    It will descend into religious intolerance that leads to violence and death. Broken up by each side agreeing to kill some Kurds.

    same as before, but with elections instead of a dictator

    I was being optimistic.

    I didn't say it would turn into Yemen.

    3 states.

    The US forces being there didn't change this eventual situation.

    Looking at their new constitution Republicans helped put together, they will look more like Iran. A kind of quasi democracy. Only women don't really participate. The Republicans made them add a provision where a certain part of their legislative seats go to women, but women in Iraq now wear Burkas and are controlled by their husbands. You can't really campaign in a bag. Women can't even go outside without a male relative to watch them. It's like the Republican abortion police on steroids.

    That means that women are now enslaved.

    Many of the most educated that WERE in Iraq are the Christians. But Bush refused to help them because he didn't want to appear to be playing "favorites". Now that population has gone from maybe 1.3 million to probably less than 300,000. And many of those live in armed camps, their churches burned. Their land taken. They didn't come here. Bush wouldn't accept them. If a million Christians began showing up, Republicans would freak. All those immigrants plus, it would underline failed Republican policy. Besides, they were the wrong color.

    So let's recap:
    Iraqi Shiites, friends with Iran hate our guts.
    Iraqi Sunni, who feel we betrayed them hate our guts.
    Iraqi women, now enslaved hate our guts.
    Iraqi Christians, mostly spread out all over the Middle East, hate our guts.
    Iraqi gays, the ones still alive, hate our guts.
    Kurds, I'm not so sure about. But since they are a sect of Sunni, I suspect they hate our guts on general principal.

    And this is what Republicans call their "Middle East Success". Well, Merry Christmas on that. Looks more like just another one of their polices that have gone haywire. Too bad things don't work out the way they "imagine" then to be.

    Let's recap:

    You have no basis for your religious affiliation based claims. Sure many of the most educated Iraqis are Christians, but many are Muslim too. And many are Jewish, and even Druze.

    President Obama signed off on this. Blame it on "Republicans" all you want, but a Democrat made it the law the the land there.

    3 years under big 0 and nothing was made even the slightest bit different.

    so if they hate us after 3 years, it's Obamas fault, using your incredibly flawed and lacking facts, argument.
