here is an article featuring the latest "thank you" from our "friends" in Iraq. You know...the people we liberated from that tyrant Saddam Hussein at a cost of "about $1.9 trillion...or $6,300 per U.S. citizen". Oh...and don't forget the cost of almost 5000 American lives. Almost twice as many people as died on 9/11 in New York.
Now our Iraqi friends are one of the sole suppliers and supporters of the Syrian butcher President Bashar al-Assad. Are you still feeling good about our USA government's invasion of Iraq to get rid of "terrorists"? Thanks Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Obama...
As every week and month unfolds more of the demise of American international foreign policy and interventions...my despise and abhorrent reaction grows deeper and more sure against my home country's government. They continue to spend our tax dollars and invest many future generations of our children's economic futures for the sake of these sick wars and interventions. I truly believe 50-60 years from now history will find these governmental leaders and decisions to be the most ill advised and ludicrous examples of leadership in the history of the USA.
An even sadder revelation is realizing that Iraq is working WITH Iran to support the oppressive government of Syria. What a sad outcome based on our national arrogance and irrational egos that continue to determine the fate of our country and economy in the face of these real facts and results. This is the same game these Arab states have been playing against various USA administrations for decades now. When is enough enough? When will someone in our country stand up against our government's wasted efforts and lack of understanding in the Middle East?
You are welcome Iraq. Enjoy your new found "freedom". Excuse me while I go to the restroom to vomit in disgust.
