A fine one to jack its jaws about "Kool-Aide". Nothing here but DNC talking points, badly revised history and military ignorance. If you ever had an original thought it circled the bowel sometime around 1992....

Then I invite you to give us 10 reasons to support the war efforts. I did my homework and now you can do yours.

BTW, it doesn't take a military strategist to understand how badly we are doing there, but you are welcome to list your points, Mr. General.

One hint: give me a good reason why we disbanded the Iraqi army? So they can join up with the insurgencies. Where is the logic to that? Your move.

Yeah a democratically elected government in Iraq in December is a real testament to our failure.

So if the Chinese took over our country and told us who and what we could vote for, you'd be good with that, right? That would seem to meet the criteria of your "democratically elected government". Democracy, by definition, comes from within, not from without.

You're gonna try that one again?

USA is to Iraq as China is to USA.

A. You think we are as nasty a place as Saddam's Iraq was in comparison to China,

B. You think that a China and the USA are equally leginitame governments.

We have the conquered and the conqueror. Your stance of moral superiority is both subjective and in my opinion, irrelevant.

A. Irrelevant
B. Yes

That is interesting.

Can you describe the origin of the legitimacy of both governments?

1. What led you to believe that there is/was a dictatorship in the U.S.?

2. What does that have to do with the topic at hand?
