No need for pity, I think, hell, I know that I see it differently.
Yes, and that's what is so sad.
I have never called this easy or a walk in the park, nor am blind to the problems.
are the problem, don't you get that? WE
started this mess, but you look at it as some grand thing, some noble effort. It isn't noble when you invade someone's nation, tear it to pieces, and then try to rebuild as WE
want it, not as they might like it. I find that arrogent presumtion, and reprehensible.
but if we keep hammering the terrorists and putting forward the elections the Iraqi citizens will see that it is possible
Puhlleez, you REALLY thing these elecitons mean crap? God, give it a rest. This election won't mean squat. It's another force-feeding by the United States to a people who didn't want to have what the US brought to the table in the first place.
All the angry Bush haters here can't take that away from them.
ROTFL. They need to WANT IT
, and I don't think they do. Within 5 years, I'm convinced that Iraq will be as an intrastringent enemy of the US as it was prior to March 19 of '03. This "election" will be seen as a fond memory to conservatives like yourself. And, of course, you'll always find a way to say it's the fault of the liberals, right?

Great! For each "project", we've sacrificed 2 or 3 young Americans-not to do anything to make Americans safer (which this war hasn't done), but so that we can spend BILLIONS rebuilding what we helped destroy. Lovely. I'm glad you're so proud of that.
You know, DL021, you may not have the demeanor of a B757300, but you're no different than he is in your blind obedience to the conservative leaders of this country. Absolutely no different at all.
