The Middle East is a big place and there can't just be one policy for all
of it. The USA policy in Afghanistan was noble and the 2001 invasion
necessary, although with each passing year the reasons for staying there
become weaker, particularly now that Bin Laden is dead.  The USA policy in
Iraq is neither noble nor ignoble it is idiotic, mythical weapons of mass
destruction level idiotic, thank you so much George Fucking Bush.
