I'm STRONGLY against the War in Iraq. I can't even begin to put it into words, but I'll try.
This war wouldn't be possible if it weren't for racism, fear of foreign religions, and political powermongering by a wealthy few.
If democracy were being practiced, this war would not be going on right now.
It is time for a pullout! Iraq deserves PEACE!
Now for the punch line...
I definately think that the terrorists should pull out of Iraq. Bin Laden and his henchmen should give up their own dreams of personal power and let
the people of Iraq have what they want- peace and prosperity.
I had my reservations about this little camel hunt, but it was hardly without justification. Saddam was an evil man. Saddam did not prove that he had
disarmed, probably because he didn't until he saw us coming. I had more than just reservations about the way in which we fought this war. Bush and
Co. completely mishandled this war because they were trying to do it small, fast, popular, and profitable when they should have been thinking about
WINNING overwhelmingly and bringing our guys back quick and alive.
My problem with the way the US is fighting the war isn't that we aren't getting out. My problem is that we aren't making it possible to get out.
The blame for not getting out when they should goes to the terrorists- and to Bush for not forcing them to.
I don't want the war to end tomorrow. I don't want a date set. What I do want is an official public estimate on how much Iraq needs in the way of
troops and hardware to become independently secure, and I want a clear and accountable program underway to accomplish that as fast as humanly
possible. I want the US out the day after the terrorists are done for, and I want our Lame Duck in Chief to play whatever political cards he has left
to get that done as quickly as possible. Maybe Halliburton will let him do just this one thing for America, since he's already done so much for
I'm against Bush, I'm against the terrorists, I'm against the war, but I'm not FOR a simple pullout. We're in, we have a reason to be in, we
should win, and then we should get the hell out. God, you'd think this was a complex question or something the way everyone argues about it, but from
where I sit, that all seems pretty simple- except for the part where we have to get politicians to act in the best interest of the American people.
I'm sure it must have happened before though... at some point... once in the last 200 years at least, so it's not completely impossible- just highly
