Iraq Is Slowly But Surely Kicking Americans OutJuly 18, 2009 at 9:26 am | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
Good for them, and why the hell are American commanders so bothered by this? Why do they really want to keep staying in a country that clearly doesn’t want them around anymore? Can’t you guys read the writing on the wall?
It’s sad that it has come to this, that this is the way America will be leaving Iraq, through Iraq’s curt, missive dismissals, slowly choking our abilities to move around their country. But that is the price America pays for having killed so many Iraqis. It shouldn’t be such a surprise that Iraq really doesn’t like us right now. And there is absolutely nothing we can do about it right now except leave Iraq. We do not have any moral standing in that country. Not after the hundreds of thousands of civilians dead, the utterly reprehensible actions at Abu Ghraib.
Our actions in Iraq will haunt us for generations to come.
