Yankee Doodle

Excellent point!

Iraq seems like a misuse of resources, given the situation with Al Qaeda and the Pakistan frontier. I've often wished the forces sent into Iraq had been sent to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border area.

As I read this post and think about it, I stand corrected. A more elegant CIA / Special Operations Command approach would be far better than the approach we currently have in Iraq. It would make fewer new enemies in the region, while addressing business that needs to be addressed.

I still think Iraq was a mistake, though. Hussein was a dirtbag, but he was a secular dirtbag, and our enemies are Islamic terrorists motivated by a religious ideology of conquest, coupled with narcotraffickers and other criminal elements who are interested in wealth.

Good post!
