    I am a Democrat and supported Obama's efforts to get our troops home and the decision to not let our troops be subject to Iraqi law in exchange for a resideual force staying there. Despite that, I predicted this tribal warfare would resume, because the Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds have always fought. There is not a true nationalism because the factions place their differences above national pride, And, with the Shiite leaders being close to the Iranian government, the significant number of Iraqis who really do want Democracy may have a long and bloody wait.

    So if Ghosh is so concerned let him go over there and fight that war.We have lost enough G.I.'s over in that country and wasted so much money that is needed in our country.Jim Thomas Phx.Az.

    What did America know and when did it know it. Someone on the Hill ask the questions and get the answers, or is everyone afraid.
