Iraq Insurgents Employ Chlorine in Bomb Attacks

Colonel Garver said that the chemical attacks could soon appear again. “It’s no surprise that anti-Iraqi forces or terrorists or whoever is doing this are trying to replicate this kind of attack,” he said. “They perceive that it’s working.”

Emphasis added.

What are we doing there? Who is the enemy? Why does our policy in Iraq involve only the military? What good can our troops accomplish? Why is it in America's interest to occupy a Middle Eastern country? When will our occupation end, and why can we not end it now? Who are we to destroy a country in the name of bringing them democracy?

Why are the questions from 2003 the same questions as now, in 2007?
