"This idea of a functioning democracy here is crazy. We thought that there would be a reprieve after sovereignty, but all hell is breaking loose." - Newsweek

We are losing the war, just like how we lost vietnam. Maybe it's time we stopped forcing democracy on countries. These experiments in "spreading freedom" are not working. I am becoming more and more embarrassed to be an American. I think we all should be embarrassed.

Despite what interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi says, I doubt the elections will happen in January. Violence will just be getting worse and worse and no one is going to go vote. I hope I'm wrong. I hope I'm just reading the wrong media, but it doesn't seem to matter where I read it, it's still not very hopeful.
