Four Years Later...

And it's one great big mess.

The UK Times Online has a headline that says "Iraqis: Life is Getting Better, with the choice quote:
The survey of more than 5,000 Iraqis found the majority optimistic despite their suffering in sectarian violence since the American-led invasion four years ago this week.
The thing is, you can get the original polling data here (it's a pdf file). In it you can find that only 49% of the respondents think that Iraq is better under the current situation than it was under Saddam Hussein. We tore apart their country and left it in ruins for some cause which has yet to be clearly and consistently articulated and 49% think that it's an improvement.

Wow. Heckofa job.a

"Greeted as liberators," indeed.
