Rice Rails on Iraq as Future Looks Bleak

 

US Secretary of State Condi Rice stated that Iraqis "don't have a future" if they stay on the path of violence engulfing their country. This statement comes as the US and UK look increasingly desperate to contain the chaos emerging from their war.

Amongst other prognoses for the region is one from the most senior US General in the Middle East, who warned that if the world doesn't figure out how to control Islamic militancy, a 3rd World War is inevitable.

As a further sign of how far the US has come in realizing that a change in tactics is needed, unofficial Bush representative James Baker has been talking to Syrian and Iranian officials to gauge "input and suggestions" on how they might help.

  I think  
 
that reaching out to Syria and Iran for input might be a good step. This would be a stark departure from the tough guy stance that the the US portrays.

  No more!  
 
Are you joking? The Bush dynasty really has to go. I don't care if it's Democrat or Republican, just get someone in office that is centrist and has a sensible, open-minded foreign policy that will open its ears to countries that really do deserve brass tacks negotiations like North Korea and Iran. These countries have it in their head that they are enemies of the west, a dangerous starting point for any sort of talks. This polarizing stance needs to disappear, it's tearing the world apart. It's going to take a long time to repair the damage the Bush administration has caused with relations with many parts of the world.
