Americans are dying even after the "Mission Accomplished" banner was so proudly recognised by the current CIC while doing the chickenhawk strut across the deck of that aircraft carrier 20 miles off the coast of San Diego, California. The Shiites that represent the majority of the Iragi population are just not digging the American form of Democracy that is being thrust upon them. Even the Kurds and revolutionary Baathists are looking fish-eyed at the proposals. The UN is still trying to get over the "irrelevant" remark made by our CIC while addressing them and the Iraqi's themselves, while understanding that SH is no longer a fear to be dealt with, seem now to fear us, the US, and wish that we would just go away. Hmmmmmmm. A political dilemma that we seem ill-prepared to deal with. Even our own troops are becoming more disgruntled given their contributions to the Stars and Stripes and to whomever journalist that will pay them any mind whatsoever. I dunno. There must be a more underlying problem than "freedom" or the absense of such absorbing this war. Don't you think?
