    Informing your enemy you are leaving before he is defeated was bound to lead to this.

    Essentially the war is not winable unless the Iraqis are willing to win it, we could stay there 100 years and nothing would change.

    Maybe we should have let Saddam continue to rule Iraq?

    Maybe imposing Democracy on people who are not ready for it is a bad idea?

    Maybe there are some countries we won't like the outcome if the people are able to vote, for example Palistine Hamas/Habas.

    How about our buddies Saudi Arabia? Do they still treat women like farm animals? How come we don't push for Democracy there?

    Maybe you should post that to someone who gives a fuck.

    I opposed getting involved in asia back in 91 long before it came to that mess.

    we will simply let the fight it out...nixon did it in vietnam....pulling out....see where that got us...i wonder if pow/mia's will be KNOWING LEFT BEHIND this time?

    yes it is time for the iraqi's to step up...but we knew from the beginning they would never do it...they will simply turn on each other in old tribal hates...iraq at one time was very open to women's rights and education....we have certainly helped that along...havent we?

    Anything was bound to lead to this. Inevidable. How long do you want to stay? Do you even know which group the bombers belong to? Are they Shiite, sunni, kurd, al queda?

    Most people don't understand the big picture so they believe things like Stay the Course. If people knew all the facts, they wouldn't have stayed the course. Hell, we wouldn't have even went in.

    And the sad thing is, we did know this would happen. AND, it pretty much seems like they did it sloppy on purpose. No other explanation other than they wanted perpetual war so they could bleed the treasury indefinately.

    Who are "they"? You tell me. The people pulling Obama's/Bush's strings. The people who really own/run this country and decide our policies.

    I know. :cuckoo:

    Personally I don't give a flying fuck what happens to them.

    They need to handle their own problems.

    The problem goes back to WWI BoBo, when Woodrow Wilson threw out his stupid 14 points and started getting the US involved in other people's wars.

    FDR amplified it, truman made it policy and every president has done it since, and its now ingrained in people, they think we have some moral imperitive to 'save the world.'

    We need to get inside our own borders and mind our own business.

    Haloburton & Blackwater will stay behind to bleed the treasury long after the troops have left. That's who will protect Hunt Oil while they rob Iraq of its natural resources.

    Ah, if only they were sharing it with us, the people footing the bill.
