New York Times, Theocracy in the Middle East is the reason why there is no Democracy!

Why do you want Obama to reengage us Militarily in Iraq and supposedly compel these people to stop killing each other. This Shiite Sunni “bad-blood” has existed for thousands of years; didn’t you see enough Americans killed and wounded and Tax Payers money at the tune of 1.7 trillion down the drain and for what?

 

Bush and Cheney were wrong for breaking Iraq but neither they nor Obama could fix it. George Herbert Walker Bush at the end of the 1991 Iraq conflict left Saddam Hussein in Power for one sole reason; “Saddam Hussein was a secular Leader and Bush 41 had the better sense to know that if Saddam fell, the Shiites would take over and turn Iraq into another Iran Theocracy and that is exactly where we are today.

 

The New York Times Editorial says; “For lasting success, the United States must compel Iraq’s divisive leadership to pursue government by reconciliation just as vigorously as it pursues battle field victory.” Just how can you compel any Government in the Middle East to do anything? In one of the dumbest things George W. Bush did during his Presidency was to listen to the Vulcans Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld and others, and invade Iraq in the name of Democracy.

 

We have a host of problems right here in our country between Right Wing and Left Wing, Conservatives and Liberals,  religious extremism from the far right and our own Politicians promulgate the drum beat and throw red-meat to the uninformed, ignorant and brainwashed Americans, for their own self gain on remaining in power and if we can’t fix that, just how do we go about rectifying someone else’s problems!

 

Iraq was controlled by the Ottoman Empire for decades and the British at the request of the Iraqis spent years ridding Iraq of the Ottomans only to be kicked out shortly thereafter. We spent eight years at a high cost in lives, injury and broke the Treasury trying to force Democracy down the throats of the Iraqis, using over 1,000,000 United States Soldiers and to what end.

 

The same Iraqi President that refused to sign a “Status of Forces Agreement” that caused us to fully withdraw from Iraq, he is the same one that made the secret request for Obama to use Air Power against the Militants. If Obama places American Troops back into Iraq and even “one” soldier gets killed, the do nothing Republicans would be calling for Obama’s head as they do every day. Obama rescued one POW and we have seen these sanctimonious Politicians on the right and the left, advocating that it was a bad deal to give up five detainees to get our “own” Soldier back.
