[To Pat Buchanan:] Great article. You definitely nailed it ["Why Iraq has no will to fight"].
The few Iraqis I met briefly in the late 1970s seemed well-educated, and I liked them. After the brutal Saddam regime, and our invasion of Iraq under George W. Bush, I naively believed they deserved a chance for a democratic government. Yes, how naïve were our good intentions.
I hope you continue your excellent articles, which I have thoroughly enjoyed for over the years.
