As far as I'm concerned the present administration hasn't done anything they promised with the occupation of Iraq. They haven't improved the situation in a real sense, they haven't brought in the infrastructure they promised, they haven't even repaired the damage they made, and U.S. solders are still dying every week in a war the administration declared 'over' when it really isn't. I'm calling them on it. And they've failed miserably so far.

This article shows, pretty clearly, how bad it has gotten in particular points of the city. This one seems to show a bigger picture of the same problem, with some of the same resignation to what's necessary that I have. I didn't want them to fight this war. That said, I do believe that the U.S. has a responsibility to bring back stability, and to that goal, I'd be in support of the troops being there. However, it's like there isn't any direction to DO that over there in a big way.

Cutting taxes is just so STUPID in the face of all the expenses of the war, the expenses of all the people that are out of work, and in the face of all the money that's needed to build things. It's just beyond comprehension.

Anyway... that's my thoughts at the moment about all this, and I gave the administration some time to prove that they really were going to do all the things that they said they were.
