Been discussing withdrawal from Iraq on t r u t h o u t
There are yards and yards of comment and debate to read. Everyone is agreed that it was a dumb idea to invade Iraq, can't imagine what made them do it in the first place, just didn't think, seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time. The question is, should the US/UK just pull out, or should we pull out and ask some other poor sucker to go in and keep the peace for us?
This is my 2p worth
OK so we can't stay 'cos we provoking the insurgents, but Bush won't leave 'cos he went there for the oil; he could cling onto the oilfields and ask the UN please to do the peacekeeping in the bits that he doesn't want but the UN won't do that 'cos they haven't the manpower or the inclination given the way Bush spoke to them before the war, so there isn't a way out so we better stay but we cant stay cos we is provoking ...
