Bush's Iraq will be a decade long threat to the world
It seems increasingly clear to me, especially after reading this article, that the main accomplishment we will remember of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld is the establishment of an anarchic home base for worldwide terror that will last for probably a decade or more.
We've given them a most comfortable home. There's no stable government with policing power, and was certainly never a chance for a stable DEMOCRATIC government. So now we are left with having given them a haven, whether we stay there or not - but probably more so if not - to export destruction.
And so I am increasingly in awe of the people who are willing to accept Bush's mistake and agree to put themselves in danger over there so we aren't in more danger over here. It's amazing when you think about it. We've now had more killed in Iraq than on 9/11, and many of them volunteered to be at risk. Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld should live the rest of their lives praying for the forgiveness of these volunteers' families.
