I am happy that we are out, and yes not a day too soon. However, only 4,415 Americans have died in seven years, very wonderful.
What's more, according to BBC News, they're out a fortnight early :) They've been there seven and a half years, and yet they can say "We're out two weeks early", as if they had an inkling it'd go on for 7 years 6 months and 2 weeks! How very precise of them. Maybe next they can gague the exact length of time they've been in Afghanistan and see if they can get out of there early too :^)
The fact that "only" 4,415 of my brothers and sisters lost their lives is wonderful to you? Not one drop of American blood should have touched the soil of Iraq. Bush and Obama are murderers. One started this nonsense and the other kept it going. Where's the WMDs and what happened to Obama's promise of being out of Iraq within the first 6 months of his presidency? All of this bloodshed for one man to be hanged.
I think he was being sarcastic; making a comment on how the propaganda works. Let us not forget all the Iraqis that have died from the US involvement as well. Or the other nations that were in Iraq. None of these people should be dead.
"All of this bloodshed for one man to be hanged," indeed.
I'm glad no one cares that the impossible happen. Women voting in the heart of the middle east and Al-qaeda and Iran lost an other battle. That what I'm thankful for.
Al-Qaeda would not have been fighting (much) in Iraq if Saddam had remained. Rights, democracy; these are important, but at what cost?
And should they be arbitrarily imposed upon populaces who may never otherwise achieve it, even at great cost?
That is a question I don't have the answer to.
Actually, the Iraq War helped Iran a lot, because it removed their main regional counterbalance. It'll take a long time for the Iraqi army to regain its pre-war strength, and even then, the Iraqi government will almost certainly be more pro-Iranian (or at least least less anti-Iranian) than the Hussein regime. So, good news, Iraq has a democratic government (assuming they work out the political standoff). Bad news, we just handed Iran a victory on a silver platter.
BTW, you do know that the Islamic Republic of Iran and Al Qaeda *hate* each other, don't you?
Iraq will remain a warzone. 50,000 US troops and many many more blackwater variety mercenaries will certainly perpetrate untold atrocities of which US citizens will never hear about. Restoring democracy in a place that's never had such a thing, what a grand accomplishment. Too bad only a million Iraqi's died so that 'democracy' could be 'restored' in a place that's never had such a thing. What a grand accomplishment for the Satanic forces, I mean Bush family and USGOV May they feed their desires for death and blood with a new war soon!
