On December 21, 1941 The Japanese government launched a assive air attack on Pearl Harbor. President Roosevelt called this, "A day that will live in infamy. On March 22, 2002 The American Government attacked the country of Iraq without warning killing innocent civilians.

Without any doubt this cowardly action was another day that will live in infamy. Like the German army that invaded France and set up a Vichy government: the United States occupied Iraq and set up a puppet government.

The Free French of the interior, French Patriots resisted the Germans and killed the Vichy traitors who collaborated with the enemy. In Iraq a similar
patriotic resistance to enemy occyupation took place that has become known as the insurgency.

The hatred and killing in Iraq are viewed by pundits as a civil war between religious sects. It never enters their head that it could be a reaction of
patriots against the puppet governent installed by a hated enemy occupier. I watched a line of eight pundits on CNN ranging from Wolf Blitzer to James
Carville. None of them could figure out how when or why we should get the hell out of Iraq.
Shakespeare had the answer: "Stand not upon your manner of leaving but go at once".

What? "Cut and run!" How can we leave without honour? . . . Easy just like we entered . . . without honour.
