38. Welcome to the New American Nightmare.
We saw this coming, we knew the end result, but Bush had to have this war. Who will come in and relieve us of our responsibility to fix what we have broken?

Taking Saddam out has opened a Pandora's box for the people of Iraq...we stay and provide the focus for an endless cycle of violence; we leave now and the violence increases as the multiple factions vie for power. This didn't need to happen.

What a mess.
