It is never good to lose a year

I just watched Frontline: the lost year in iraq. I have heard many of these things before. What struck me was how bad of an idea trying to remove members of the Baath Party from the government. That might be the worst mistake of the 21th century so far.

What I did not know was that the Bush administration wanted to get out of there so badly at the end of the first year. They had to stay because getting the government going failed so badly. They wanted to get out of there, but they could not get the job done. It makes me wonder what it will take us to get out of Iraq in the end.
