3. about that sunni block walking out of the government the other day...
i don't necessarily think these are bad developments.

but over the past week baghdad has been out of water -- 60 decomposing bodies dumped in baquba -- missing arms, thousands of them -- the government in near collapse -- turkey warning iraq again re: kurdish ''terrorists'' -- and so on --

we've never found the weapons of mass destruction -- we've created enemies we've never had{um -- where do they go IF we stabilize iraq, thin air?} we've never settled the question of the legality of this expensive debacle, we haven't assessed the damage the financial cost of this war to our country, and so on.

NO GOOD has come from this war -- in spite of maccain, romney, and this rest of the ignorant barbaric cheerleaders.
