Once a politician decides to enter into a war, they have no business running the show if they intend on seeing it through. While they certainly have the power to withdraw troops, they need to defer to the Generals if they have any intent on doing the job correctly.Generals are there to fight wars that the political leadership wants to fight, who gives a sh!t what their stance on it is? We aren't paying for wars to keep the generals happy.
I sure hope it's political. Decision to start and and wars is supposed to be a political decision.
I didn't know that and, after reading an article about it, I definitely understand. I just hope that the Iraq parliament knows what they are asking because it is unlikely we will help them out should things start to deteriorate after we withdraw.The Iraq parliment would not grant immunity for the soldiers if they stayed. It's their country.
While it appears that the decision is out of the US's hands, you really should care either way. If Iraq should deteriorate significantly, increased terrorist activity will certainly make people care. Like I said earlier, I hope the Iraqi parliament knows what they are asking and that they are able to stand on their own...It is going to be a mess no matter what we do or when we leave. We have spent more than enough time, money, and lives in Iraq. They can either take it from here or fall on their faces. I honestly don't care either way.
