Patreaus himself has set the scene by saying that Iraq is going to be very similar in the future to Northern Ireland with continued strife for many years to come
...our shining light of a Jeffersonian democrasy
...a "comma" in future history
...a place free of terrorism where there was none before

...turned into a blanket of car bombs and civil unrest

we might have to give it some more time before we can know for sure. there are a lot of good things happening in iraq, it is not all bad.

The government ain't payin' up nothin'. That was the gist of my sarcasm, and when they do, it usually is not the kind of payment you were looking for. Remember, the thing about the mousetraps? They've got those government issue mousetraps. LoL Razz

Good always comes mixed with bad. That fact is largely irrelevent.

Your female ancestor from whose womb you came from is largely irrelevant!!

Please be more specific. I am not sure that we reside on the same planet as each other, my friend....

I would also like to add my scepticism regarding this statement and would ask for further clarification using examples.

i am not saying that i think the war is going well but there it can not be 100% bad. saddam is out of power which in the future will be a good thing. the kurds seem to be doing well and the majority shiites are in power as the majority should be and after the sectarian strife plays out still will be because the outnumber the sunnis so much.

we are building schools and all that good stuff and they are actually going to make it so that the oil revenues, the ones the oil companies actually give back, are going to be divied up throughout the country.

the surge could work. if they didn't back out on building the wall, the shiites would be better off just as the israelis are with their wall.
