Sad Interview in Iraq

The Washington Post interviewed a man who helped sledgehammer Saddam’s statue: “We got rid of a tyrant and tyranny. But we were surprised that after one thief had left, another 40 replaced him. Now, we regret that Saddam Hussein is gone, no matter how much we hated him.”

He is not alone in his sentiments. But yet the GOP wants us to believe that the situation is improving even as we send soliders back to Iraq that are so badly injured that they are incapable of supporting the weight of their body armour. Are we continuing to win the hearts and minds of the Iraqi's? I think not.
