Iraq needs the US to stay the course.
As bad as war is, and it is bad, trust me, alot of good has been done. I've seen it first hand, and know some of the people of Iraq. Children who
were afraid to go out side, and the parents who finally let them do so because we made it safe.
These are a people that have been treated worse than any one not an Iraqi would know. A horrable, dictator with vicious murdering rapist sons,
dominated the land for decades, ruling by scareing those poeple.
Jihadist terrorists, kill Iraqis just because of religious or tradition, these are differences which should unite them, yet doesn't. There is no
water treatment, or sanitation. Doctors who do practice, are over burdened with an average of one per 1,000 residents in the Diyala provence where I
We brought the schools back for those people, both a Sunni and Shia district, while also getting those two groups to work together in the Iraqi Army
and Police forces.
We are making a difference, don't let the media tell you other wise.
Take it from those who have been there, and willingly will go back to help further. The Iraqis I knew, want to see a pre saddam Iraq again, an Iraq of
prosperity and culture tolerance.
It was once a great nation, and with another nation getting their back, any nation willing to stand by them, they will be again.
Or, should we cut and run, bail on them as we did Afghanistan, and allow the insurgents to win. To continue the genicide, because thats what they do.
They blow up schools and mortar funeral services in the cemitaries.
If no other nation is going to stop the bs, then who will? No one should have to go it alone, not afer all they have suffered through, no, never.
Stay the course, make the difference, and prevent a mistake leaving them would create.
