I've heard the war in Iraq is settling down because a lot of insurgents are dead; and with Iraq leaders in power interrogations are brutal -- which increases intelligence (they don't just arrest people, they torture people and kill their entire families if they don't talk). It seems as though they will probably move the battle to Pakistan, where a lot of Muslims are sympathetic to their cause, and they might gain access to nuclear weapons. Of course, we can't let them do that. What a mess! It's ironic that the exposure of the poor treatment of Arab prisoners by Americans will lead to even worse treatment. A lot of guys are also leaving the National Guard only to return to Iraq as civilian bodyguards at five times the pay doing the same job.
All the evil things they were misguiding us about Iraq, are prevelant in Pakistan. Mushharf is playing double agent. Getting Billions from Uncle Sam to find Osama and yet protecting Osama in NW frontier. He is milking the US cow. But our foreign policy is nothing but hypocracy. We claim to stand for Democracy and yet we support dictators for our selfish and opportunistic goals. We don't want to diplomatic relation with our neighbor Cuba because of Communism, but kissing China's Ass on the other hand. Do we have any principles ?. Please folks, excecise your right to vote. Internationayy, US prestige is all time low.
