Our Friends the Iraqis...

One of these days we will finish helping the Iraqis to become a free and independent state. Then we'll come home and Iraq will continue. Their government will run like a well oiled machine, with maybe a very small glitch here and there but nothing they can't handle.

We'll leave Iraq and turn the running of the new Nation to it's leaders and they will do a wonderful job for their citizens.

Right? ............ Right?"

That would be nice.

In 1947, after ruling over India and Pakistan and Lord only knows how many other needy nations, Great Britain (The Sun Never Sets - The British Empire...When the British Empire was at its height in the early 1900s, it included over 20 percent of the world's land area and more than 400 million people - the single largest empire in the history of the world since time began.) decided to turn over completely control of India to the Indians and Pakistan became free and independent. 'Boy, wasn't that great! Now we'll be independent and have a great time!

'oops'...Immediately the Muslims and Hindus started killing each other in a quest to control the nations that were now free.

During the killing of each other for years and thousands of Muslims and Hindus, the Muslims headed toward Pakistan and the Hindus headed toward India.

That is what is starting in Iraq right now between the Sunnis and the Shiites. It'll keep going on until one sect dominates the other, irregardless of what we do now and in the future. I guess, like the number of sneezes we have until we die, there must be a certain number of our kids who must be killed before we can presume a victory in Iraq. Right?... But, how many?
