It's better to be making no progress at all than backpeddling on all the progress that has been made.

Well since there is NO chance of Sadam regained control I think we are safe.

True, but letting a bunch of crazy ass fanatic regimes taking over isn't the way to go either.

Didn't this all start because of some sand cricket named Bin Ladin? I still don't understand why the U.S. went from the Bin Ladin man hunt to the Iraq thing. Anyhoo, we seem to be good at finding enemys that bog us down in a "no win" situation.

Here's a good article with a little perspective, for all you who might not have a clue about the bigger picture in the middle east....

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/art...he_rescue.html

If your too lazy to read here's a small quote from the article....


"The basic fact is that the conflict in Iraq, from the very beginning, has been stoked by Syria and Iran. These dictatorial regimes are stoking the conflict because the success of the American mission in Iraq is an obvious threat to their very existence. They can't afford the example of a free nation in the region, nor can they afford the example of a successful exertion of American power on their doorsteps.

That's why all the debate over whether Iraq is in a "civil war" is beside the point. Calling Iraq a "civil war" has the effect of narrowing our focus, making the conflict look like a purely internal fight between Iraqi factions. But the real picture is regional. The civil strife in Iraq is just the instrument of a regional fight for dominance between Iran and the United States."

One of my favorite sources for political information....
