    I remember this. I was really surprised when Hamas won.

    When's the last time the US successfully overthrew something? Bay of Pigs? Shah of Iran? Saddam Hussein?

    Seriously, we should just accept that we suck at this and find something else to do.

    I'm reasonably certain we were successful in deposing Saddam Hussein.

    Yeah, it only took how many wasted lives? How many wasted dollars? And an entire country in chaos, to top it off.

    Looks like we did a fine job.

    i think the attempt to have him over thrown in gulf war I by the Kurds was a failure. the invasion and occupation of Iraq was vary successful in (if little else) regime change though
