“i guess iraq is a No win situatian right now. if the troops stay they will be seen more and more as occupiers. if they leave civil war will break out”
Iraq became a no-win situation when we decided to nation-build with our military instead of doing what our military does best.
They should have started, on day one, to shoot looters on the spot. That would have made an enormous difference in the entire relationship.
“Iraq became a no-win situation when we decided to nation-build...”
It is my understanding that after running off the bad guys we helped them build schools, hospitals, infrastruture and arranged for them to hold free elections.
Presently, we are helping them maintain a relatively stable countryside. Relative, for instance, to Los Angeles County and its gangs.
We have a large number of unannounced accomplishments, including the opening of ur military facilities to treat the disproportionate rate of diseases and congenital defects suffered by their children due to Saddam’s toxic environment.
Perhaps you can give us a few examples of the disadvantages of using our military to nation build.
