Happy Birthday, Iraq War

My, you're all grown up now. You look so big. And you're so much more complex than we thought. You can do so many things--Shiite vs. Sunni, Shiite vs. Shiite, Shiite and Sunni vs. Americans--you're a little prodigy. Of course, raising you was a little more expensive than we imagined--I guess, like everybody else, we had stars in our eyes back then. And we all love gathering around wondering what you're going to be--civil war, World War Three, or, like Uncle Dick continues to call you, a victory. Good times.
