"Republicans and Democrats are going to have to love their children more than they hate each other."

As many have predicted sectarian violence in Baghdad is descending Iraq into civil war. In this bloggers humble opinion, most of it caused by the United States invading Iraq in violation of international law. Now Gen. John Abizaid, the top U.S. commander in the Middle East, told the Senate Armed Services Committee "I believe that the sectarian violence is probably as bad as I have seen it." Really???? Do you have to earn those stars to guess that one? Now here comes the chorus line. Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also told the panel, "We do have the possibility of that devolving into civil war." Again is this rocket science?? Here's the killer, excuse the pun, the general says, "Shiite and Sunni are going to have to love their children more than they hate each other."

Whatever!

Guess what, Shiite's and Sunni's have never "loved" each-other (in the sense of the word) but they were not strapping bombs until the U.S. government came creating problems through the invasion. Well, taking from the Pentagon play book, I guess I can say, "Republicans and Democrats are going to have to love their children more than they hate each other."

Oh, thats right, our children are going to pay for the wars.
