Iraq: A shinning beacon of light in the Middle East

That was a big part of the plan, remember ?





Unforgetable joy



  • Free Iraqis from a tyrant who killed 300,00+ of his own people, giving them a better life


  • Make Iraq flourish as a Western style democracy


  • Set up an example in the region, a lesson the Middle East would never forget





Well, after Abu Ghraib, after a cameraman and civilians were shot dead during a live TV show, after a marine executed an unarmed wounded man in front of camera and after US troops let dogs eat bodies in the streets of Fallujah, I think we can pretty much guarantee #3:


"Set up an example in the region, a lesson the Middle East would never forget"


That lesson is unforgettable alright. It's just not the lesson we hoped to teach...



Unforgettable sorrow
