    Re: What should we do about Iraq?

    If we are going to go back into Iraq, one would have to assume that we're actually going to help the situation. That will certainly not be true. We'd either be going to protect "our" oil, or we would be genuinely involved in the war. And as someone earlier mentioned, the war is sectarian, and we have no business taking sides.

    To be fair, we are still in Afghanistan are we not? There's not much evidence to suggest that Obama is a dove on foreign policy.

    I agree, it is time to focus on the USA.

    Keep the hell out.

    We should have left it alone in the first place. The clusterfudge that is going on now was foreseeable.

    Time for a horrible joke.

    If we really want to **** the people of Iraq, we should go with both options, continuously, alternating between the two.

    Re: What should we do about Iraq?

    I don't really know if we should or should not put troops back in Iraq. Or even whether we should support them without deploying troops on the ground.


    I suspect that the only way to really stabilize the region would be to separate it into several "states", with majority Shia, Sunni, or Kurd residents in each - it would appear that any one faction having majority control (as seemingly took place when we were helping) is a bad idea.

    It's kinda like if republicans and democrats were willing to kill and terrorize each other in order to advance their position. The Kurds are the independents, centrists, and such, sitting in their territory shaking their heads. And keeping the democrats and republicans out.

    Terrible analogy I know.

    So far as I can tell, however, thought processes are just DIFFERENT in that country...hell maybe the region.
    They don't have the same priorities that I have, it would seem...

    Better than trying again and failing again.

    We as a people aren't capable of allowing our soldiers to take the actions necessary to stabilize Iraq.

    3 people voted to remain in Iraq.

    46 voted to get out.

    I have not researched the people who voted, but are you saying all 46 that voted "no" are "lefties"?

    Personally, I started out more or less fully behind the war in Iraq back when it started.

    Now I'm more or less on the opposite side.

    Probably means I switched from conservative to liberal, or something...heh.
