Why Stay In Iraq Bush?

Bush recently commented that pulling out of Iraq would be a terrible mistake. In the article it states that there are 160,000 US troops fighting a war that is growing unpopular to the public everyday. Honestly, we have had our friends, our fathers, our brothers, our cousins shipped off to a war that has been going on for about 3 years! Enough! Bush claims it would be a bad idea to pull out now but maybe he needs to recap on why we should stay! The recent release of "Jarhead" the fictional film about marines' experiences of the war I think really touches base on what our soldiers are really going through. I don't think that it's worth the price of putting our soldiers through all of this!

I could not agree with you more! The Iraq war is a complete waste! A waste of humanity, a waste of money, a waste of time, and the list goes on... I am still trying to figure out why not only our troops are still in Iraq, but why they were ever sent there in the first place? Bush will never admit that he made a stupid decision, and it's too bad, that someone with as little intellect, and judgement as him is running the most powerful country in the World! If nothing else, the billions of dollars being dumped into the "Iraq War Fund" should be used to help the living in this country with an array of needs from healthcare, to education.

I agree that the Iraq war has not been as successful as the public and the government would have liked. Just because it has not been a complete success does not mean that we should pull out all of our troops. By doing so, I believe that the long-term consequences whether it be to us or to the people of Iraq would be worse than the effects of staying there. Imagine the turmoil and warfare that would happen if we were to leave now. Iraq is in shambles and by leaving now we will have done more harm overall than good.
