Sweeping aside your follow-the-crowd anti-Americanism - now that Saddam has been toppled, who do you actually want to win in Iraq?
A/ The imperfect US-led coalition fighting for Iraqi democracy, who often MISTAKENLY kill innocent people while trying to subdue the ultra-violent Sunni insurgency.
B/ The assorted Baathists & Islamofascist terrorists who are INTENTIONALLY slaughtering innocent Iraqis & foreigners, who want to restore Baathist/Islamist tyranny to Iraq.
1-i could be wrong, but if remember correctly, the war in iraq was about some WMDs. the reasons for going to this war were completely without merit, now if some good comes out of it, thats grand, but saying that the USA went there to free the iraqis is horse shit.
2-are you saying that sending 1,500 americans to die in iraq and killing tens of thousands of iraqis is not "ultra-violent"?
3-there is plenty of f-up killings going on in china and parts of africa. much of it would make what you call "B" look like a night in paris!! why go to iraq and not to where the US would be needed most? what does iraq have that china and parts of africa does not?
4-its NEVER an either or, the US could go to Iraq "save" the iraq people and NOT kill the innocent, and NOT fuck shit up. (as iraq is pretty fucked right now)
