“Iraq became a no-win situation when we decided to nation-build...”
It is my understanding that after running off the bad guys we helped them build schools, hospitals, infrastruture and arranged for them to hold free elections.
Presently, we are helping them maintain a relatively stable countryside. Relative, for instance, to Los Angeles County and its gangs.
We have a large number of unannounced accomplishments, including the opening of ur military facilities to treat the disproportionate rate of diseases and congenital defects suffered by their children due to Saddam’s toxic environment.
Perhaps you can give us a few examples of the disadvantages of using our military to nation build.
You've got it right.
“Perhaps you can give us a few examples of the disadvantages of using our military to nation build.”
I do not mean any disrespect to you, but if you truly must ask this question, you truly do not understand the nature of warfare, or the soldiers that engage in it.
I will give you this opinion: Iraqi’s are not worth the money or lives that we have spent on them in futile pursuit of an impossible pipe dream of an Arab democracy.
