huggin' the iraqis

Reader comment on item: Hugging Iraq's Leaders

Submitted by robert fusfeld (United States), May 2, 2006 at 19:35

we failed in iraq because we did not launch this war on the moral highground. like our love of all banana republic thugs, we merely overthrew one, to instill another. we can give thanks to our national disgrace beginning with ronald reagan embracing of sadists in central america and his visit to bitburg. instead of our effort to become a moral compass, we have become a shining disgrace. soon, we will embrace the palestinians and it will be time to throw up.

our obstacle is a state department continuing to be guided by the remnants of the nazis and the sons of the cold warriors. and, we call ourselves a nation under G-d. If there be a God, it must be hiding from this creation.
