America's war with Iraq was more than military failure. First it did not take 25 minutes to finish. The American troops where not greeted by the Iraq people with flowesr and candles and kisses. Even the Shilte people fought the american military. Our government have no plan on how to occupy Iraq and not enough manpower to safeguard the Iraq military hardware like 5000 tons of C-4 explore stolen by the freedom fighters of Iraq from the Iraq military bases left unguarded by our military.
