The Battle for Baghdad

The mood over here is fairly resigned. George's plan may give us the stability we need to start to pull out, and then when everything goes to hell we can blame it on the Iraqis. But it won't make a bit of difference in the long run, unless we send a hell of a lot more than 20,000 troops, commit to keeping them here for another 5 years, and figure out a way get a dictator to run the place.

But wait a second, didn't we have a dictator to run the place already? True, he terrorized his people and listened to no one but his own yes men, I mean advisers, but isn't that what a dictator does? Yes though, it seems that the Iraqi people need someone with a heavy hand to rule them, to quell their differences, settle their arguments, someone to hate as they now hate us. If he's ruthless enough they might even forget how much they hate each other...
