I believe it was one of the generals in the area that suggested something
He said we should have coalition soldiers only on the border to keep out the
Iranians, Syrians, external Al Qaeda, etc.
Then let the Iraqi govt sink or swim with their army and police.
I thought it has promise.
At least our people wouldn't be at so much risk out on the streets in close
quarters with the terrorists.
I think we'll have to try it... might cause a revolution in the younger set
though, because they're a lot better networked than we were in the 60's...
Can't, for 2 reasons... the guys that I talk to are either gung ho to go back,
or not re-upping because they don't want to go back...
A related problem IMO is that to keep up the enlistment quota, they've dropped
the entry requirements and are paying big bucks to get fresh meat... I don't
think the money will hold out long after the next election..
I'd love to just pull out, but don't think we can... all we've done is cause a
huge infrastructure problem... IMO, the time to pull out would have been when
they captured Saddam...
Also, they should have given the U.N. (Useless Noise) a predetermined time after
the real "war" was over to get in and replace our troops..
We've gotten screwed every time we've tried to be a "peace keeping" force... let
the UN mess it up instead...
I really, really don't want my kid in Iraq, but he'll rotate there if it keeps
up much longer... but I can't judge what a whole country should do by that...
IMO, we started the damn thing, we need to figure a way to get it to a point
where we can get the hell out without the kind of blood bath of civilians that
we allowed in Nam.. YMWV
Concerning the Biblical legality of war:
1) Liberals got rid of the draft, now they're paying for it with lives lost
and manpower stressed beyond limits.
2) What choice do we have, if we remain in Iraq, since we don't have enough
troops, thanks to the Liberals?
3)To pull out now, without getting the Iraqi government kick-started and in
control is opening the country up for a hostile takeover by ????? and the
liberal whine of how "lives have been wasted" over there will really become
true. But I do believe we need to get the Iraqi government, police and
military in place and doing their jobs ASAP.
Then go get Osama.
