Both sides are incompetent, but there's only one we expect anything good to come out of.

I think the problem is that people look at it in terms of sides, rather than people. It's not a fucking football game. The more we treat it like one, the more we'll find that it is one.

Of course.  And that's the nature of a two-party system.

I would argue (and a certain President Washington would agree) that it's the nature of a party system in general, but I still believe that more parties would be better.

The difference only matters if his party starts disagreeing with him.

Standard bullets not powerful enough to fight Iraqis.

Soldiers in Iraq are now claiming that they have to first collect at least two M powerups before they can damage the stage bosses.

Armor-piercing rounds don't work, because they're not wearing armor!  We need cloth-piercing rounds!

Fine, fine. Bush lied and that's where we are now.

The problem with Iraq now is that, on an international level, we're obligated to restore Iraq to at minimum a more stable state than it was in under Saddam.

Many worldwide would agree that Iraq is not as stable now as it was under Saddam.

Saddam kept Iraq stable by rolling tanks down city blocks and demolishing apartment buildings every time someone found 30 decapitated bodies in an alleyway somewhere. Look at Baghdad; it's basically split in half between two ethnic groups that hate each other. It's not like this is a new development and a bunch of Sunnis and Shiites decided to shack up in new digs in the middle of a warzone. The truth is, after a few years of getting used to it, the two sides have figured out that America is one thing that Saddam was not; accountable to the international community. The fact that we're not barbarians is the very reason that we'll never be able to stabilize the region. Iraq either needs brutal force, religious guidance, or one of the factions to be utterly obliterated. As long as we're in the region, I think the most likely thing to occur is option #3. I don't exactly expect the islamic ghandi to come into power anytime soon, so option #2 is, realistically speaking, completely out. Option #1 is unacceptable. We're America. We're getting enough heat for what we're doing in the region without dragging religious leaders into the streets and publically executing them.

WaPo: Key Iraqi Leaders Deliver Setbacks to U.S.

Quote
The Bush administration's Iraq policy suffered two major setbacks Friday when Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki publicly rejected key U.S. terms for an ongoing military presence and anti-American Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr called for a new militia offensive against U.S. forces.

Yeah, it turns out getting us the hell out of Iraq is an election issue there, too.

So, I know this has been asked about a billion times over the past four years, but if nobody in Iraq wants us there, why are we there?

Obviously so we can secure a supply of cheap oil so that gas prices don't suddenly jump up 80% in a year.

Lawl!  That worked out.

My biggest fear is that, this time next year, we'll be yearning for the gas to go back down to four bucks a gallon.  (I understand that California already is.)

Gas here is a billion dollars a gallon.

If we could just make cars that ran on blood, we'd be set.
