To the Editor:
What is going on in Iraq? Some of us remember all the hyperbolic rhetoric, based upon the flimsiest of “evidence” back in 2003, that removing Saddam Hussein and “freeing” Iraq would make that country the keystone in an ever-widening gush of democracy across the Middle East. Some of us knew enough about the politics of the Middle East and Iraq to draw back in amazement that anyone could be so stupid.
Now we see that the keystone of Iraq is crumbling to rubble, sectarian violence is increasing, religious animosity is increasing, and the likelihood is good that Iraq will become the center of destabilization in the Middle East.
Why haven’t the criminals who sold this country that pig in a poke back in 2003 been tried and put behind bars?
If you kept up, as I did, with the squandering of lives and treasure that asinine war gave us, you are surely as angry as I am about it.
