America has not occupied Iraq. We have liberated it from a tyranical dictator. How that ultimately benefits the US is of some debate for sure.
Either one adheres to the notion that Iraq was a stabilizing/base for terrorism or one does not. History will tell, but I am of the opinion that if Democracy vs Theocracy can take a rehold of the middle east, the US and the entire world will benefit, regardless of the opinion on terrorism. Was our current course of action the best one? Very debatable, Im not convinced it was, but at the time and given the sanctions by the UN, I don't where else we could have started.
Islamic Fascist want the Zionists killed, folowed by (or in conjuction with) the death of the capitalist west (US) It is a very compelling threat now that they (terrorists) have access to nukes. Gives me the creeps, must not be allowed to escalate.
I think what we need to do is offer a timeline for the new Iraqi government to restablish order there with our help. Without progress, we have no exit, and this sucketh.
Don't doubt for one second the resolve of the Islamic Fundamentalists to do us in.
When one is cornered by coiled hissing rattler, no negotiations or debate will save you. The snake must be dealt with.
