Iraq is Already Lost - I Predicted it Two Years Ago
Iraq is already a lost cause. And two years ago I predicted exactly what is happening in Iraq today. See: How to Fix Iraq. I posted that back in September of 2004.
Here are some of the predictions in that article that have now proved true:
- For long term stability, Iraq must be split into three separate countries: Kurdish, Shiite, and Sunni, otherwise, it's a certainty that at least one minority group will be brutally oppressed by muslim fanatics.
- There must be complete separation of church and state...
- We must set a deadline for when we will leave Iraq because any project takes 10 times longer than necessary in the absence of a deadline.
But since no one in our American goverment has the brains or the guts for strong medicine like this, Iraq is a lost cause.
Afghanistan is not yet a lost cause, though it is rapidly devolving into an Iraq-like disaster. We should get out of Iraq and move all our troops and equipment to Afghanistan for at least a chance at salvaging something good out of this republican debacle.
