Leaving Baghdad...Will Not Bring Us Peace
No matter what the anti-war factions in this country say, the war in Iraq is only a small part of the war on terror. We are in a global war against the militant Muslims who want the world to be a Muslim theocracy and will do anything to stop democracy from spreading.
Right now we are being attacked by the Islamo-fascists in Iraq on a regular basis because we are the closest target. If we leave Iraq, we won't be attacked on a daily basis, but we will be attacked and the wackos will have a cozy little base from which to plan their mischief. There will be attacks on our embassies, our ships, and the hotels, bars and restaurants where Americans congregate. There will be attacks in the United States. The terrorists will merely have more time to dream up more 9/11's.
Frankly, I would much rather keep the terrorists occupied and on the defensive in Iraq. If we leave, they will merely have more time to plan their attacks elsewhere.
Leaving Iraq will not bring us peace, and you can take that to the bank.
