Mission Accomplished: It's a Farce!

So we went over to Iraq for democrazy you say, maybe to fight the Islamists and make the region less "Islamic" and more receptive to our ideas, you know like look man we give you Paris Hilton and you guys give us oil oh and look at Kuwait all liberated and playing along with us...oops my bad they are turning Islamist on us, what the fk happened? I thought Mission Accomplished meant we get our way in controlling that region and making it safe for Israel.
From Kuwait, the news: Sunni and Shia Islamists won nearly half of the 50 seats in the National Assembly
BBC NEWS | Middle East | Islamists dominate Kuwait polls

Folks, do you think we invaded the wrong country?
Where did we go wrong?

By the way for the typical geography challenged American Kuwait is right next door to Iraq. Oh, and we first started this war with Iraq because of Kuwait just in case you have watched too many Fox News telling you that the whole thing is about WMD, Democracy and our way of life.

Permanent occupation was always the one true objective. Of all the "big lies", that lie of omission stands as one of the biggest.

And, it draws Islam jihadists from ALL OVER THE WORLD who care nothing about the local geopolitics.

They come there for one reason only: It is a free shooting gallery for them which gives them the chance to do what they want more than anything else in their life :

TO KILL AMERICANS.

Yet every country around Iraq is turning Islamist, why is that? Oh my bad, the exception is Syria but hey in due time and with the right pressure on them to bow down to Israel they too will have Islamists running Damascus to sort of like "save face".
We have some great analysts working for our government that's for sure.

True. Notice that these AMERICANS to be killed are occupation forces. They make ligitimate targets.
