Baghdad and Kabul: politics versus war Paul Rogers – openDemocracy

As the Iraqi situation stands today, I worry that the United States may or may not be, once again, supporting the formation of a barbaric regime. This is the risk in being the primary instrument by which a power structure is instituted. And America has stepped to that platform.

If ever there was a time to pray for our country and for wisdom to be given our leadership, I believe that time is now.
