WE ARE NOT THE WORLDS BABY SITTER. Patraus said he almost reigned when Obama pulled down troops in Afghanistan. If we cannot win a war in 10 years in small countries like Afghanistan and Iraq, we cannot win at all. We are just baby sitters. If these people wanted democracy and freedom bad enough they will fight for it. Evidently it does not mean much to them. They have been fighting for thousands of years and the strongest always win. Any time we leave these counties will revert back to old habits. Old habits die hard and we cannot force freedom down their throats. Iraq will always need a ruthless dictator unless Kurds, Sunni and Shiites forget they hate each other. They are not like Republicans and Democrats. Christians and Jews. They will kill each other and enjoy doing it. We need to think twice, like Colin Powell said; if we break it we own it. before we invade another country and try to force democracy and freedom down their throats. Corruption is wide spread in theses countries and in Mexico, which we should have been concentrating on the violence and corruption spilling over our borders and has been for a long time.
