if we leave now, we'll leave Iraq in a bigger mess than it was when we decided to overthrow their government. it will be less stable, and more
dangerous than it was. with it's road system, bridges, water purification systems, electrical systems, ect...in worse shape. and, it will be more
at risk to falling to the islamic fanatics than it was.
the million dollar question that I have yet to hear anyone answer, is just what can we do to keep ourselves from finding the same situation two years
from now, or five, or even 10! either they are griping about how we shouldn't be there to begin with, or they are acting like things are just hunky
dorey and all is going so well, we will just keep with the status quo! well, we've invested something like $9 billion dollars into the country and
it's worse off than it was before we went in! I don't think what we are doing is really working out too well. And sometimes I get the feeling that
part of the problem is that some in washington never really wanted it to work in the first place.
I think what we are gonna end up with is a replica of the old afghanistan in the middle east, maybe closely alligned with Iran, maybe, if we're
lucky, not.....maybe they will decide to go back to their age old animosties and be too busy fighting each other that we won't have to worry.....
If not, well, we will have plenty to worry about!
outside of going into the country to begin with, pulling out now, before we have it stabalized......
, how we are to do that, don't really
know.....is the stupidist idea of the century in my opinion! and if we do that, this will be one american that will hang her head in shame!!! We've
created the mess, it is up to us to clean it up....or are we just a bunch of spoiled brats who lack a mommy to do it for us.
more than likely, the costs of this war are now starting to put a pinch on the wealthier americans pockets, ooops, you want who to give up those nice
tax breaks to help pay???? well, time to pull out I guess then! if you listen real closly to the rhetoric from the politicians, from the press, from
the powers that be, just as they were so gun hoe about going into the country, now well, it's more of a how can we get out of this as fast as we
can. either they are worried about their bank accounts, or they are worried about the next election. they've found out that the moral americans
aren't gonna let them slide by and steal the oil from the iraqis, or torture their prisoners, or make if another territory of the US. it takes all
the fun out of war.
it almost makes me want to keep voting the whole lot of them back into office with a note sent to them......you made the mess, you're stuck there,
until you clean it up.....try back next year!!
