Yuck. Yet another mess to clean up for our peace keeping troops.

And another case of whudonnit for our crack intelligence squad.

Ever wish we had just stayed out of the middle east going back, oh, 50 years or so.

I wish that France and Britain had stayed out going back 200 years. We are in the mess now and it is our responsibilty to provide a safe atmosphere for Iraq to determine its future.
