Choices and Sacrifices

29 December 2006 |permalink | email article

W. likes to equate victory in Iraq with “difficult choices” and “additional sacrifices” by Americans in 2007. 

His argument, that the U.S. would not be “run of of the Middle East” by extremists and radicals is a false one.

In his deliberate rush to war, which 70% of Americans now oppose, W. and his now-vanished neocons, made historic strategic error.

They failed to distinguish between Al Qaeda, the real threat along with jihadists, and what was always predictable - an unquenchable sectarian war between majority Shiites and once dominant Sunnis under Saddam Hussein’s rule.

Surging more troops into Baghdad, as the American death toll hovers near 3,000, is unconscionable.
