Even though I've never stepped foot in Iraq, my gut is telling me that Robert Fisk sums it up pretty well."They endured the repulsive Saddam. They endured our shameful UN sanctions. They endured our invasion. And now they must endure the anarchy we call freedom."
He outlines the results of an overall badly management war/operation/campaign - the word used doesn't matter. What matters is that we have messed up big. We managed to alienate a country and region even further, rather than build bridges. A huge wasted opportunity."...what I saw was infinitely more disturbing: a nation whose government rules only its capital, a country about which we fantasize at our peril."
