    It was a reckoning...I know. But while the reckoning was going on...they did have a rather large resource to keep the battle machines running.

    Obviously...

    Your special insight to government intelligence regarding the invasion of Iraq...does seem to overshadow the opinions of what others are saying.

    I infer that you are agreeing with me, but I'm cautious whenever that happens.

    Yes. We should have taken over, if only temporarily, Iraq. That is the normal thing to do. Sitting on the sidelines watching all hell break loose is the highly abnormal response...............just saying.......................
