Grim reality

Back after a long delay. Hope anyone's reading. Nothing on Mel Gibson today; his actions speak for themselves. Time to talk about Iraq, a real issue.


The war in Iraq has been a complete disaster. I defy any war supporter to claim otherwise. The country is at the verge of civil war (ignore administration mouthpieces that claim otherwise). The government of Iraq, primarily Shia and put in power by American forces and blood, is anti-American, anti-Israeli, and anti-Western. Proof? Thousands of Shia a few days ago burned American and Israeli flags and chanted death to America and Israel. Way to go, Mr.President. Establishing an anti-American government in Iraq was well worth a few thousand American casualties. Good job.

On the Israel-Hezbollah conflict, here's a great article by Jonathan Chait.
