It is truly sad.  But in the end, they are the ones who are going to have to step up and quit killing each other. By getting rid of Saddam and knocking the insurgents back on their heels, we have given them a fighting chance to actually establish a working, democratic government.  But they will have to be the ones to do it.  If the radicals take over when we leave, it will be as much the Iraqi people's failure as it will be ours.

That's always been the age old problem:  you can give someone freedom, but you can't trust them to do what you would like them to do. You can't trust freedom when it's not in your hands.

This reminds me of Vietnam, when Lyndon Johnson said he wouldn't be sending American boys to "do a job that Asian boys should be doing."  Turned out a bit different....

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
