You are the one who needs to read a history book. What we are doing now in Iraq is what we have been doing in the Middle East on and off for the past 30 plus years -- supporting one terrorist against another. In the end we still get a terrorist. If we succeed in stabilizing the Maliki government, in five years we are back in Iraq to overthrow that government. That is the history of the Arab world. We have no friends in Iraq. Don't believe me? Then tell me why Maliki protects the Shiite militias killing our troops?
