This is the “peace” Obama takes credit for. After 24 years of US military involvement (1990 Desert Storm until now. Or 35 years if you include Bush Sr’s CIA fomenting of the Iran-Iraq war) Iraq has lost untold civilian lives and bears the scars of depleted uranium, enriched uranium, and just about every family torn asunder. Can anyone realistically claim “we meant well?”

The attacks are used to prove that the government can’t protect citizens, its main duty, even in the capital, that should be safe. Rebels don’t win rebellions, governments lose them. Al Qaeda wants to hit Arab oil states to raise oil prices, raise revenues for Arab oil states, raise donations from citizens of Arab oil states to al Qaeda and other groups, damage the mechanized economies and militaries of the US and NATO, and let the US and NATO pay for both sides in the war. It is an effective strategy.

Religions, all religions of whatever nature or form, disgusts me. The world is doomed because of the naive brain accepting the existence of a higher power. since the dawn of man people have figured out how to control other people by pretending they know and understand what a ghost like high power has intended for us all.This religious war in Iraq is just another iteration of the folly of believing.
