I see that point, but does our reputation really hang in limbo over the state of Iraq right now? Everyone should be able to see that we have tried
our hardest to get them set in their new government. But there comes a point when using force to keep order is just patchwork on deep crack.
Ever see the movie Equilibrium? In that movie, they decided removing all emotions from everyone by taking suppressing shots would stop all violence.
The people refused to take their shots eventually and rose up to take back their old way of life. The "shot" in the case of Iraq, though, was the
US thinking that a democratic government would suppress violence and unite the countrymen into a more stable governing body. The movie showed that
you can't control people that don't want to be controlled. The same is true with Iraq. If it is forced it will not work.
