Another Brilliant Idea
Labels: Idiotic Democrat Ideas
I've heard a lot of talk about a "war on terror" but I never did hear a declaration of war.
Also, we are "in the middle". You mean figuratively. You don't actually see this thing wrapping up in the next 4 or 5 years, do you?
Semi figuratively, war against Jihadists has just begun, the central front in Iraq may well be halfway done (Viet Nam length). Thanks for commmenting.
If Iraq is the central front of the war against jihadists, it is a central front of our own creation.
No matter how many terrorists to whom Saddam gave safe haven or country villas, his overthrow has made Iraq the new popular destination for jihadists.
Sure. Afghanistan. Better success in Afghanistan would be making that country a city on the hill.
Afghanistan is no longer a haven for terrorists but neither is it an Eden.
As I have stated on this blog on numerous occasions, I believe the invasion of Iraq was a mistake b/c although the deposition of its evil dictator was bound to be relastively easy in a military sense, the challenge of building that country into a successful democratic nation for foreseeably impossible given its ethnic makeup; its sectarian issues; and the tribal nature of large portions of its populace.
If I had to make a choice, I would prefer to see Osama bin Ladsen's head on a pike to Saddam Hussein's head in a noose.
