    We removed an economic dominant minority from power...that is equal to mixing vinegar with baking soda.

    There is always a risk. What i cant understand is how we can even consider pulling out after weve seen the consequences of what happened after we pulled out of southeast asia. I dont know about anyone else but id rather not have millions of deaths on American hands again.

    Lord only knows how we came to be a world power with the collective attention span and resolve of a 3-years-old.

    Well, yeah ... that's because none of the self-serving, shortsighted folks had to do anything.

    Mine was we wouldn't have been then if John Q public had to turn his attention away from his self-serving interests for more than a couple of years. Fortunately, Reagan didn't need John Q to get the job done.

    If we withdraw now it'll be hell, staying in will be hell too, but in the end if we stay in and hopefully get some shit straightened out then it'll be better then just a cut and run situation. I just pray we can get this shit under control. I haven't seen the Iraqi Gov't doing shit for it's country since it's been created.
