Might have something to do with the idea that Korean and European civilians don’t shoot at us. Maybe I’m just making a wild guess here. My personal opinion is, we gave the Iraqis freedom, we to a degree destabilized region. This after a long divorce from a dictator we once supported. We gave them their freedom, and what the hell did they do with it?

My personal opinion is that most Americans view the Iraqi people as a bunch of ingrates, and I honestly can’t disagree with them at this point. The Iraqi people have not done a damn thing to show they deserve their freedom or that they deserve their country. They’re not out in the streets risking life and limb for their country against the extremists, farthest from it, it’s all a rush for power and we’re stuck in the middle of it.

So we only send our soldiers places where they don't shoot at us. I am sensing an historical disconnect here. Go back and look how long it took to pacify Germany after World War II, and our military history on the Korean peninsula. I totally agree with you about the Iraqis being a bunch of ingrates, and I don't think they have a clue how to build a decent society. My concern is less for the Iraqis than it is this, in which Cliff May kind of lays out the dilemma:
