Iraq: America's Gaza Strip

Just great. Thanks George Bush.

Thomas Friedman:
"'Many Iraqis have so much distrust for U.S. forces we found they've come up with a nickname for our troops,' Scott said. 'They call American soldiers 'The Jews,' as in, 'Don't go down that street, the Jews set up a roadblock.'"
Yeah, I realize it's abysmal that Arabs are so reflexively racist against Jews. But, like it or not, it's a prevailing opinion in the Arab world, and that's the part of the world Bush put our soldiers in to occupy.

What a total disaster.
