This is what I didn't want. I think it's great that iraqis are tearing down saddam statues, and that saddam and is cohorts are either dead or not in power. But was this worth all the innocent civilian and soldier casualities? Why couldn't we have reached this goal without bombing Baghdad to kingdom come? Why did we have to humiliate the iraqi people like this? Freedom cannot be given, it must come from within. Look at the USA. Did some country humiliate us into freedom? No, we fought for it ourselves! We rose up against England! Why is this a difficult concept?
Now that we have made our decision and have carried thru with it, I hope that we properly rebuild Iraq. What's worse than bombing a country to humiliation and just leaving them to deal with it? That's not what we did to Japan, this is not what we should do to Iraq. We promised Afghanistan billions of dollars to get them back on the feet. Where's that money now? Better question, where is Osama bin Laden now?
