If you became president tomorrow.....
Advertisements [?]
What would you do about Iraq?

Would you withdraw immediately? Gradually?

Would you try to persuade other countries to step in?

What if you knew that withdrawing American troops would lead to a bloody civil war?

It seems to me that what I would want to do (withdraw) is complicated by the facts on the ground. I would not want withdrawal to cause the deaths of tens of thousands more Iraqis then have already died.

On the other hand, I would find it very hard to ask a single American soldier to risk his/her life for this "cause."
