US will be in Iraq for decades - Iraq is a colony now, for all intents and purposes

After the Presidential deabte last night, a retired general inthe US Army was interviewed, and he gave a coldly realistic assessment of the US military presence in Iraq.

"President Clinton said we'd be out of Bosnia in a year. We're still there. We're going to be in Iraq for DECADES."

The fact that we're building 15 military bases, and the largets emabssy inthe sorld there, also suppor tthat view.

Iraq is a colony now.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Bad for the first two, great for the last two.
