Civil War in Iraq, Why not??

The Iraq situation seems to be the lead story everywhere in the news lately. Everyone seems to be concerned about "civil war" erupting in Iraq. What's the big deal?? By now, most who know me are wondering, "Are you crazy?". The answer is "Yes, more than likely". But it doesn't make any difference. Let's track it down.

We are trying to export American democracy to Iraq. What is the defining moment in the history of democracy in America? It is not the establishment of the republic after tossing King George and the redcoats out. The government as we know it today was caused by the American Civil War or the War Between the States, depending on your point of view. The American Civil War ended the idea that we were a union of states and created the monster that is the federal government today. How do we export this to Iraq? It's a no brainer, we let them fight their own civil war. Hey, it sure worked here.

How do we do this? Pull back all American troops to defensive positions and let the opposing Iraqi groups go at it. When they finish killing each other in the name of Allah and the Koran, (you have to love that "Religion of Peace"), we just clean up and help the winners. Let's be honest, what's the down side to letting a bunch of fanatical Muslims kill each other? I thought about it all day and couldn't come up with one.

Get George W on the phone and give him this one free!!
