I think going out of Iraq now is the worst possible thing we could do. Something else needs to be done to make sure our people over there are kept safe, and i honestly haven't a clue how to do that. <br><br>
There was as article I saw yesterday, in my local newspaper I think, which said that the Bush Administration is trying to work an internationalization of the occupation via NATO. That would be a solution, although not an ideal one since NATO is still "the West" and we end up with the same cultural dynamic. It also seems that NATO as an organization won't do it unless there's UN approval--so we're back at square one. To paraphrase another problem and another election cycle, "It's the UN stupid" <br><br>

Yep, once you're in it<br>you're there for the long haul.<br>This war had nothing to do with <br>9/11, and should have never been <br>entered into in the first place.<br><br>IMO oil was not only at the core of the war <br>we find ourselves in, but it was also at the core <br>of the WTC attack that was then used as an excuse<br>to take over throw OPEC and take over the Middle East.<br><br>I still believe to stop the spread of hatred and fear, for the<br>Arabic people know that they are the next targets, we should<br>hold the greedy people that structured this conflict for their greed<br>and hold them responsible in a world court. They should be made to<br>serve as an example of what happens to people that disturb the peace. <br><br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green>

Nothing wil be gained now by staying in Iraq.<br>We know how many hundreds of thousands of troops the US has staged around the world.<br>It is not a safe move to speread yourself so thin.<br><br>Even after all these years .. the hare still can't beat the tortise.<br><br><br><br><br>
<I>The UN Oil-for-Food program was supposed to help the Iraqi people acquire the food and medicine they needed while U.N. sanctions against Iraq were in place, sanctions that could have been lifted had Saddam Hussein complied with the resolutions that the UN Security Council adopted following the first Gulf War.<br><br>Incredibly, the deposed leader was able to bribe a global network of international power players and turn the Oil-for-Food program into a massive charade. Saddam orchestrated this operation so successfully that over seven years he may have collected up to $10 billion in illegal cash kickbacks while officials at the United Nations apparently turned a blind eye -- thus victimizing the very people Oil-for-Food was intended to help.[/i]<br><br>Yep, anyone that doesn't agree with you must be just stupid people.<br><br>
