Leaving Iraq, Honorably
Yesterdays WAPO opinion piece by Sen Chuck Hagel deserves a look.
"There will be no victory or defeat for the United States in Iraq. These terms do not reflect the reality of what is going to happen there. The future of Iraq was always going to be determined by the Iraqis -- not the Americans."
I will agree that we cannot ensure victory militarily, we can ensure defeat by leaving a unstable Iraq. I believe that leaving Iraq unstable will result in a bloodbath that will make the 2 million innocents killed during the fall of Saigon and the killing fields of Cambodia look like a walk in the park. I hope I am wrong.
