Riverbend is in Syria

She writes about Leaving Home….

She and her family are in Syria, safe for the moment. She couldn’t stay in Iraq because of the mess the Hedgemony has created.

I read the post earlier today and just couldn’t muster enough spit to post anything about it. Goddess what a disaster we have delivered to Iraq. The pain and loss will last for generations.

The level of total incompetence involved in the entire Iraq episode strains the mind. How could so many purported adults, be so wrong about so much and still managed to feed themselves.

The US can’t fix this – the US is the problem.

The US can’t fix this, but they can make a good start by getting TF out of Iraq. Any positive effects of doing so would probably be prolonged if Bush/Cheney would resign their ill-gotten offices… or be impeached, convicted, removed from office and extradited to an international court. (I wish I could remember who it was that remarked that “extradition” is what you need when guests show up unexpectedly for dinner.)

Riverbend… along with any other Iraqi civilian who never lifted a finger against any American… did not deserve this. Wherever she ends up settling, it won’t be here. And the loss is ours.

She was forced out by the “Surge”, which made things worse and the ethnic cleansing more intense.
