Can I just say ... GOD, we have fucked things up in Iraq! Just the reduction in the position of women is enough to make me want to curl up in a ball on the floor and cry. I could go on and on and on about how much worse it is over there now than it was before the invasion but it all seems so pointless.
Democracy, my ass. I don't live in one and we're not building one. ("We." Harrumph!)
