Cake & eat it too.

Had we been physically in charge at that point we would have done things differently.
U.S. military spokesman Major General William Caldwell told a news conference in Baghdad.

So, let me get this straight. We go to Iraq to force help them set up a democracy, we get all excited b/c they have had 3 elections and now that elected gov't has done something, something lots of people wanted done, and we say things like this. That is just balls! We go in and fuck up the place, and yes, Saddam needed to be removed from power, and now we are bitching b/c of the way they do things, right or wrong, who are we to judge them. I said it when we liberated invaded that you can't force democracy, it HAS to come from the ground up. Besides, Iraq has a long history and there has always been jurisprudence within that history. That foundation is there and won't go away.

If we had only elected someone else President in 2000! Oh wait, I think we did.
