The Gold Dome Is Profounder Than The Purple Finger

With the destruction of this 1,200-year-old Shi'ite mosque (the gilded dome had stood for a century and had even survived while Saddam was in power), it's the eve of civil war in Iraq, and we're still throwing American lives and American tax dollars loan money from Dubai and China into what looks to be a protracted hellhole of Shi'ites and Sunnis at each others' throats. I believe that we are past the point now of saying, "We cannot leave or it will spiral down into chaos." Ladies and gentlemen, the chaos is now up to our armpits and rising. Forget an exit plan; President Bush obviously had no plans to deter what is being called a "Shi'ite 9/11" in the city of Samarra (if for no other reason than to keep Iran at bay). So, we have to ask, what are we fighting for in Iraq and whom are we failing at home?
