Gosh, wasn’t it good that America invaded that nation without justification, overthrew the government that was keeping things stable, and installed an utterly useless puppet government, bolstered by American military “consultants” who offend the people enough that they would bomb each other? A useless, unrespected government is so much better than a working government that could have been reformed through cooperation instead of invasion.

Yes, let’s just ignore the fact that the leader that was killed was in the employ of the CIA and its military was financed by American Tax money. It’s only been some $10 Trillion of American Taxmoney that’s been thrown into that bottomless pit, with no end in sight.

When is America going to learn to fix the many problems it it’s own nation before it starts butting its nose into other countries. Imagine what the economy would be like now if that $10 Trillion had been spent domestically over the past 40 years, rather than thrown at Iraq? And leave us not forget that Saddam Hussein was a despot of America’s own making, too.

Did McCain and his Republican chickenhawks say “I told you we the US should have stayed in Iraq, those dead should have been American troops!”?

In Pakistan such an occurrence is an almost weekly fact. And there was no any intervention at all. Sunni and Shia, the two branches of Islam are entrenched in a conflict as old as 1400 years. So that neither could it be triggered nor stopped by anyone or anything. Of course, there is from time in time a while of relative quiet. But it only conveys the idea:tomorrow too is a good day to fight.
