    Lots of discussion on this as we complete our withdrawal from Iraq. The Iraq War is now over. So were the goals achieved? Are they now a friend and new Democracy? What do you think?

    The Iraqi government is Muslim first, Shi'ite second, democratic third, and an ally if the previous three don't get in the way. If we attack Iran, I fully expect Iraq to back Iran and not us.

    Arrest warrant for Iraq Vice-President Tariq al-Hashemi



    I see it becoming quite tenuous...but hope our blood and treasure wasn't wasted.

    Maybe but i tend to think we'll intervene in their Civil War at some point. We'll likely use it as cover to go to War with Iran. I could be wrong though. Just my own observation.

    I think it was wasted the instant we stepped foot on Iraq soil. That country is not worth the lives of our men and women in uniform. And it didn't matter how long we stayed there, unless it was indefinite. They would have self imploded no matter when we left. If we stayed for 100 years and then left, they would have imploded right that.

    That entire section of the world isn't worth our time, effort, lives, or money. If the middle east wants to kill themselves so badly, then I say let them have it. Apparently no amount of involvement from us or anyone else is going to stop them, so fuck it.
