Failure

I've been trying to be positive & upbeat lately. Negativity doesn't help anything right?

Watching "No End in Sight" however just blew that right out the window.

Many of the facts and opinions presented I was already somewhat aware of, having read "Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq".

If even half of the material covered in "No End in Sight" is accurate or only marginally exaggerated I am still overwhelmingly ashamed and embarrassed by the actions of my country.

Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rice, Bremer, Slocombe... your decisions and actions have only weakened our country and given birth to people who will now stop at nothing to do us harm.

You are the terrorists that patriotic Americans should have been fighting to stop.

I hope some day you understand the full extent of the shame and harm you have done to this country.

Hi Jopsy,

Fiasco: the American Military Adventure in Iraq is dated July 2006.

Does it mean you were only aware of the fiasco in late 2006?

It was already planned by many people in the world, maybe mainly in France (well I am French…), when the war began in 2003!

But at this time most of American people, even Democrats, were mute and didn’t react to Bush’s decision.

French fries were even banned by I-don’t-remember-her-name because France was not supporting America.

And now, our French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, is supporting Bush…

The hell with politic, I will never understand it!

Hopefully there are people able to open their eyes and speak plainly, but anyway it’s too late for Irak, harm is already done and it will be now more difficult than ever to come back to a normal situation.

I don't think any of the people you mention will one day render accounts to the American Nation, after all YOU elected them (obviously not you in person!)

Hi Sofian-

I meant the movie covered many of the massive blunders that were chronicled in the book. The moronic decision to disband the Iraqi army was, in my opinion, second only to the utterly idiotic invasion in the first place.

Bush didn't want to liberate Iraq, he wanted to destroy it, so that tax money would be poured into the pockets of his cronies in the defense and oil industries.

A legacy the world will continue to pay for, for a very long time.

I'll never fault the French for not participating in this absurd and unnecessary war.
