"I think George W. Bush is the worst American President in my lifetime, I think this war was wrong, I fear that it has irreparably damaged our image with moderate Arab countries, and I fear Iraq will be a quagmire for years to come and come to haunt us. But I would be very happy to be wrong."

How noble of you to cheer the Iraqis who voted....yet to be against the war. You can't have it both ways. Those same Iraqis whom you cheer would have been nothing but miserable subjects had Bush not done the great risk of Iraq. The risk to him personally. The risk to his reelection. The risk to our national prestige. And not to mention the risk that it may still fail. You need to make a decision. You're either on board or you're harping and finger pointing from the sidelines. If Gore wins four years ago none of this happens. Saddam still rules. The hope of democracy spreading across the ME is a pipe dream. And we're launching cruise missiles at pup tents. Bravo for your cheering.
