This is exactly what most of us who opposed this war were afraid of, and nobody in power gave a damn WHAT the consequences might be. Sadly, Bush and his allies will continue to ignore the long-term issues created by this war until another 9/11 occurs (and there WILL be a next time, it's only a matter of when and where). And they'll probably even have the nerve to be surprised when the world doesn't come rushing to our aid.......
Excellent post!! And if we were so worrried about a country that has WMD, why haven't we go after N. Korea?? This country was supposed to have pulled out of S. Korea wayyy back in the every 80's...but we are still there! N. Koreans soldiers came over the DMZ and killed two of our officers, while they were on a work detail. They were up there cutting down trees on the DMZ with Korea naitonals, and were beheaded! And we did nothing
but go up there and cut down a few trees!
. They shot down our helicopter, and captured men from the 5th Signal, 2nd Inf Division, and then dictated
to us, when and how we would get them back!
Why didn't we attack them then??
