Wrong Turn at Baghdad

So we all know that Bush claims Iraq has turned yet another corner. How many turns does that make now? Question: (In the voice of Dwight from the show, "The Office.") If we keep turning corners then doesn't that mean we are just going in circles??

I think so.

Ha! I love when synchronicity occurs. :)


Yeah, in a limo that has more armour then the Hummers that our troops have to drive around.

Whenever I hear about another "turning point", I imagine an endless series of Burma Shave like road signs saying...

"Next turning point in Iraq, 1 mile."

"Next turning point in Iraq, 500 ft."

"You just missed a turning point in Iraq."

What doesn't change is the toll of death and destruction. It just keeps on climbing without there being a means to change it.

But I remain on the side of the Iraqi people, hopeful that their frail democracy and proper institutions can get a foothold.

I do think that Bush and Blair were significantly right in their join press conference, saying that the Iraqis want a just government and for the terrorism to end.

Perhaps some snail-slow movement is being made in the direction of giving the Iraqis something better that the terrible country they have had for so very long.

But I do agree with the sentiment in this post and thread that there has been unconscionable waste in lives, wholeness and treasure. And I am still waiting for a tunnel for there to be a light at the end of.

Soo true.


I think that there is no good answer for Iraq at this point.

However, I do agree with you that we can not really leave. Especially with Iran building up and having such influence on the majority Shia in Iraq.

It's a no win situation no matter how you look at it.

As for the tunnel, I also agree with you. Everytime I get a glimpse of a tunnel we seem to fall back down into a deeper and deeper hole.
