    Not only don't you speak for the country, most of the country disagrees with you about the Iraq war.

    shrug ...

    I'm still sorry that you feel so ashamed of your nation that you believe yourselves to be the worst people ever.

    Ignore them, and you never will.
    Exactly! The Iraq war resulted in our failure to learn from the Vietnam war.

    Spare us the victim routine. Shouldn't you be investigating 9/11?


    Right now I'm busy checking out the links between Colonel Steele, General Petraeus and Iraq torture centers. It looks like the Guardian has found the smoking guns.

    Read about it and watch video here: BBC-Guardian Exposť Uses WikiLeaks to Link Iraq Torture Centers to U.S. Col. Steele & Gen. Petraeus | Democracy Now!

    Or maybe you would rather not be exposed to the truth.

    Your choice.

    No, it's to know that invading Iraq didn't make the world a better, or safer place.

    It did help Iran.

    It sure did.

    Iraq was and is a great recruiting tool for Al-Qaeda.

    A lot of Sunni Moslems are looking for some payback for their family and tribal members who were tortured and killed by Shia police commandos trained and overseen by the USA.

    They will never forgive or forget. They are looking for some payback. They see this as a blood debt that must be paid.

    this is one of the really important points that seem to escape many conservative americans ... Arab culture, like many other cultures, including many sub cultures in the US, is a culture of honour.

    In such a culture, in order to redeem one's honour, or in a collectivist traditional culture, to redeem one's family's honour, or the community's/group's honour, you can't just turn the other cheek.
