This cannot be the Iraq that President Bush brags about
"Iraq's descent into bombing quagmire"
"The US and British governments saw the invasion of Iraq as a liberation, a way of getting rid of a particularly nasty regime. Instead, things are getting much worse.
The casualty figures mean that on average as many people are now dying here every day as were killed in the London bombings nearly two weeks ago.
It has become a civil war, fought out with car bombs and shots to the head, while the foreign forces, US and British and the rest, look on, incapable of stopping it. This isn't how things were supposed to turn out here."
The above is from a firsthand report filed on July 19th by the BBC's world affairs editor, John Simpson.
I don't see much of a difference between the Jihadi Moslems and some of the fire and brimstone Christians.
But majority of the Brits are not supportive of Blair and his policies.
I might be wrong, but I also think it's the same in the US with Bush! So, how do they keep getting re-elected?
