Iraq after Saddam

Post by manonthemoon »

On Iplayer I've watched series 1 and 2.

I hate to say it but so far The American military aren't coming across as being too good.

It's called Once upon time in Iraq if any one has Iplayer.

Quite disturbing

They seem to have a flair for "regime change" to pursue their own agenda but have a habit of leaving things in a state for others to sort out.
A badly run democracy is now no better than a badly run communist or socialist state.

The problem in Iraq now is because Paul Bremer of the Coalition Provisional Authority disbanded the Iraqi army. Had they still been extant there would be no ISIS in that country and most probably the country would have a stable legal and economic outlook. The biggest mistake the Americans made.

Your post reminded me of the film Charlie Wilson’s War, pretty much shows exactly that. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie ... War_(film)

I've just started reading Martin Amis's book The Second Plane, it's throwing up some interesting points of view.
