This is so disappointing.
The Sunnis and Kurds don't get along. The Sunnis want to separate. Not
because they are terrorists but because they want to have their own country.
This isn't our business any more than trying to prevent Vietnam from
reuniting their country was our business. Obama your going back into Iraq is
Iraq is a post-colonial created country that should never have existed. And
trying to police this mess decades in the making is the height of folly. Our only offer should be to help them divide the country under the three
ethnic groups in the most peaceful manner possible. If that is not accepted then
we really have little choice but to let them fight it out.Oh, and
thanks Bush for picking up the biggest stick in the world and whacking this
hornet’s nest (which you and your naïve fellow neocons thought was a
bed of roses) for all it’s worth. Worst president in history…
Do Obama and Kerry really believe that Kerry's demanding that Malaki and
the other factions in Iraq bury their differences and "all get along"
will actually come about?The middle eastern culture of fighting
between individuals, families, clans, tribes, religious sects, and ethnicity
(Arabs vs. Persians) and against infidels has been the norm for hundreds, if not
thousands of years. That is not going to change overnight, or even in a few
years or decades.But, we refuse to even acknowledge that Islamic
radicals are our enemy (their declaration started it, not ours). And, we refuse
to accept that unilaterally withdrawing from teh war on terror does not end
it.Never has our country been led by such an incompetent group of
elected or appointed people. I hope we can survive until January 20, 2017.
DN Subscriber – “Never has our country been led by such an
incompetent group of elected or appointed people.”Yes, I liken
the last five years as similar to watching guys in hazmat suits cleaning up a
toxic waste dump… it ain’t pretty and if you only showed up on the
scene (or in the case of Reps, turned on your critical thinking skills) after
these guys showed you might think they caused it.Of course those
with longer attention spans no better…
Kerry hands dire warning to Iraquis over future. I'll bet
they're shaking in their boots over that. Just as President Assad of Syria
