Every fact may not be laid out perfectly, but what a great sentiment and character in this man. With these failed wars, it seems the original reasons - firstly just a flat-out bully response to 9/11 from a president with an adolescent's maturity ( "Bring it on" ) but more strategically (remember that Republican plan for the 21st Century Manifesto cooked up by Cheney, Rumsfield, Pearls, and others) to destabilize the area to take control of the oil and gas - have been mostly forgotten. Instead, it's like what are we gonna do now, all these dead soldiers and all this carnage, so we can't just leave. We have to "win" and then it will be o.k. to leave, but all the spin doctors together can't find a "win" here. So the inevitable withdrawal is postponed, and all that's left is more killing and the continued creation of people, children now, who are growing up to hate us.
