    it's going to cost the US a couple hundred billion to learn what i could have told them for a buck: in order to keep a country like iraq together, you _need_ to be as brutal as saddam.

    the only way i see around it is to break iraq into smaller countries.

    oh -- isn't nice how this will be paid from the CIA budget. aren't they supposed to be hard at work on the real terrorist threats?

    oh yeah:
    note the irony in use of the word 'terrify'

    Nifty. I wonder if this also means that a decent chunk of the money spent in Iraq will qualify as 'secret' and be beyond review?

    Is America really being that different then Saddam was? This is quite disturbing.

    Ah that was a sarcastic comment, you kinda had to be here to get it.
