    It's kind of sickening the way the Democrats want to hang the Iraqis out to dry. It's obvious that if we are going to stabilize Iraq we need our troops there.

    Our main goals need to be getting normal life back to the people in Iraq.

    We're not going to. It is going to be very interesting to see how this plays out for the US in the next decade. Truth be told, we are Great Britain C. 1937; though with a heck of alot more money and ability, we are willing to toss it away. I'm truly not understanding why, but do understand that is what we are doing.

    Exactly. As I said, I don't know why. I do know it's a failure of both parties, two branches. But we seem determined to do so.

    We chose to enter. Certainly wasn't necessary for US, we knew that.

    I don't think $$ are the issue. We're leaving, sooner or later.

    I'll not hold my breath, I do believe the Brits were the only ones to pay us back from WWII and if memory serves, the final payment was within the last decade. The Fed is NOT good at collections.
