Iraq: Lets declare victory and leave!


I am not a fan of George W. Bush! His stubborness is not the same as good judgment. Lincoln and FDR were stalwart in the face of adversity, but the Civil War and World War II were worth fighting for. Iraq, not!

Our adventure in Iraq was justified largely to keep WMD's out of the hands of terrorists. Saddam had no history of giving WMD's to terrorists. Russia has lots of loose nukes, chemical and biological weapons which terrorists might get. Low level radioactive waste in the US could be used by terrorists for a dirty bomb! Iran, North Korea and Pakistan were greater sources to leak weapons to terrorists.

I suport military force and our troops, but I feel Iraq is a lost cause. I would have fought in the Civil War, WWI and WWII and Korea, but I think our wars in Vietnam and Iraq are poorly thought out quagmires that lead nowhere. Even Afghanistan war, which was justified by the Taliban's connection with Al Queda, is a mess.

We do not have enough troops to occupy Iraq and too many in the country playing the role of targets in a shooting gallery. Like Reagan's debacle in Lebanon, and Clinton's in Somalia having our service men and women die for a political purposes not central to our defense is unacceptable. I say declare victory and leave!
