Hold the War Criminals to account.
The Iraq War is over. Iran won.

This is something that I've been thinking about for a number of years now. I believe that the US has caught the "British Disease" - that is 19th century imperial hubris.It is interesting to note that the US's policy in Iraq is similar to the British policy in that country in the 1920s. The British policy failed - but it did deliver some contracts that where remarkably beneficial to the IPC.
When you start to consider that the US "century" could already be nearing an end before it has properly begun (the blossoming empire contains the seeds of its own downfall) then it becomes quite interesting to speculate about what might follow...In the right conditions, the collapse of the Bush/Rove machine could also bring down the whole corrupt two-party/lobbyists/vested interests/industrial-military system, awakening a political consciousness in people... who knows where it could go from there?
It's an interesting take for me since my great-grandfather fought in the Boer War.
