a few hundred years ago there were many people who didnt want to break from england. people fought and were afraid that it might cost lives... and it did.
people just expect Iraq to be "fixed" in a few years after a dictator is removed. also people tend to forget that America had a civil war 100 years AFTER our declaration of independence. Battles like Gettysburg that had over 50,000 casualties from one fight wouldn't be tolerated today in our hippie liberal media.
and now BECAUSE of the surge... Bagdad is promoting tourism, thinking of building $100 million dollar hotels, and they might not be there now...but they are on their own way
Obama is a ivy leaguer who cant comprehend personal sacrifice, his ego wont let him. He wont admit the surge is working cause it will make him look bad.. he gives credit to diplomacy and the Iraqi Gov, not our troops.
One day Iraq will be a place where the children grow up without fear of mass genocides and admit it or not.. it will be thanks to G.W. Bush and the surge
