Give it a break. The situation in Japan wasn't even slightly like the situation in Iraq. There is no God in Iraq requiring the people to follow the USA. There was no sectarian warfare going on in Japan, which was highly, highly unified. Your suggestion that we weren't "determined" in Iraq is just a sick insult. We conquered Iraq fully and completely. We were free to do absolutely anything we wanted at that point. And, you're still suggesting that "more toops" is a solution. But, we had more troops in Iraq, and the civil war was in high gear. You can NOT just say "more troops" - you have to state what it is that you think Bush should have had those troops doing. And, you need to have thought out why it was that Bush didn't have them doing that.
