    I have lost faith in Colin Powell for allowing this to happen. I've always felt that he was a morally upright man but now I'm not so sure. Politics can destroy the best of men I guess.

    I hope that the Pentagon's nose gets bloodied for this one. Rummy and Wolfowitz have gone too far and too and many Iraqis have paid with their lives. The very real threat of a long-term unstable Iraq is going to haunt them both for a long time. I wonder how gw is going to weasel out of this one and who will be his scapegoat?

    They screwed up. Plain and simple.

    They screwed up and thousands of people are going to die because of it.

    This administration needs to be aborted.

    Where are the people who were making a big fuss and were defending the US pre-war planning when people suggested it was flawed at best, or non-existent at worst?

    Where are you now?

    must've slipped their minds while they were handing out the post-war construction contracts to cheney's teat halliburton.
