Proposition Iraq

posted by The Sailor @ 6:27 PM Permalink

Bush has said "We'll leave Iraq if asked."

Of course he also said we invaded Iraq because they harbored terrorists that perpetrated 9/11. When that proved false he said we invaded Iraq because they had Weapons of Mass Destruction. And then when that was no longer operative he said we invaded Iraq to overthrow Saddam Hussein and to establish democracy. But through it all he said we'd leave when the Iraqis wanted us to.

So here's an idea: Let's ask. Let's ask the Iraqis whether they want us there. Let the Iraqi people vote on it. It's their country, they didn't have anything to do with 9/11, they didn't have Weapons of Mass Destruction, they no longer have Saddam Hussein. What they do have is a constitution, and they do have elections.

So screw the talk about 'validating the al Qaeda strategy', 'pulling out would cause another 9/11', and the war funding debate.

Just hold Bush to his word and ask the Iraqis, all of the Iraqis, and let them vote on whether the US should leave.
