We are responsible for everything that the Iraq govt does. However, you have to expect problems with a new govt. So I'm not worried about it, just seems like "growing pains."

Yes. But, once we invaded and toppled an evil dictator and the whole WMD thing, there was no more stability and there never will be, not in Iraq.

change that change has to come from within & not be imposed. the latter won't stick & will only cause problems like this when we eventually leave. this is incredibly sad that so many people have & will cont to die bec of the inherent instability.

I'm sill convinced the Iraq war was a geopolitical screwup. Look at Iraq. Look at the test if the region. The minute Saddam toppled and the republican guard disbanded, look what happened. I hate to say it, but Iraq simply may just need dictators to

Function anywhere close to stably. The thought does send shivers inside me. That doesn't mean I'll ignore it when attempts at non dictatorial rule have brought the current state of Iraq

We did not make Iraq a safer and better place post-Saddam. My friend's brother who was 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines died in vain when he died in Fallujah.
