toadfrog BS: As predicted: Quagmire Iraq (163* d) RE: BS: As predicted: Quagmire Iraq 10 Jul 03

The worst of it is, even if we get rid of Bush, we are not rid of quagmire. Please consider:

British and American troops are being shot at. The whole country is overrun with looters and bandits. In Baghdad, honest folks can't leave their homes. We disbanded the Iraqui Army, and gave those soldiers no food and nothing to do. Now there are more than 100,000 trained fighters running around loose, armed to the teeth, hungry as hell and mad as hell. Not good. But, we are told, all those people who are shooting at our soldiers are holdout Sadaamists. They will all go away when we catch Sadaam, we are told. Does anyone believe that? Rumsfeld and his guy in Iraq seemed to have operated on the good old Republican theory - if someone is hungry, it is because he/she lacks moral fiber, let 'm eat hay. But it isn't Rumsfeld who will pay, it is the poor grunt on the ground - and a lot of innocent Iraqis.

I anticipate being told that I Hate America and won't support our servicepeople. But I really don't want those guys to get shot. And they must be getting extremely tired of Iraq by now.
