From the news, all I see is that the US has antagonized the region and induced more to seek revenge by way of terrorism.
Suicide bombings, terrorist activities, calls for the US to leave Afghanistan and Iraq.....increasing threats of violence on western targets.
The war in Iraq was wrong, and it was begun on false promises and evidence that there were WMDs and the US was in immediate danger. Now we have the stability of the region and security of associated countries spiraling down the toilet.
The US would have been in much less danger if Bush was never elected. What on earth did he expect? If he gets re-elected, I truly will seriously consider the general population down there to be idiots.
Anyway...back to the topic. There are no significant stocks of materials to build WMDs in Iraq, nevermind actual WMDs. If there were, they would be found by now. So, yes. If any are found I'm convinced they'd be planted by Bush supporters to help with his re-election effort. But there aren't any "legit" WMDs, and Bush knew it all along.
Here's my new forecast. The Iraqis are going to press hard for the coalition forces to leave. You know, the guys who want to give Iraqis freedom by outlawing political parties it deems inappropriate! Even if a US backed government is established, it won't last long. Once Saddam sees an opportunity he will regain power with the support of Syria and some Saudi nationals including OBL
and his crew. And if you thought the Iraqis were suffering before....look out. The US will of course retreat like before and allow several thousand to perish and suffer. Kind of like what's going on in Afghanistan right now.
