Was it ten years ago when the dynamic trio of Bush/Rumsfeld/Cheney decided America had to wipe out evil Weapons of Mass Destruction and bring peace and democracy to the oppressed people of Iraq. After all, they were ruled by an evil man named, Saddam Hussein. Of course, the US never said a word during the 1980s when Saddam gassed his own people, but the evil man then was a good man who had invaded evil Iran. American troops left Iraq last year with knowledge that after ten years of learning about democracy the people of Iraq were now prepared to live in harmony and peace with one another.
Yesterday,at least 86 people in Shiite and Sunni areas of Iraq died at the hand of suicide bombers. About 150 were wounded. This has been the pattern throughout the month. Under Saddam, the Sunni, those who adhere to Shiite belief were oppressed. Naturally, it is only fair now that Shiites are in power for them to oppress Sunni. Hopefully, Muslims in the Middle East know it took European Christians over a hundred years to live in peace with one another. Ninety years to go?
