    You could do a lot worse than Turkey exerting influence in Iraq.

    The Iraqis were supposed to welcome US with flowers.
    Do you think, there will be built a memorial within Iraq for the fallen soldiers like some European countries did after WW2? If it's build, it may become some sort of shrine for the Sadrists and other gold-medalists of Pro-Americans within Iraq.

    Now you know it also.

    So, what are we supposed to say in retrospection?
    Thanking you for liberating the people of Iraq, or pity you for having put so much money and lives under the sand in Mesopotamia and totally fucking up your reputation for initiating this war like the way you did?

    Ameicans have always been useless fodder for political fools. Look at Vietnam for further proof or to an even greater degree WWI.

    What reputation? From first contact Muslims and Middle Eastern nations have hated and seen the US as an enemy, and don't honestly claim that you like the US, I know you hate it, and only support the alliance so long as it helps Turkey. :lol:

    You can't lose a 'positive reputation' you never had. :eusa_eh:

    Bush had some very sleazy individuals influencing him. His mommy, his daddy, Cheney, and Rumsfeld go without saying, and despite her talents Condi Rice was no angel. That said I can understand, yet NOT condone juniors actions from a strict foreign policy point of view up until the part where he/they/everyone lied.

    Please, don't spread lies. Bill Clinton was one of the most liked US leaders ever in the perception of Turks.

    Clinton in Turkish Parliament:

    George Texas Ranger Bush was not welcomed in Turkey, the only time he visited was for the NATO 2004 Istanbul meeting. There were no bilateral meetings (state-to-state) involving Bush's 8 year terms in Turkey.

    We don't let every drunkard speak in our parliament.
