    ___

    The good news is that the Germans are looking to help more in Iraq. I can certainly understand thier opposition in the first place, but the damage is done. Time to try and put the pieces back in order. Its a shame the Bush administration has handled this so ineptly. There was a chance for an Iraq without an insurgency that got out of control. Piss poor intelligence, a negligent political leadership policy, and a military not equipped to do the job has cost hundreds of billions, with thousands of dead Americans and sore in the global arena that will take a generation to heal.
