BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Nightmarish political realities in Baghdad are prompting American officials to curb their vision for democracy in Iraq. Instead, the officials now say they are willing to settle for a government that functions and can bring security.
Nightmarish political realities in Baghdad are prompting American officials to curb their vision for democracy in Iraq. Instead, the officials now say they are willing to settle for a government that functions and can bring security.
The government is unable to supply regular electricity and at times running water in the capital. The health care system is run by one Iranian-backed militia and the national police are dominated by another. Death squads terrorize Sunni neighborhoods.
Sectarian cleansing is pushing people into segregated enclaves, protected by Shiite or U.S.-backed Sunni militias, and spurring the flight of thousands to neighboring countries.
Forgive me, but wasnt a functioning and secure government in power before we went in guns blazing?

Iraqi People's response:
Whoohoo!! Now we can all act like uncaged zoo animals and set modern civilization back a thousand years! We can run around all day shooting and beheading one another, slapping each other with shoes and fighting about who wears the prettiest diaper on their head! Thank you America!! Our chaos and mindless insanity will reign forever now in the name of Allah! We will now ravage our land fighting one another forever!! Let us all dance in the street now with our automatic weapons held high, smiles on our faces and each others' blood on our hands! Whoohoo!! Now give us someone to kill! Must kill! Need... more... blood!! Praise Allah!!
