'A Devastating Portrait'

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that if you're trying to solve a problem, you need to ask the people closest to the problem what they think.

Which is exactly what ABC News did.

From ABC "A new national survey paints a devastating portrait of life in Iraq: widespread violence, torn lives, displaced families, emotional damage, collapsing services, an ever starker sectarian chasm — and a draining away of the underlying optimism that once prevailed."

Full story here.

When you read the ABC News story, substitute the word "America" or "Americans" every time you see the word "Iraq" or "Iraqis." Better yet, put in the name of your city or state.

Imagine living how the article describes. For Americans, it is ... unimaginable.
