So let me get this straight: The United States, which invaded Iraq despite opposition from virtually the entire civilized world, NOW wants other nations to contribute troops to help stabilize the country? And they want these foreign troops to take orders from the United States rather than their own governments!?!

Why are other nations being asked to clean up the mess Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney created? Is the United States making this request with a straight face? Are drugs involved? Should someone be taking urine samples from those three?

I hate to say this, but the United States is rapidly becoming an out of control drunken gorilla, blundering across the world stage, knocking over furniture and breaking expensive glassware. And sooner or later, he's likely to slip on one of his own discarded banana peels.
