Thank god we've created a democratic Iraq.
The progress is astonishing and only getting better
** IF you’re in the game of making money from contracts and dealings with every bullet/bomb fired. ***

Iraq is now widely considered # 1 – when it comes to being the ideal jihadist training ground on the planet.

So much for eliminating terrorists, how exactly do you bomb an entire country for years and years and years with the understanding you won’t turn people to hate you?

Iraq is # 2: It now ranks as the world's second most unstable country, ahead of war-ravaged or poverty-stricken nations like Somalia, Zimbabwe, the Congo, and North Korea

Afghanistan is number 8, seems we have turned the 'Alqaeda home' into a lesser agitation than Iraq...

Number of American troops in Iraq, June 2007: Approximately 156,000. Number of American troops in Iraq, May 1, 2003, the day President Bush declared "major combat operations" in that country "ended": Approximately 130,000.

And the president doesn’t even have the balls to admit ' we made a mistake '
instead blaming that 'mission accomplished banner' on the ships personnel. what an imbecile.

Number of Sunni insurgents in Iraq, May 2007: At least 100,000, according to Asia Times correspondent Pepe Escobar on his most recent visit to the country.

tell me, were there 100,000 actively people killing and blowing up citizens before 2003?

Number of American troops Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz and other Pentagon civilian strategists were convinced would be stationed in Iraq in August 2003, four months after Baghdad fell: 30,000-40,000, according to Washington Post reporter Tom Ricks in his best-selling book Fiasco.

Doesn’t this PROVE< we have absolutely NO CONTROL over anything in that country? we never intended this to become anything like it has, a MAJOR mis-calculation by the leaders of the country... yet some of you still support them.

Number of armed "private contractors" now in Iraq: at least 20,000-30,000, according to the Washington Post. (Jeremy Scahill, author of the bestseller Blackwater, puts the figure for all private contractors in Iraq at 126,000.)

With Dick Cheney still profiting when Halliburton does well, its amazing people don’t see this for what it is.
The 2nd largest army in Iraq, is a corporation, tied to the Vice president.

Number of attacks on U.S. troops and allied Iraqi forces, April 2007: 4,900.

How many attacks were Iraqi's actioning against the USA in 2002?

Percentage of Baghdad not controlled by U.S. (and Iraqi) security forces more than four months into the surge: 60 percent, according to the U.S. military.

60%?... How are we winning the war in Iraq, when they control MORE than we do?

Lets be honest, the proper figure is about 1%.. or how ever much the GREENZONE consists of.

Outside those walls, we have no say what happens... unless we decided to go on a ruthless rampage aka Fallujha...
60%.. huh.. id like to see the military go walking through the 40% and pretend to control it.
More body bags seem to be the only way 'Americans' change their mind on this illegal crusade.

Number of Iraqis who have fled their country since 2003: Estimated to be between 2 million and 2.2 million, or nearly one in ten Iraqis, at least 50,000 more refugees are fleeing the country every month.

Number of Iraqis who are now internal refugees in Iraq, largely due to sectarian violence since 2003: At least 1.9 million, according to the UN. (A recent Red Crescent Society report, based on a survey taken in Iraq, indicates that internal refugees have quadrupled since January 2007, and are up eight-fold since June 2006.)

Percentage of refugees, internal and external, under 12: 55 percent, according to the president of the Red Crescent Society

What a horrific event...
There's going to be no Iraqi's LEFT in Iraq for it to be a country...
Again, how is this invasion and occupation beneficial for the people? when even they prefer to abandon their homes to become refugees?

Percentage of Baghdad children, 3 to 10, exposed to a major traumatic event in the last two years: 47 percent, according to a World Health Organization survey of 600 children. Fourteen percent of them showed symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. In another study of 1,090 adolescents in Mosul, that figure reached 30 percent.

These children who saw parents, cousins, brothers, sisters and friends murdered by Americans, by bombs, by insurgents are all looking at the USA saying
'' NONE of this occurred before you got here ''

Obviously, America is to blame.. yet.. if these orphaned kids take revenge and attack an American, they are immediately terrorists..
yet, we wilfully bomb murder and maim and call it liberation...

Iraq's per-capita annual income: $3,600 in 1980; $860 in 2001 (after a decade of UN sanctions); $530 at the end of 2003, according to Asia Times correspondent Pepe Escobar, who estimates that the number may now have fallen below $400. Unemployment in Iraq is at around 60 percent.

Could you live with such a dramatic decrease in income?
Actually, looks like the only option left if your a father, is to join the Iraqi army, be a puppet for the Americans and be hated by your countrymen..


join the terrorists, gain some honour by killing the foreign invader and get paid for it too.... your gunna die anyway.. might as well die with 'your people'

and the hum dinger

Percentage of Americans who approve of the President's actions in Iraq: 23 percent, according to the latest post-surge Newsweek poll.

After 4 years of non stop chaos, death and destruction, 23% of Americans still trust and back the president in Iraq.
You’re probably the same 23% that voted him in 2000....
once infected by severe stupidity, forever stupid you should remain.
Pity, America has so much potential, to once again lead the world into a new golden age..

Unfortunately, too many of your STILL believe murdering Iraq’s children is for the betterment of humanity.
