Urging Escalation or Pullout

Like this Ohio couple, I too have been known to urge escalation or pullout. If nothing is being accomplished, there's just no use lethargically pounding away if no one's goals are being met, so to speak. Best to either get it over with quickly, or admit to yourselves that it's not going to happen and resign yourselves to cuddling. You can always try again in the morning, right?

The day after burying their son, parents of a fallen Marine urged
President Bush to either send more reinforcements to Iraq or withdraw
U.S. troops altogether.

"We feel you either have to fight this war right or get out," said
Rosemary Palmer, mother of Lance Cpl. Edward Schroeder II.

But why our War President doesn't understand this concept is beyond me. Anything worth doing, is worth doing right. Floundering around aimlessly, whether in Iraq or in your dad's pickup doesn't do anyone any good.

    Pull out, Christine.

    There is nothing we can win in Iraq.

    We can steal their oil for Halliburton by brute force, which is what we're doing right now.

    Saddam allowed for weapons inspectors to come back in before the invasion. Bush warned them to stay out.

    Plame-Wilson told them and everyone else there were no WMD. She/they were outed in retribution.

    Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11. Al Qaeda had bases in the no-fly zone not controlled by Saddam after Gulf War I.

    We need to get out of Iraq right now, and organize reparations through the United Nations and willing muslim nations. But not Saudi Arabia, the only beneficiary of this debacle outside of the Carlyle Group Companies.

    We need to prosecute the Americans responsible for this disaster and its associated crimes against humanity to the fullest extent of the law.
