* This deserves thought in light of recent developments and believe it or not this was my thought 2 1/2 years ago! Watching what is going on today in regard to Iraq I remembered discussing it two and a half years ago so I looked for the story, I found it and was stunned to find that the entire story applied to exactly what is happening today in Iraq, the middle east, and here at home. So much so that I decided to republish the story from January 2006. Think about it, the more things change the more they remain the same
It looks like they will be able to temporarily set aside their differences in order to concentrate on us and our removal from their soil. With Bush insisting on staying the course and refusing to exercise any sense at all he still refuses to learn anything at all from Vietnam. He still insists on overstaying our misperceived welcome. He is purposefully making us the targets. A Sunni politician has recently declared the U.S. as the enemy. With murders increasing of both Sunni's and shiite's now at more than 500 since Bush's so called successful election they are killing each other as we knew they would. After a U.S attack on a crowded Shiite Mosque killing 60 we gave the Sunni's the perfect opportunity to declare unity with the Shiite in declaring that we must get out of Iraq.
* My thought at that point in time was that if the sects in Iraq were smart they would at least make believe they were unifying, coming together, and stabilizing. Then once they got us out of there they could refocus on each other. Knowing Iraq still appears incapable of satisfying basic human needs to its citizens and there are 2.5 million permanent refugees all because of Bush as well as peace Israeli style with walls being used to separate cities and keep the peace it dawned on me to rethink!
