    [QUOTE=TheDemSocialist;1061588883]No its not stable no where near stable. Its categorized as a failed state. It still suffers sectarian violence and some say the civil war is still going on to this day. When Saddam was in power not a single terrorist attack happened in Iraq today its averaging one a day.[/QUOTE]

    You will have to show me your links........Not sure I agree.

    "Car bombs and roadside blasts have killed at least 56 people and hundreds injured across the Iraqi capital Baghdad and elsewhere, police and hospital sources have said.

    Security forces stepped up searches at checkpoints after the attack on Tuesday, closing off key roads and worsening the capital's morning gridlock, a reporter for the AFP news agency said.


    Co-ordinated attacks targeted markets, restaurants, bus stops and day labourers during the morning rush hour

    Along with 56 killed, over 200 people were wounded in the attacks on the 10th anniversary of the US-led invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein.

    Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf, reporting from Baghdad, also said a suicide bomber has detonated his vest in a restaurant near Mosul.

    At least ten car bombs, including two detonated by suicide bombers, one roadside bomb and two gun attacks struck in and around the Iraqi capital during the morning rush hour on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the US-led invasion... "

    A veritable jewel of democracy.

    I think you have to blame Obama for that........His love relationship for the Arab countries have made them much more bolder no longer afraid of the U.S. The worse is giving 250,000,000 dollars to a radical islamic country.

    true enough...

    you know my stance on this... a single bullet would have been far preferable to a costly invasion/occupation. ( I have zero problem with Congress granting a letters of marque and reprisal)

    it's a very good thing that the tyrant is dead... his sons too.

    No one said this thing would be easy........Some would say that Obama to appease his far left base brought the troops home way to early.
