From the New York Times this morning:
“A bloody day,” Khalil Ahmed (not pictured), a 30-year-old engineer, said simply, as he stared at the cranes and bulldozers trying to rescue victims buried under the police station.
“From the day of the fall of Saddam until now, this is what we have — explosions, killing and looting,” he said. “This is our destiny. It’s already written for us.”
A misadventure of titanic proportions right from the start. But at least Halliburton got a big oil contract, so I guess that makes it a success.
May God have mercy on us all.
