Do Bush And Blair Realise Their Iraq Invasion Has Become A Damned Disaster ?
Sounds to us like a sensible, straightforward and simple enough question to ask.
Wouldn't you also say so?
See what some others have said on the same subject.
How the big wheels in the Bush administration have turned full circle
*The CIA Man*
"Iraq is now what Afghanistan was in the late-1970s and throughout the 80s into the 90s, and that's an insurgent magnet, if you will, a mujahedin magnet, only much, much worse."
Michael Scheuer, Former Head of the CIA's Bin Laden Unit
"The US objective in Iraq has failed... Our mission has failed because Iraqi animosities have proved uncontainable by an invading army of 130,000. And the administration has, now, to cope with failure."
William Buckley, Conservative Editor of The National Review
"The commitment of our forces to this fight was done with a casualness and swagger that are the special province of those who have never had to execute these missions - or bury the results."
Retired Marine Lt Gen Gregory Newbold
*The Administration Man*
"We didn't have enough troops on the ground. We didn't impose our will. And as a result, an insurgency got started and... got out of control."
Colin Powell, Former Joint Chief of Staff and US Secretary of State
"There'll probably be some things in our report that the administration might not like... I personally believe in talking to your enemies. Neither the Syrians nor the Iranians want a chaotic Iraq."
James Baker, Former US Secretary of State

Seems as though saying "shambles" would be an understatement, eh?
