The United States of America has 5% of the population of the world, but is one of the most influential nations in the world.
This is incredible isn't it? I don't know about you but this makes me feel proud to be an American. Does America make mistakes yes no doubt. Was the war in Iraq a mistake? Many would say it was but how did the United States deal with this mistake? They gave the oil fields back to the Iraqi people and government. They did their best to demonstrate how a democratic republic works.
Now the government of Iraq is falling apart again. What will the United States do to continue to be a great influence on the world?
Time will tell. But because the nation is full of some great people I have a feeling that Iraq will see a stable government within the next two decades and the United States of America will help make this happen

We have essentially abandoned Iraq - making all the sacrifice and blood shed by our soldiers essentially meaningless. That's more of the change delivered by our government over the past five years.

I am proud to be an American, but as a lot of veterans are saying nowadays, our current commander-in-chief is making that sentiment increasingly more difficult.

The abandonment of Iraq is a shame and short sighted action! Completed by men and women who fail to understand how the world works! This is a stain on the current administration. An avoidable one at that. With time and education, democracy may have worked in Iraq.

One more thing about Iraq, and the middle class
Democracy is under attack. In the U.S. the gap between the poor and the rich is widening at an alarming rate the world sees this and takes note.

Citizens all over the world have praised China's authoritarian model for government in spite of it's harsh humanitarian violations. This means that the individual rights revolution could reverse or stop.
The fight for Iraq is more than just a fight for right now it is a fight for the future of the worlds government structure.
