Well, Glad That All Worked Out for the Best

Well, it took an entire day after US troops pulled out of Iraq for the coalition government we installed there to begin collapsing. That certainly was worth over 100,000 lives and a trillion dollars.

What will be amazing will be to watch as the neocons spin this as Obama's fault for pulling out too early. If only we had stayed twenty years, the Sunnis and the Shiites would have learned to love each other! (And, of course, Obama didn't really want to go, anyway: he was honoring the agreement Bush signed with the Iraqi government.)

  1. Well, I am certainly glad that we can at least agree on this. All of the waste, all of the money, all of the credit and all of the death... What for?

    It pains me to think of the lives affected by this, the families and the friends. You certainly do not forget people that you know being blown to bits. That sticks in your mind forever.
