It seems to me that the main problem is the Iraqi government and the ethnic problems in Iraq more generally. The only group that seems to really have its stuff together are the Kurds.
    I love it how people use the word technically and think they're being smart, while in fact they are incorrect.

So pissing and moaning about withdrawing is being blind to the real source of the problem... which was being stupid enough to go in there in the first place.

    Sorry, but Bush is the guy that just had to kick the hornet's nest. He broke it; he owns it.

    Well. Before you start pointing fingers at parties about wars, learn the history first. In 200+ years, there is only one or two Democrats that did not enter us into wars and their actions later lead to wars, some of which we are still fighting. Like Jimmy Carter who chickened out and let Iran become so dominant in the ME. You want to blame Republicans when traditionally, they have not been the war party. Of the ones in recent history that did preside over the start of a war, it was the result of actions not taken by Democrats that proceeded them, such as Jimmy "the Coward" Carter and Bill "Slick Willy" Clinton.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    How am I not being technical about the subject matter?
