71. How many names do we want to see in a future Iraq War Memorial?
Edited on Sun Jan-14-07 01:31 AM by IndianaGreen
Listen to what you are saying:

Just because the majority of Iraqi's want us to leave does not mean that it is what is best for them. Yes, I am saying it is not what is best for them.

Our invasion of Iraq was partly prompted by the belief that we knew what was best for Iraq. Our staying in Iraq is also prompted by this same version of the "white man's burden."

What our present situation in Iraq boils down to is a very simple question:

How many names do we want to see in a future Iraq War Memorial?

Nothing we do can prevent our ultimate and inevitable defeat in Iraq. There are only two remaining questions. How humiliating will America's defeat be and, how many people will die in the interval?

There is another thing to consider, if we leave now, we can leave with some semblance of order. If we leave later, we may have to leave in a chaotic fashion.
