Al-Queda declares war on Shiites in Iraq

We have done a maravelous job of creating a terrorist training center in Iraq. Just to show us how successful they are, after a week in which we captured 400 "foreign fighters" and shelled and bombed an Iraqi town, the terrorists showed us how badly damaged they were by setting of car bombs all over Iraq, solely targeted at Shiites. Our future in Iraq is simple to see: quagmired in another civil war, just like we were in Vietnam. I heard on the news that we can't leave Iraq, because it will become "a center of terrorism if we leave." I got news for those morons, it already is a center of terrorism, thanks to us and our stupid war:

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Er, sorry, I meant "engagement".

It isn't GW's fault. The poor guy still thinks Iraq is a type of Camero...

It will be awfully difficult for Al Queda to elicit clandestine support from Iran if they dynamite Shiites coming to power in Iraq. This will be an interesting play.
