Blogger has been unavailable most of the day, which was quite frustrating. I came across the photo below, which says it all, I think, about Iraq. Two years ago, if you look back at this Weblog, I warned that the misguided adventure to replace Saddam would be a total disaster on a parallel with Vietnam. On the bloodiest day yet for US forces, I wasn't far wrong. Have a look!
That few people in power understood the difference between Sunni and Shi'a Islam and the religious divide in Iraq, amazes me. At best with its entrenched tribalism and secular and religious strife, Iraq looks as if it will resemble the Lebanon on a bad day. Possibly the only thing, with Iran as a neighbour, that prevented Iraq from collapsing into a religious civil war in the first place was the presence of a vicious tyrant like Saddam. I wonder if they'll offer him his old job back after the trial? The whole story of this war makes me so angry. Michael Moore's Farenheit 911 is on TV tonight and I'll make a point of watching it!
Another pointless war but the results look much the same
