    Hindsight as we all is 20/20. The stupidest thing that the USA did was to overthrow Saddam Hussein. In power he was a tyrant to his own people but he kept them quiet. I do not know what your take on Saddam was but at this point it makes no difference. His departure has opened the wound of utter rage and hate of the multiple sects witin Iraq. Now you can reply to me that Israel instigated the fall of Saddam's regime...that is your modus operendi....but in actuality the Bush's as far back as Bush Sr. wanted that..but as above they did not know the outcome would be as todays news. Whether you want to accept it or not each and every Arab/Moslem country in the Middle East is a potential ticking time bomb for sectarian violence. Spew as much hatred as you want on Israel,the bottom line is that even if Israel goes back to pre-1967 borders, Israel will always be a thorn in the side of Islam. Islam is on a continuous mission to bring back the Islamic Caliphate. Israel is in the way.
