All Over Again
How many times were we told that a small and desperate minority was lashing out because they were losing the war against powerful America in Iraq?
When was that ever true?
How would it be any different if they were actually winning the battle?
These attacks, these bombings, they aren't a sign of success. They are an attempt - always have been, always will be - to enflame one population in Iraq against another, enflame the Shiite population into war with itself, with the US, and with the Sunnis. To have these bombings continuing doesn't show that there has been or is an imminent American victory in Iraq. All it shows is that someone with money is still backing the groups responsible for this sort of warfare.
In other words, nothing has changed, not even the absent-minded official rhetoric of the US government.
This is why the American people didn't elect Hillary Clinton as President.
