. . . but does it seem to you that we shouldn't be surprised that the Iraqi government hasn't hit all the benchmarks we set for them? And after all we've done for them!
For example, we invaded their country, took down their government (not that Sadaam didn't deserve to be toppled), destroyed a fair amount of their infrastructure and killed lots of their people and then said, "by the way, here's a list of stuff we'd like you to take care of please."
How blind is Congress to not recognize that we haven't provided a lot of motivation to Iraqi leaders to make our "wish list" their priority. Regardless of how you feel about the war, no one should be surprised that our pompous, condescending attitude toward the rest of the world may have something to do with why they don't like us very much.
But maybe it's just me . . .
