Aye, Doug. After the gigantic mess this wonderful "coalition of the willing" so predictably made in Iraq, they are frantically trying to "guide' the political current the US way, and not making much headway at all. Even if they have managed to keep enough of the Sunnis away from the polls with their latest "assault against insurgents" in the north west, and this "constitution" is democratically [???] approved, the resistance to foreign occupation will continue, and will almost certainly be as intense as ever. The "coalition" will, down the way a little, end up being a permanent garrison of US military [barring a change of heart and government in the USA.]. The abominable gang in the pentagon has no intention of EVER leaving Iraq. The Iraqis, with all their desperate efforts, haven't got the power [not one measly WMD---]to oust the might arrayed against them---but the American people do have that power, and the signs are at last pointing in the right direction [ oooooh--is that blasphemy?]Tell ye what Doug---when the days arrive that we see on a regular basis columns of armour---tanks, artillery, even aircraft---manned exclusively by IRAQIS being deployed and used all over Iraq [if such a country is allowed to survive]then I will begin to doubt the rightess[more blasphemy] of my convictions.
And if your source of news is FOX, then in my heart I must go a fair way towards forgiving you for your view of the world----
