mission accomplished

today the last British troops leave Iraq.  Iraq is a functioning and fairly stable democracy.  Which is more than can be said of Belgium.  What's not to like?  Read the excellent Julie on this.

I assume this is one of your more obtuse posts. Only yesterday a series of bomb attacks in Baghdad claimed the lives of 18 Iraqis with 76 people wounded in a new escalation in violence. You like this? Apparently Brussels escaped unscathed.

and if there was no democracy in Iraq this would not happen, hein? Just nice friendly death squads. Lovely.
