This is the result of a lack of the American commitment to a sustained presence in Iraq. Whether or not you agree with the reasons for entering the country 11 years ago, the fact remains the history of our military intervention has proven that significant change can only be successful if a sustained presence for at least a generation is achieved. We as a country or an economy did not have the stomach for a military presence in the region for a long period of time. For that reason we probably shouldn’t have gone in in the first place. But now we have created a wider conflict that could engulf the region and greater powers, Russia included. With our ongoing animosity towards Moscow this could get out of hand quickly.

The content focus of this blog:This website consists of an ongoing discussion on the topics of history, society, politics, religion and... physics. Where are we going as a society? As individuals? How do we get there? And what are the laws that govern the process? Eh-em... There may also be fictional narrative posts for review as I attempt to decipher the story lines from the voices in my head.
