United States is one of, if not the most powerful and elite fighting forces in all of the world. We proved this when we marched into Iraq destroying anything in our way until we obtained what we wanted. In a matter of days, if I may remind you, we did this. At that specific point, we had won the Military war and accomplished our military goals. We set these people free. It is with every passing moment that Iraqis must make the most of this instant which we have provided for them.
A brilliant man once said; "Peace is not something maintained by force, but rather something achieved through UNDERSTANDING".
We have won the Military portion of this war days after we entered this country. Our boys did what they were supposed to do. If Iraqi civilians choose to continue to live like the Barbarians they have demonstrated so far, so let it be. Let it be until until they choose to live together in peace for the better of all Iraqi people and the world. Until then, get out, bring the boys home, make sure they are aware of our appreciation for all their actions and know they did win..They did defeat Saddam....They accomplished everything they were expected to military and did it impressively as well, if I say so myself.
The United States has provided these people with an opportunity they have never seen before, nor thought their children would experience....But, no matter who we are or how strong we are militarily, it is not a logical mission to maintain peace by force. At least Albert Einstein thinks so!
And if you ask a 4 star general, who has devoted his entire life to accomplishment by military tactics, if he wants to quit now, what do you think he will say....
Peace is not maintained by force!!!!!!!
