It's Time to Leave--RIGHT NOW > I don't think so but thats just me
But it's ESPECIALLY time to leave NOW: now that the very last reason that the neocon thugs could possibly give for our continued presence is officially OVER.
Sorry but no
here is my take on all this...Iraq is our mess correct we started the war we ousted Saddam wouldn't it be rude to come into someones home mess it up and just leave it a mess...frankly the idea of just leaving the Iraqi's to their own demise strikes me as awfully cold for a supposed liberal, I was under the impression that liberals were all about love for your fellow man love mean sticking with them and helping them even when things look bleak, the US is by no means being crippled by the war we are the richest nation on the planet and we are no where near going broke...to up and leave the Iraqi people (innocent people) to be slaughtered by men like Bin Laden for their own sick personal reasons. To leave now would be a death sentance for thousands for Iraqi's who will die in a bloody senseless civil war that could be advioded it the US would just fix the mess it started.
How do we fix the mess, we build the Iraqi infrastructure (ecomony, military, police, healthcare, etc.) and leave them better than when we found them, Iraq is getting better, how can I say that there is hope and hope is the first thing needed to make things better. The US occupied Japan and Germany and look at them now, we have a pretty good track record in regards to fixing things. But when we cut and run (Vietnam, Korea, South America, Iraq and Iran) things end up pretty crappy. For this to work and for the Iraqi people not to pay for Bush's blunder we must all stick it out and pledge to fix our mess.
