Had enough Troops and weaponry there to win quite decisively against a large conventional army. So,...there should be more than enough Troops there now to clean-up the fanatical hold-outs and/or terrorists.

Though, not securing borders and permitting free travel from surrounding areas and right with-in STILL basically: "Indian Territory" or Iraq,...surely doesn't permit the best, safest or quickest way for Our Troops GETTING THE JOB DONE.

Freedom and Liberty for Iraqis simply cannot happen over night,...no matter what politico or clique of politicos say differently. It didn't happen here over night, and cannot happen there over night.

We have done our job very well, considering. It is time to get the rest of the world involved. We have enough at home to take care of.

- Maybe the right or a different KIND of troops?
- Enough to prevent Iraq from relapsing or becoming again a terrorist controlled state.
- Reinstitute the Draft?
- MUST have troops of allied and/or "beneficiary" and/or UN and/or NATO nations A S A P!
- With planning being kept in mind about Homeland Security, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, North Korea, Liberia, Columbia and Balkans, etc.
- Maybe better to hugely increase covert/special ops forces?

Don?t send more troops; send teachers, American teachers, History teachers.
Teach the Iraqi?s of how the American people and not dictators run and control how their government is to fulfill the needs of its people. Teach them that it is the American people who are their own government and that it can and should be the Iraqi people who ARE their own government and their destiny.
Show and prove to the Iraqi what Sadam did to their country?s people who disagreed with him.
Show and prove to the Iraqi?s what Democracy has done for its people.
Troop strength should be left pretty much alone but the troops should also be rotated back on a known schedule and replaced one for one until a Democratic Nation of Iraq rises from the ruins of what it came from.

Bring United States Troops home. Don't use U. S. resources to support Iraq.

We need to send in more troops to complete the mission, as we were not allowed to do the first time. We cannot abandon the people of Iraq. We promised them freedom from a despot and we must do everything we can to prove to the world that freedom is the only answer.
