I am overwhelmed by the delusion of Bush and the Repubs...
Yes, democracy will take root in Iraq and they will live happily ever after. At least, they will be better off than they were with Saddam. At least, some of them will be better off than they were with Saddam. As soon as we can get a military or police force that can enforce the "democracy", there will be stability. Not because the people are happy, but because they are fearful for their lives - just like under Saddam.

1. So then what difference are we making.
Does this justify the loss of our troops and the disfigurement of the survivors both mentally and physically?

3. I don't think they are deluded. This is just their way of
spreading their propaganda. Greed and hunger for money are the top items on this administration's list. Along with the need for power. The only people who are deluded are the ones who supported this regime at the voting booths. Sometimes I feel the only ones who think we went to Iraq for "democracy" are either deaf, blind, dumb, or Republicans.
