makin' progress

One could argue that since we declared war, invaded and subsequently occupied Iraq, that things have been getting better (that is if you are a recovering cocaine addict as is our current head of state). Otherwise, such an assertion would be fatuous. Every since major military operations ended in Iraq some four years ago, we have still been conducting major military operations. Not to mention, inconsistent and running water, electricity and high unemployment was unheard of prior to our invasion and is now a daily reality for some 70 to 80 percent of the Iraqi populous.

Add to that the fact that the government we installed is basically dissolved, with leading figures such as Judge Radhi al-Radhi, who ran the Public Integrity Commission set up by Paul Bremer recently resigned due to death threats (a fortune for him since a substantial number of politicians we have installed have already been killed).

We were told that the troop surge was supposed to reduced the insurgency and create an environment for a democratic government to function. Instead, it has gotten worse, with almost 4000 troops to date loosing their lives, another 20,000 wounded and now there are recent reports of a cholera epidemic in the North of the country that is heading down stream. All of this, 7 years after 911.

The President and his assorted collection of puppets still say we are making progress. Which indicates to me that his only strategy for the country is to leave office and have the mess there for another administration or more to clean up.
This if such is the case, it means that his plan has only fostered Sunni extremism, an environment ripe for sectarian and civil conflict and more than 1000 attacks on US forces weekly. Truth is we destroyed Iraq and do not even care nor count the number of Iraqi civilians that have been killed or wounded. Yep, we are making progress – progress toward being the most hated country in all of the Arab world.

Thats the problem with people in recovery (our ex-cocaine addict president)they think in absolutes and its all or nothing (you are either with us or against us).

This whole thing could have been taken care of back in 1992 if his daddy pulled a Reagan and bombed Saddam like we bombed Khadafy.

You nailed it with this posting. As for Bush--I keep hoping to wake up and find out that past years of King George and his regime have just been some horrific nightmare brought upon by too much Italian food and cabernet before going to bed...sigh.

haha...great read dr. stephens...i was hoping someone could show me the memo where the iraqis asked the us to help them set up a democracy...wtf?...the us doesn't even have a successful democracy and they are always trying to help others...and that's only if you believe that bullshit rhetoric...i wonder when bush will go to trial and then we can watch as he is executed:)..can't wait for that, but i won't hold my breath...
