I mean, man........does anybody think any good at all for the people of Iraq will come from this. Something, anything. Does anybody think at some point they will say enough is enought, build thier government and take shit over and tell us, thank you for coming but now you have to go, this is our business now.....doesnt seem likely...ha...?

The only thing that matters is whether the U.S. will ever benefit from this invasion/occupation or not. Lacking a crystal ball, I cannot say for certain, but it seems very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very doubtful.

Saddly enough I come to the same conclusion, and it doesnt sit right with me. Its hard to believe that nothing good at all will come from this, even 100 years from now. I guess I am in hopeful thinking mode, with a little sprinkle of deniel do to how much lives and money "we all" are loosing do to this administrations decisions.

Not sure what you mean?

Broadly, I was restating that an unstable, dislocated Iraq is useful for Iran's expansionist agenda.

Definitely check it out. It'll make your stomach turn. It is an investment group run and populated by the veritable "who's who" of the Washington power elite, past and present. I can't remember for sure, but I think its pretty much a GOP ship. They made money hand over fist on this one.

I know its sad to think of the things we here as a nation has done especialy during this administrations, but about the Iraqi people, will they ever see peace. Will they ever have a Government. The reason I posted this question which has been I have been thinking about since last week, is because of some cases out of bad comes good. It made me wonder will any good for the Iraqi people come of this considering all the hell they have and are going through.

We entered this situation with no real exit plan or considerable strategy for the people of Iraq and now, they suffer because of this. More over the years and years of damage thats to come from this war is in some cases mind blowing.
