going to support the Shiias in Iraq, they will have to do it with the US's knowledge. It's the old Iran-Iraq war all over. We provided chemical weapon and intelligence to Iraq and sent missiles and rockets to Iran through Israel. Iraq will be the ground where US will play a game of chess with the Saudi and Iranian pieces. We'll control the strategic, economic, and political strings of the region, we'll control the friend and the enemy..... There is no other way to transfer the Saudi, Iraqi, and Iranian money to the coffers of the MIC(military industrial complex) than a civil war in Iraq. There is no faster way of transferring the wealth of middle class to the super rich but an endless war, and there is no other way of controling a fearful population but a endless string of bogeymen. We created and killed Zarqawi and Saddam and we will create and kill a many more before we are done with this twisted dance of death.

Do you think that things in Iraq are going according to the plan?
