A free Iraq:
Did you catch this paragraph from Bush's speech
The success of a free Iraq is critical to the security of the United States. A free Iraq will deny al Qaeda a safe haven. A free Iraq will counter the destructive ambitions of Iran. A free Iraq will marginalize extremists, unleash the talent of its people, and be an anchor of stability in the region. A free Iraq will set an example for people across the Middle East. A free Iraq will be our partner in the fight against terror -- and that will make us safer here at home.
That was followed by:
To the Iraqi people: You have voted for freedom ...
Talk about empty rhetoric!
The problem with a free Iraq is it will likely be a clerical Shiite gov. aligned with Iran. What a mess.
Thanks for all the posts tonight. Helping me let off steam.
