The first step to any resolution is to admit that a mistake was made..

Interesting article. Thanks for the forward. My heart goes out to the individual coalition and Iraqi soliders and police who are serving on the ground...

Even before Afghanistan could rise back to normalcy, after the US imposed war on terrorism, they marched their armies into Iraq.

I read the letter of Irani President to Mr. Bush (ur prev post) and his points sans those with religious undertones, made sense.

US (& allied) forces now cant leave the beleaguered Iraq as they need to restore the governance.

although WMDs werent discovered, they can salvage pride in proclaiming they tipped Saddam out and restored Humanity. As the blog says, restoring life is gonna be a herculine task, with half the population averse to the occupation forces. Can someone break into ur house at midnight and convince u he is ur friend ?
Can Bush n Blair now convince the forces to continue in Iraq?

It's going to be tough, and it's going to take years if not decades.
I would like to see which organizations in US take the initiative of setting up reforms in Iraq when it is half burning.

Are the American people ready for the tought decisions that go in to correcting the wrongs done surig the war on Iraq?
I doubt it, I think people just want out. An easy way is preferred. With the current bunch in the administration, don't expect any course corrections.

The link was very informative. I feel so down today. War is so hard on everyone.

Thats a good article. The administration has to think Longterm. I liked the idea of clearing the misconception about US policies from the young minds.
