We lied our way in there so there is no way out. Haven't the military built 5 military airbases in Iraq, strategically located?- Did we ever have an exit plan?- Didn't we build the largest embassy that dwarfs any of Saddam's many palaces? I don't think we ever intended to leave. We blew it long ago in Iran and now in Saudi Arabia. We aren't welcome in Saudi Arabia anyways, as it makes Moslems angry that we as infidels, are on their holy ground. We need a different Base of operations to protect our interests. Remember one of Bin Laden's excuses for hating us. Iraq fills the criteria quite well.
Power and propaganda- politics main objectives- with the goal of making money. That is what our troops are defending. Not our freedoms, definitely not our security, as their presence in Iraq is making the world more insecure. Bringing democracy with the end of a gun is a contradiction in terms. If you swallow that bullshit, then have I got a manure spreader for you! Makes it so easy to swallow and then distribute because it's well lubed with Pork Bellies feeding and defacating their a/effluence over their devoted vegetables.
Dori put together great reasons why we should support the troops by getting them out and I have given the reasons why we shouldn't support our Military/Industrial/Government triple helix dilemma. If you support the troops then get them out now. This thing can only get uglier as we get more aggressive. What next? Pakistan?
We'll need grease to slip out of this sticky situation.
Sending more troops in is not supporting the troops. It is stirring up trouble on a global scale and sending a message that far outweighs any gains that we will realize in our war on terror, especially if we are viewed as that terror! It's not a question of who will stand with us, but who is aligning against us. And it's beginning to look like a lot more of them than us. The proverbial crapola is on a collision course with the shit spreader now!
For the sake of sanity, I Voted NO.
