Well the war was executed extremely well, it was over pretty damn quick.
As for the 'after' war, well there were a few surprises. All in all , it has went well when you consider the big picture and not the body counts. If
you look at what the goal is, it is looking better and better from the strategic point of view.
A democracy in the Middle East, one with the $$$ and the Oil to help shape the Middle East of the 21st Century.
One thing to keep in mind, the Japanese still remember how the US treated them after WWII and they are staunch allies to this day. The Germans however
remain suspect to some degree, especially with the younger generation.
Iraqi's will remember that American blood was shed for their freedom. It was the only country in the Middle East in which a democracy had a flying
fart chance, and SoDamnInsane had to go....PERIOD.
