So How’s That There “War on Terror” Working Out for Ya?

Per USA Today:

Al-Qaeda militants in key western Iraqi cities launched a series of brazen attacks against police stations and fought battles with government forces Thursday amid growing sectarian tensions between Sunnis and Shiites.

Al-Qaeda militants, emboldened by their powerful role in attempting to topple the government in neighboring Syria, have been exploiting a sense of alienation among many minority Sunnis in Iraq.

For all its evil, Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq was at one time a bastion of secularism in an increasingly Islamist region.

Then the US invaded and occupied Iraq, effectively turning the entire region over to Iran’s theocracy and al Qaeda’s missionaries.

Smooth move.
