29. I don't argue with that, HOWEVER...
That does not mean I think the insurgents in Iraq ought to be supported by us!

I want them to cease fire, but I *also* want us to get the fuck out!

Saddam was never a threat to us, and after 1991, he was not even a threat to any of his neighbors. Every time he put one brick on top of another at a military site we bombed the shit out of it. Those palaces he would not let us inspect? Clinton bombed those too.

We did not belong here.

We are an outlaw nation for having done this.

We need to stage an immediate, heavily armed withdrawal to the Kuwaiti border, and make it very plain that any resistance to this will be met with overwhelming fire.

We need to take with us any actual collaborators as they wouldn't live a moment without us there.

We need to establish a reparations fund and allow the UN to administer it.

Period.

I am not on the insurgents side. I am on the side of our soldiers. Each and every one of them needs to get out of the hell-hole alive. After that is done, the Iraqi people are the only ones who can decide how they ought to be governed.
