    Default Iraq is now on the verge of chaos more than ever

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070408/...TrP8qUa2Jg.3QA


    16 U.S. troops died during the weekend and Sadr has directed his army to kill the American troops.

    It is really pathetic how dumb the Republicans have become. All it takes is 60 Senate votes to end the war

    So if we pull out the war ends?

    No more fighting and killing?

    At least no more than is already happening.

    Maybe we should pull out and let the place completely go to hell.

    Then take a few years regroup and rebuild our army.

    By this time, the civilized countries of the world would have seen enough atrocities in Iraq that they all will be willing to work together to bring stability in the mid east.

    This is what we should have done in the first place.

    Bush rushed in like a cowboy without the proper back up and international support.

    Although this doesn't excuse the extremist that are drilling holes in peoples heads and blowing up mosques and markets full of innocent people.

    There is never going to be any excuse for the extremists. Our mistake was believing that there were enough "non-extremists" in the region willing to take on leadership roles, and exert a peaceful influence.

    I still see only two options for us now. (1) is get out quickly, and watch the country disintegrate into hell on earth, or (2) follow the More Rubble, Less Trouble credo, which means that we would re-engage with overwhelming force, killing as many radicals as possible in mass quantities.

    Neither option is a very good one, so we're in bad shape right now.

    As well as killing many innocent people and causing many more to become radical.

    Exactly. But, the main point is to KILL as many people as possible.

    Again, not a perfect solution.

    Isn't that what Saddam used to do?
