Iraq is not where we should be anymore. We went there under false pretext, in search of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and have found none. The few WMD Iraq had were given to them by us the CIA and other agencies to fight Iran which at one time was our deadly enemy.
The United States encouraged the Kurds and the Shiites to fight the Sunnis who owe their allegiance to Saddam Hussein - the two groups listened to the CIA and we never ever followed through. The result thousands died and today the United States does not except being responsible for the death of thousands of innocent freedom loving Iraqis.
We should not be in Iraq doing any policing. We went there to fight a war - we won the war and now it is left to the Iraqis to govern their land. After all Iraq is the home of civilization. Iraqis can govern themselves - it may not be a perfect government but they should be allowed to manage their own affairs.
The United States will never make money in Iraq. Right now we are using our tax payers money to rebuild Iraq. While this gesture makes sense to a few crooks that manage the White House - it has adversely impacted millions of taxpayers in the United States.
President Bush thinks what he is doing is right. It is just a matter of time before Iraq will bring him down just like it did his father - the senior Bush. The Republicans will lose and soon we will have a Democrat in the White House. A few years from now contrary to what most think the Democrats will control the Congress and a few years later the Senate.
The Bush Administration cannot fool all the people all the time.
It is time we pull out and bring our service women and men home. It is not our business to be policing the world. We have not served our youth, our Elders, and fixed our infrastructure at home. The billions we spend abroad should be spent in our own backyard.
