Tragedy

Once, I said that I believed that the US was morally correct in overthrowing Sadaam Hussein. This had much to do with Hussein's attempted genocide of the Kurds, which put the man and his regime beyond the pale, as far as I was concerned.

Later, I said that, if things weren't going well in Iraq, we still had a responsibility to finish the job and not surrender the country to civil war.

But, I have a very bad feeling that it's now too late.

Am I correct in assumming that bad feeling you have is similar to how I feel-like an idiot?

It's hard, isn't it? Wars never go well, and so you expect that. But, to have it go this badly is just heartbreaking. Dan Savage has said that the people who hate Bush the most are liberals who supported the war, and I think he's right about that. But, my fear is that maybe this whole endeavor was doomed from the start.
