We Must Withdraw From Iraq
The Bush Administration has had more than enough time to come up with some sort of coherent strategy in Iraq. It remains as clueless as ever. The notion that 20,000 more troops will save the day even as our allies diminish the number of their soldiers stationed in Iraq is irrational.
How many of us even know who our allies and who our enemies are? Do we support the Sunnis or the Shiites? Does it depend on the day?
There is no reason for the U.S. to maintain an occupation force in Iraq. It is immoral to send soldiers there to die or be permanently maimed. Military families have already paid an obscene price for this abomination. We must begin to withdraw immediately.
Withdrawal of all ground forces does not mean that the U.S. should allow Iran, al Qaeda and other enemies to take control of Iraq. The Bush Administration and Congress must find ways to protect U.S. interests in Iraq - and the region generally - without resorting to a failed and endless occupation.
