I was one of the people against the War in Iraq, for moral reasons. I still believe in turning the other cheek (by the way, I'm a veteran of the U.S.
Navy). The night before the invasion, I got into an argument with my girlfriend's father (Army vet) about the fact that it could be a long war that
could result in the draft being reinstated. He insisted that it would be quick and easy and that, "All you damn liberals always take that line".
Well, now that we are in it, I have to agree that it's too late to pull out. While I have no love for Bush, I feel that what he said the other day
essentially was correct. Once you start something like this, you can't quit just because it's getting hard. It would be like having an intervention
for a friend with a substance abuse problem then, after they've left rehab and are trying to get back on their own two feet, you say, "That's it
for me...you're on your own now" just when they need you most. Chances are, that person is going to turn back to the abuse.
Like I said, I don't think we should have gone in in the first place, regardless of the reason, however, I think it would be just as big a mistake to
