Sad for my American friends, but this article provides an erudite and realistic assessment of the actual situation confronting American personnel in Iraq. It lists the why’s and wherefore’s of a very gloomy picture, quite the opposite of the false optimism the Bush Administration has been painting for Americans.
Remember the horrors of Vietnam?
Unfortunately, Iraq is far too valuable for Bush and his neo-cons to bite the bullet, cut US’ loses and make the decision to cleanly exit as Nixon did in Vietnam, as the appointment of Ahmad Chalabi as Iraqi Oil Minister has indicated.
Greed kills, and unfortunately in the Iraqi case, someone else's son or daughter!
