Why you can't compare Iraq's "New Start" to ours.
- America brought about change on its own. Iraq didn't.
- America didn't have the British government breathing down their necks to draft our constitution.
- America didn't have three tribes and an influx of terrorists to deal with due to an attack by the British.
- If you really want to make comparisons, don't forget...
- America had a bloody civil war. By all evidence, so will Iraq.
- America, until 20th Century liberal lawmaking, turned a blind eye to slavery, lynching, and suppressing minorities' and women's rights.
- America is still having a hard time abiding by the constitution we have.
