Hard to Believe We Were Really Trying to Accomplish Anything In Particular

From an Iraqi perspective, seems things were so thoroughly bunged up the occupation for so long, they just gave up on the idea America was there to do something positive for them. If it was so important to Bush and company to get us involved, why was it ok to do so poorly for so long? Seems if something is worth sending American soldiers somewhere to be killed or maimed, it should be important enough for the bureaucrats to at least do a passable job. The "intel" was wrong, the occupation failed to establish and maintain order, and every other detail that followed was wrong. If you want to know why the "surge" is viewed as half baked, just look at what has happened to date. What evidence can you find to justify letting Bush fool us all again? Here is a link to the account from the Iraqi insider's perspective"
