Why are Americans surprised that this civil war in Iraq is so brutal and so anti-USA? Who invaded that country for no real reasons, who committed so many crimes that still go unpunished, who destabilized a nation that for better or worse was pretty well unified under Saddam Hussein? We did.

What do we expect, love and gratitude? This is what war does and we created this one, we reap what we sow.
