Horrendous Civil War in Iraq

Today’s deadliest attack on civilians since the war began shows just how horrible and horrendous things are in Iraq. Over 160 people died according to reports. While a curfew has been put in place, that will in no way stop the reprisal violence, otherwise known as a civil war to all but the delusional Republican partisans. This is absolutely horrendous. This kind of level of violence did not occur before we went into Iraq, and is well beyond a price Iraqis should pay for the removal of Hussein, as bad as he was. How can anyone back our presence in Iraq anymore? How can anyone say this was a worthwhile mission? We have plenty of evidence from Pentagon war games going back as far as 1999 that removing Hussein from power would lead to sectarian violence. No one has any excuse for not listening to those reports and doing something to ensure that did not happen.

Do Americans realize just how terrible of a black eye this is on our stature in the world, and just what the consequences of this black eye are? I don’t think enough Americans do.

  1. It appears we have unleashed the fury of hell on Iraq. A similar horrible situation is happening on our watch in Gaza. It’s not a very happy thanksgiving day.
