2. From what I understand, the US isn't supposed to take sides
in this civil war (because yes, that's what it's looking like to me). But if that's the case, please remind me exactly why the US is over there if they're not supposed to be intruding.
And then I heard a talking head this weekend parroting Powell: We broke it, we own it. :eyes:
