...as Iraq sinks into chaos.
But we can all take comfort from the fact that the U.S., under the policies of neo-cons with bogus "weapons of mass destruction" claims, deposed Saddam Hussein to liberate Iraq. Lucky Iraqis, eh?
Isn't it high time the U.S. recognized that the Middle East is a cauldron and has been for centuries? Here's what Pat Buchanan wrote about our intervention in Iraq last year on the 10th anniversary. Was Iraq worth it?
Of course not, but once we got in we had an obligation to those people.
And now what have they got? Civil war between battling factions, mass murders, and complete chaos. Frankly, it reminds me of Vietnam. We went in and the politicians tied the hands of the military and didn't fight to win. Then we abandoned the south and let the Communists take over.
We're pretty good at abandoning our friends. (Check out this New York Times article from 18 months ago. It's truer today than it was then.) Heck! Obama and Clinton abandoned our own American family in Benghazi; why would they hesitate to abandon anyone else? And, as Hillary says, "What difference at this point does it make anyway?" Let the Iraqis pay the price for our insane foreign policy. (Do we have a foreign policy?)
Pray for the Iraqis and the entire Middle East. Imagine what it would be like for your family if you lived in Baghdad. Pray the rosary for peace. Our Lady of Fatima is the answer.
