This is what 'instability' looks like, Mr Steyn

Well done Messrs Perle, Kristol, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Frum, Feith, Cohen and the Wurmsers!
You've turned a stable, if repressively run country- one which posed no threat to anyone- into a bloody war-zone- one which in the words of a recent CIA report has become the 'major center for jihadists'.
I remember a pre-invasion piece in The Spectator by the neo-con writer and theatre critic Mark Steyn in which he lambasted the so-called 'stability' junkies (me included) for not supporting regime change in Iraq. Well Mark, you've got your 'instability' now. Are you satisfied?

"Mark Steyn" & "stability" are not two concepts I normally associate with each other...

Well considerning you are one of the main supporters of instability in Iraq, a strange post (well stranger then usual).

'Considering you are one of the main supporters of instability in Iraq'?
Can you explain this one Steve?
Correctly predicting that something would happen is not the same as supporting it, old bean.
Steyn and co wanted a bit of instability in the Middle East -now they've got it. The neo-cons started this war, not me!
