    actually conservatives have asked for a withdrawal from the beginning.

    The opposition in the US has a tendency to be whiners.

    Let's apply the anti-war rhetoric to the Bosnian situation, shall we?

    1. It was an illegal war. The UN security council didn't approve of it.

    2. The opposing sides have been at each others' throats for centuries, who are we to think that we'll be able to impose our way upon them?

    3. Our presence there is just causing more anti-American sentiment in a region that already is full of anti-Americanism

    4. The president lied and people died, he said we'd only be there a year, we're still there after almost 11 years
