I'm currently reading "The End of Iraq" a book by Peter W. Galbaith. Its a shocking indictment of the botched occupation of Iraq. Its a well written, researched and well thought out book. It is not, however, going to cheer anyone up. After reading this book, I have to say Bush and Cheney deserve to be impeached. What happened there is simply criminal and all Americans will be paying for it, for the rest of our lives, both economically and in other ways.
We lost Irag a long time ago, probably the day we invaded Baghdad and forgot to guard the water supply and power grid (but not the oil industry). You know it, I know it, but does Bush?
It looks like Iraq will be the most important issue of the 2008 campaign. Sen. Clinton has positioned herself poorly on this issue, and its going to hurt most of the Republican hopefuls.
And all signs point to a deteriorating situation in Iraq.
