To the Editor:
   Iraq was invented in 1916 by Mark Sykes and George Picot, drawing lines on a map. Iraq was doomed by L. Paul Bremer when he purged the army of Shiite officers. Iraq was destroyed by David Petraeus when he armed and empowered sectarian militias. Whether it was ever a good idea or not, whether president Abadi is a good man or not, Iraq is dead. The Sykes-PIcot-Rumsfeld project is not in America's interest. No amount of duct tape and no further tally of American casualties will fix it.

Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. See the link below for more info.
