Gen. Wesley Clark's views on Iraq

General Wesley Clark appeared on last Sunday's Meet The Press and gave a very sound and thought provoking assessment of the situation in Iraq and what needs to be accomplished.

He elaborated on those views in an op-ed in the Washington Post.

If you find the time to pull yourself away from watching guys and gals in raincoasts standing 5 feet outside their hotel rambling about how it's wet and windy (DUH!)near the truly horrendous Hurricane Katrina, Clark's views are worth a read.

I think Gen. Wesley Clark's heart is in the right place and he seems to have a handle on what a country occupying Iraq would do if it really wanted to help the Iraqi people.
Unfortunately it does not appear that the people running the occupation really care very much about democracy or the freedom and rights of anyone other than themselves.
That being the case I think the best way for an American to help the Iraqis is work as hard as she/he can to get the American military out of Iraq and back home as soon as possible.
If you can't do good at the very least you should try to stop doing harm.
