When the Iraqi government bombs its opposition it’s OK. When the Syrian government does the same thing it is punishable by boycott, death, bombing in return, etc. ad infinitum.

America should get out of world politics, because it only understands its own evangelistic, economic self-interest. It is disgraceful, stupid, counterproductive and destructive to all parties concerned, but us most of all.

anonymot..you make a good point. Sadam was bad..but what happened when we took him out. The situation is even worse. How about Libya..total chaos. Syria…without Assad what do you get? A pseudo-revolution/aL Qaeda government? These are religious wars. There are no winners. The whole thing is a “dog with fleas”. Just say no.

Not sure how this will turn out, but probably not too well.

Maliki’s giant mistake, ongoing, is to bash and oppress and punish those who were once the enemy oppressor (party). The only way Iraq will balance is if they include in the perceived opposition, into decisions and governing. Its the only way.

Even if that doesn’t work out, and it all returns to a Strongman like Saddam… at least they would have symbolically given it a try. As it is now, they’re justing stamping out fires all over the place.
