79. what if we left and those evil mooslims started murdering innocent kittens?
It could happen. What would be our contingency plan for that?

and what if we left and then realized we had left the car keys on the dresser in the Green Zone? It could happen. What would be our contingency plan?

the violence in Iraq WILL get worse, whether we stay or leave. We are part of the problem, not part of the solution. NOTHING we are doing now is reducing violence at all. We are training Shia as expensively as our outsourced military contractors can. All we are doing is ensuring that the inevitable bloodbath will be more brutal.
