Ungrateful Iraqis - Let them sort their own problems.

Reader comment on item: Limping away from a Shattered Iraq

Submitted by M.D. (United States), Jul 9, 2009 at 18:04

It was Colin Powell's stupid policy: "When we break it, we're responsible to fix it." That was what kept the US forces in Iraq.

It was this same Colin Powell who hindered Gen.Schwartzkopf from finishing off with Saddam's regime during the Desert Storm, by saying that the reason US went to that war was to get Saddam's forces out of Kuwait & liberate another ungrateful nation.

It was this same Colin Powell who endorsed the presidential candidate Obama in 2008, though Powell received most of his promotions during the terms of Republican presidents. So Obama must be relying of Powell's advice.
