Default Iraq.. Fail or Flourish..?

Time will Tell..Yup

I'm thinking everyone wanted to get the soldiers out of Iraq but you wonder if the pull-out of the soldiers was bad/good timing with political expediency playing a tune..

I suspect a sectarian war is an inevitability and the Joe Biden/Osama Bin Laden plan for a 3 state solution seems more likely..

-------------------


Several thousand Iraqis in Sunni towns protested Friday against the country's Shiite-dominated government, as the vice president wanted for allegedly running a hit squad accused Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki of pushing the country toward sectarian war.

Mr. Maliki this week sought Sunni Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi's arrest on charges that he organized the assassination of Shiites, including government figures. On Thursday, at least 72 people were killed in Baghdad by bombings in mainly Shiite neighborhoods.

The events threaten to splinter Iraq's fragile coalition and highlight the risk of the country tumbling into the kind of sectarian violence that a few years ago led the country to the edge of civil war.

Mr. Hashemi, who denies the accusations, said Mr. Maliki wants to get rid of all political rivals and run Iraq like a "one-man-show."

(There's more)

700 billion dollars: the est. cost of the iraq war.
  • got rid of saddam
  • killed tens of thousands of terrorists as they came there to play
  • liberated a oppressed people and helped create democracy
  • used up tremendous terrorist resources
  • purple fingers from free voters ignited what they call the 'arab spring' with six more such dictators dethroned or killed since (Bush doctorine, freedom is contagious)


550 billion dollars: down the solyndra rat hole
  • broke the law giving priority to millionaire and billionaire private investor obama cronies instead of the taxpayer
  • that money gone with nothing at all to show for it and no chance of ever seeing any of it again, while we also pay for the bankrupsy making sure rich obama cronies DO get most of their investment back and also pay for the investigations
  • another 1 trillion spent same way afterward on other such rat holes, with no accountability on those either

I much prefer the first one.

Obama managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
