The Iraqis can't fix the mess we made so they are ungrateful

Can anyone in the "main stream media" remember any facts about Iraq for more than one news cycle? I think not. Before the US attacked Iraq was it ungovernable? Was there any Al Qaeda in Iraq? Were there endless car bombings? Were there IED attacks on Saddam's army everyday? The answer to all of the questions above is, no. Did Saddam let in the inspectors before the 2003 attack? Yes he did. Were the inspectors granted access to any and all locations? Yes they were. Was documentation turned over to the inspectors? Yes it was. Did the inspectors find any WMD? The answer to the last question is no. Who kicked out he inspectors after they asked for more time because they were not finding any weapons or traces of weapons in the most highly suspect areas? The answer is, George W Bush, the guy who wanted a war with Iraq. Has any reporter ever asked George W Bush why he insists that we invaded Iraq because Saddam would not let in the WMD inspectors? No, not one of you sniveling cowards ever dared to challenge the president on this obvious lie.

Who broke Iraq by bombing it to dust? Who leveled Faluja? Who killed over 1,000,000 Iraqis during the four-year occupation? The answer is the invading armies. We broke Iraq beyond all recognition. We unleashed the Tribal hatreds between Sunny, Kurd and Shia. Who set up the "democratic" election? The answer is the invading armies. What side wins most elections? The one with the most votes wins. Who would that be in Iraq? The answer is the Shia. What did we think the Kurds and the Sunni were going to think about a Shia majority running the country? They were not, are not going to cooperate.

Let's review: We invaded, bombed, killed civilians and kicked out the ruling structure that maintained order. We set up a series of governments who, like us, are incapable of maintaining security, much less law and order. We cannot control the country and we have all the guns and money at our disposal to do the job. If we cannot control Iraq then why do we think the Iraqis Shia should be able to control Iraq?
The Bush administration has lit a fire in the Mid East that is burning out of control and will continue unless the administration are removed from power. Normally, the fire alarm is sounded by the fourth estate, but since the news organizations are nothing more than a flock of corporate sheep we cannot expect them to sound the alarm much less ask any pertinent questions. We have to pick up the phone, and call or send an email or letter to our Senators and Congressmen and tell them that Bush is dangerous and they need to act accordingly. Stop Bush / Cheny before they destroy our country any more than they have.
