Monday's hot topics - Iraq War & US foreign policy

Well now that Saddam is dead, let's move the discussion on to the Iraq war. Isn't it time it was over? It's been over 3 years now and I can't say I'm all that confident it will end well. I made some comments on the forum about this, showing my displeasure and got quite the response from my American friend who goes by the username Itry:
Your comments seem like nothing more then an anti-American rant to me. Maybe soon we will see Shawn Cuthill burning American flags? If you wish to appropriately complain that Bush was hasty in assuming that we could rebuild Iraq that would be an appropriate comment. You seem to be more interested in painting a picture of America as "the great evil empire." Such an attitude is astonishing to me when the only boarder Canada has is with the USA and that border is nearly completely unprotected. I am not suggesting Canada militarize the boarder, but their attitude of Americans as the "great evil empire" does not square with their lack of fear of America.
What do you think about Iraq? Are you a flag-waving American, or a flag-burning Canadian :). Click here to post your thoughts
