The war in Iraq...

I think it has been a while since this was discussed last...just wondering if people have changed their mind about the war....

Small poll....either stay in Iraq or leave Iraq...

Keep discussion civilized if you care to comment...

Leave. There's no such thing as an exit strategy that won't lead to a civil war. Making some kind of "timeline" for withdrawal is just going to gte more U.S. soldiers killed. We can either leave and let them fight amongst themselves or keep troops there for the next 300 years. We did what we went over there to do - Saddam's gone, there are no WMDs. There's no reason we can't pull out and call it a victory.

This would require a DeLorean and a Flux Capacitor.

woody, sorry, but your poll is too simplified, and Iraq is not a simple place.

Stay? For how long?

Leave? When?


Under what conditions do either happen?

It is too long and convoluted for me to opine on the subject considering that no matter what I say, someone will still say I am an idiot. So lets just get it over with and someone just call me a fool and get it over with.

This is what the discussion part of the thread is for.....

...Leave now.....or stay.....how we leave doesn't have any bearing on the poll.....either the troops start coming home or they don't.

They've been fighting with each other for 3000 years. They'll continue to do it if our troops are there or not. Why get our sons and daughters killed and spend billions of dollars per year in the process?

Stop wasting money on their country and tell them we'll stay out of their business as long as they stay out of ours. Stop all exports to them, ramp our countries defenses so we dont have more terrorist attacks, and basically remove Middle EAst from the maps.

Good wars are good for the economy, stupid wars are good for inflation.

Set up some kind of presence in the middle east. Similar to what we have in Germany. Let the religious kooks kill each other all they want. Just make them aware we will put foot to *** anytime we decide we need to. After all it really is all about the oil.

60c? ****, I'd be fanatic if it went down to 2$.

In my opinion we are being jerked around, more soldiers are losing their lives, and it is getting put on the back burner of the public media. We've heard more bull**** about Anna Nicole Smith and Paris Hilton on the nightly news that we have about any sort of positive or negative movement in Iraq. It is becoming crystal clear we've done what we wanted to do, and there are no real FINAL objectives for our occupation. We will not build a working democratic system in that country in 2 years.
