The Troubles in Iraq

I get the feeling things have truly gone awry in Iraq this week. The Sunni and Shiite Muslims now seem to hate Americans and all our friends more than they hate each other. In an odd way we seem to be uniting Iraq - but not the way we hoped. Watching children participate in the barbaric mutilation of four murdered Americans seems to epitomize the deep hatred that exists. As many wise people tried to tell us going into Iraq just inflamed the religious lunatics in the Middle East and exacerbated the terrorist problem.

Our administration has gotten us into a horrible mess that will be extremely difficult to solve. And for a country that seems not to have been worth saving. Certainly not worth sacrificing our young people for.
