Thread: Since the surge worked.....

  1. #1

    Default Since the surge worked.....

    When should we start bringing troops home since we won and the Iraqi's have taken over?

    Or, should we keep 160,000 troops there indefinitely to consolidate our win?

    It was a classic trick in the book. American people will keep getting duped because most are ignorant.

    Here is what happened. American military brought extra soldiers to Iraq. At the same time a major deal was brokered with enemy sunnis by giving them lots of money and weapons if they turn on Al Qaeda.

    Before, this was out of the question. Now, basically thousands of fighters are on US side FOR NOW. That is why violence is down. The troops did it? Yeah right! This was just a trick to make it look like American military needs to stay in Iraq in large numbers.

    Its like those advertisements of weight loss pills. "If you diet and exercise, this pill can help you lose weight."

    Sounds like diplomacy to me.

    Isn't it better to talk things out than to use violence?

    When it comes to protecting "our" interests in oil, either diplomacy or violence may be used.

    Well my point was the surge itself played a minor part in the current reduction of violence.

    My second point is that those Sunni fighters Americans are supporting are no saints. They are no different than Bin Laden. Right now they are getting stronger and will turn on Americans again eventually or on the Shiites.

    Are their any "good guys" in your opinion, Big?

    The Sunnis are bad, the Shiites are bad, the Americans are bad... who's left?
