Those macaca ingrates!

We came in, removed the only person holding the country together (albeit, through a dictatorship), blasted their infrastructure back to the Stone Age, set back women's rights about 1,000 years, opened up a Pandora's box of sectarian violence, and demanded they accept a Western style of government, and THIS is how they thanks us?

WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 — President Bush made clear in a private meeting this week that he was concerned about the lack of progress in Iraq and frustrated that the new Iraqi government — and the Iraqi people — had not shown greater public support for the American mission, participants in the meeting said Tuesday.

Really, I have nothing to add to this, other than the fact that it points out just how cloistered, monomaniacal and tin-eared Bush is. Build nations? He couldn't build a peanut butter sandwich.

"Ah'm gonna hold my breath until Iraq makes a democracy!"
