Maybe There Is No Solution

I think the same questions could be asked of those who supported the Iraq War.  You know, were they right in their predictions?  Were there weapons of mass destruction there?  That's what the war was sold on.  Was democracy easily achievable?  Was the war won in 2005, when many of these people said it was won?  Um, they didn't really, I think, understand the civil war that would break out.  And what's going on now, I don't blame on President Obama.  Has he really got the solution?  Maybe there is no solution.  But I do blame the Iraq War on the chaos that is in the Middle East.  I also blame those who are for the Iraq War for emboldening Iran.  These are the same people now who are petrified of what Iran may become, and I understand some of their worry.
