From the Washington Times: U.S. Air Force members in Iraq are furious over a recent order to take down all American flags at Kirkuk air base to avoid offending Iraqis. “The reason we were given is so we would not offend the Iraqi people,” said Air Force Technical Sgt. Samuel D. Arbuckle. “We were told that we are not occupying this country. And apparently we are not in charge. Well, my question is this: If we are not in charge, then who is?”
And more importantly, if we are not occupying the country and we are not in charge, why are we still there? I don’t have a problem with fighting the war that’s been declared on us. End the mullahs and the House of Saud. But this charade of establishing a democracy that isn’t a democracy isn’t going to work.
