Collateral damage is nothing new in war, but the American military has gone to extraordinary lengths to assure as few noncombatant casualties as possible. I think you are mistaking Iraqis killed by Iraqis and Islamofascists, and deaths caused by terrorists hiding amongst civilian populations, with the American military...This war, on any objective measure, is by far the most humantarian war ever fought by America.
The civil war that followed the american occupation is causing thousands of deaths. This wasn't their target either, but they were criminally incompetent.
The Iraqis have been given a chance at freedom, and freedom has always had a cost. America's civil war cost over 400,000 lives, and nobody argues if it was worth it or not. There was no criminal incompetence, there is however criminal sabotage and treason by those wishing to undermine the war.
According to US government agencies, the invasion of Irak has been a total failure; terrorism is now much stronger than before.
Really? Remaking a country is not a cup-o-noodles, where you just add water and "bang" you have lunch...It is very complicated...We have toppled a dictator, rebuilt infrastructure, set up a democracy, killed terrorists and are training Iraqis how to live in freedom...a freedom they wouldn't have if the murderous dictator Saddam was still in charge, a freedom they wouldn't have if the neo-socialists in America have their way and we leave.
By any objective and rational measure it has been nothing but astoundingly successful -- of course those opposed to our success (American democrats/media) tell a different story because they want power, which necessitates us losing in Iraq (which they desperately want).
Osama Bin Laden has won, unfortunately.
People like you are Osama's wet dream.
No, people like you are Osama's wet dream. He counted on American and foreign liberal types to cower and run in fear. He expected us to fold like Clinton did in Mogadishu. Osama even justified 9-11 with this fact...People like me are his worst nightmare, and why he is in hiding to this day. He will die soon, if he isn't already dead.
