Response to Historic NY (Reply #5)

17. Easier said than done.

Destabilizing Iraq created one hell of a mess. The knee-jerk reaction to these atrocities it to annihilate the fuckers. Unfortunately, things are not that simple. They are not easy targets. They are among civilians. Dropping bombs will kill civilians. Ground forces will result in the death of soldiers. Then there are Shiites, Sunnis, and Kurds, all with issues with each other. I don't know the answer, but Iraq was a hell of a lot more stable than before our invasion.
