War Crimes

I would really like to see the people who do these kinds of things brought to justice. That will never happen until Americans learn they can't have tax cuts and a war at the same time and make a real commitment to either win this thing or get out. The West needs to stop turning a blind eye to the atrocities committed by Iraqi "insurgents". By "winning", I mean generating the best possible outcome: installing a strong central government and military that operates under a real rule of law. The Americans don't need to prop up such a regime with money. It just needs to know that backsliding will bring catastrophic consequences.

The west needs to mind their own fucking business and repair their own problems. It's more of a hindrance than a help.

The West's problems are pretty small compared with the mess in Iraq, the pre-and-post 9-11 Taliban, Lebanon and the duplicitous House of Saud. I simply don't subscribe to the idea that America deserved 9-11.
