What would give you this idea? Are the only options to leave immediately or stay forever?So you DO want us to stay there forever.You're the first one I know of who suggested 30 years or forever. Where do you come up with these numbers?Policies and Strategies don't fix crazy. The Middle East isn't ready to live without strife. We can't fix that with policies and strategies and keeping a military presence there for 30+ years isn't "fixing" anything.
All the lives and resources were wasted and now you have 'instability'. You actually prefer this option?Nah. Its better to waste all of our resources, lives, and money to the point where the government goes bankrupt. All for...... "stability".
I can't debate your feelings.I don't care, stay there a decade or a century. The moment we walk out those crazy ****ers are going to tear each other apart. And with the way the ROE is these days, they are going to tear each other apart while we watch.
