An article asks, "Why has Iraq war lasted nearly as long as WWII?"
I'll tell you why. Because we never planned on leaving in the first place! Did this guy buy that line of BS about going to Iraq, overthrowing a dictator, and then coming home!? What a gullible sap! Ha! We're talking about a government of war profiteers and embedded government contractors! It's a permanent occupation, man, it's an acquisition, we have annexed Iraq the way Saddam Hussein tried to annex Kuwait.
Just google permanent bases in Iraq or some such thing. I keep having to repeat this: we are there forever!
