    I simply disagree with the concept of throwing good money after bad. It doesn't work.
    I think Iraq was a huge blunder & we need to admit it & not waste any more American lives or dollars over there.

    What bad money? We build a new democracy! That does not happen every decade. What we have accomplished is a huge success!

    If Iraq is still a stable democracy a year after we leave.....I'll say you're right. Right now ....we are still occupiers over there. We are keeping the lid on.

    Not so much. The Iraqi Army and Police are in the lead. We trained them well. We trained them to train themselves. That is a huge success.

    Neither one of us can win or lose this debate until we see what happens after we leave. (Unless you think we should never leave & permanently occupy Iraq?)

    I think we should stay somewhere between 10 and 50 years.
