    Nothing new here. But this is the consolidation of all that went wrong and is wrong with the region that is going to define generations to come.

    Two things stand out:

    1) The dismissal of Saddam Hussein's troops by that ***** Donald Rumsfeld

    2) Maliki

    Rumsfeld has no reason to invade Iraq in the first place.

    Apparently, when he told Tommy Franks to start drafting an invasion plan, Franks' reaction was: "Goddamnit what the ***** is he talking about?"

    Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it

    I never understood why they kicked them out. Even after WWII, the security forces of the FRG and Japan were fullied with nazi and imperial officers. Iraqi officers weren't worst, and now, as we can also see in the programm, they are the ones leading ISIS ranks.

    BTW, isn't Maliki having a "fair" trial as Saddam for the genocides commited?
