I was dead set against the war, thought it was bait & switch against
the real terrorist problems and that it'd turn into one big ass
recruiting ground for islamic extremists.
What a shock, I guessed right.
However, backing out, or setting a date to back out is absolutely a
huge mistake. If we do that, we paint big ass targets on the armed
forces over there and the terrorists are even further emboldened by
defeating 'the great satan'
Our best option at this point is to continue to throw away a
generation one life at a time until we can get them on their feet,
and walk out. At great human cost both from the US and from the
Iraqi's the jack asses in charge of 'strap a bomb to your dumb ass'
army will alienate everyone, not just us over here on the other side
of the planet.
Of course it's easy for me to think that since I'm not in the armed
forces and I have not siblings/children in the armed forces that are
there. But pulling out, or setting some arbitrary date to pull out
is a huge mistake and does the people who've given their lives to
this so far is a huge mistake.
The only example I have for this is Somalia. Black Hawk Down showed
it to us in all glory, only to have us pull out a little while later
And that was a democrat in the office
