Americans on Board?
In this article that I found about the President's decision to keep our American troops in Iraq, I couldn't help think that maybe the citizens of this country don't really know what they want. Many people are backing down when the job isn't completely done. The article talks about how the popularity of the Bush administration is going down considerably because of the President's inability to project a timetable for bringing home all of our troops. The President tells us as a nation as he has before to "stay the course". This is seen by critics as just another delay, and not a viable answer. Is their anything wrong with finishing what you started? I agree with the President that these things take time. We don't know how long this will take. Even if a projected time were given as the war started, that isn't a definite answer. I don't like the war, but I think that everything would be wasted if we were to just bring home everyone now. The Iraqi troops are learning what to do, and if we stay with things 'til they are done, we will be a lot better off. I think that if troops were to be taken out right now that terrorists would just overrun what we have established and we would be back where we started.
