"Before the war, the equilibrium between Iraq and Iran was a principal geopolitical reality within the region. At that time, the government in Baghdad was a Sunni-run dictatorship. The Shiite-dominated, partly democratic structure that has emerged from the war has not yet found the appropriate balance among its Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish components. Nor is its long-term relationship to Iran settled. If radicals prevail in the Shiite part, and the Shiite part comes to dominate the Sunni and Kurdish regions, and if it then lines up with Tehran, we will witness — and will have partially contributed to — a fundamental shift in the balance of the region." Kissinger
Well, Henry…. You and your pals in the Bush/Cheney/neocon menagerie broke Iraq. You destroyed the "equilibrium between Iraq and Iran." You all conspired to deceive the American people and convince them that Iraq was an imminent nuclear threat to the United States. What you really wanted was to trigger a social revolution in the Islamic world that would make safe your "friends." You succeeded in that misinformation propaganda campaign. The US invaded Iraq and then searched the country for years looking for the non-existent nuclear weapons that your lies had made people expect to find.
The revolution against religion never happened. Instead your war enabled the forces of Islamism. There are Sunni Islamists and there are Shia Islamists. You enabled the Shia Islamists. Now you, and yours, are unhappy that your tinkering with history has produced unplanned results.
Well, Henry. We are done In Iraq. Your adventure is the disaster that I have often called it. pl
