I think it may be time to withdraw our troops. Not because what we are doing in Iraq is wrong, but because it seems inevitable with a majority of americans against the war and a projected time of 10 years to defeat the insurgency inside Iraq. I do not see the resolve to stay. According to recent polls, http://www.pollingreport.com/iraq.htm , Americans are increasingly saying that the war has not been worth it and 52% say a timetable should be implemented. General Casey said that these insurgencies generally go on for 10 years. After only two years of fighting, the majority of Americans are already saying it was not worth it. How much longer will it be before support for the war erodes until a president has to withdraw troops? Rumsfeld and other Bush officials have stated that success in Iraq means a viable democracy. Historically, it is improbable that a democracy can get a real foothold in Iraq in the next 10 years in such an unstable environment. I do not think my point can be easily dismissed. No matter what side you're on, its undeniable that the willpower to stay in Iraq is fading, but what do you think? Is there any foreseeable way that American support might increase, or any future progress in Iraq to support staying?
