    Juan Cole is a noted MiddleEastern expert, and his predictions have been pretty close to being 100% right over the last five years (compared to BushCo. who've nearly always been wrong)

    Good read. I do think that the real challenge will be reconsileration between the factions. Al-Qaida may be controlled now but if the trevails of the government continue, there will be factions laying in wait for the opportunity.

    I might suggest you all check out Juan Cole, more than a cursorary glance.

    You and Bush were wrong about Iraq WMD, wrong about collaborative ties between al qaeda and Saddam, wrong about Iran's nuclear program. You're almost always wrong.

    Juan Cole has been one of the most insightful commentators on the middle east. And Unlike you and Bush, he's almost always right.

    Trying to tie me with Bush only makes you wrong. Sorry.

    Were you not the one recently posting that Iran had a nuclear weapons program, and was 18 months away from having a bomb?

    The problem with being wrong all the time kathy, is that is make you just like bush.

    1. Saddam manufactured, possessed and used WMDs.

    2. Bush never made a tie between AQ and Saddam. Only you leftwingnuts have been trying to sell it that way. Guess y'all intellectual giants were teh only ones that would believe such crap anyway.

    You are not only wrong, but lost in the sauce of your political fanaticism.

    If Iran nuked us today, YOU would swear to God Bush did it. You destroy your own credibility. No one needs to help you at all.
