71. Civil war is fine, even welcomed, by this administration.
The British set it up that way...constant strife allowed the British to continue getting what it wanted out of the country. Now the US has done nothing over the last 2 years to keep arms out of the hands of the insurgents, build good will, reconstruct damage, get a clear leader in power...in fact at times it seems we have done the opposite of what you would expect a occupying power to do to quell insurgency and political discord.

The reason is that civil strife keeps us there.. Keeps one group from gaining power to kick us out...keeps the nation disabled, divided, and disfunctional...allows us to do any damn thing over there we want. It also keeps the war on terror alive...which helps the administration here at home keep us all afraid.

This is what we want. Things will not get better in Iraq. Things will get worse everywhere, in fact.

After Zarqawi, there will be someone else. After that it might be another country.
