Violence and force has a way of upsetting the givers and receivers... however, military force will go a long way in assuring the combatants and citizens that should they ever wish to make nice, somebody will be guarding the door.

The army wins wars. After the war it's won by the people.

If the people we liberated are already PISSED at us for staying around, can anyone truely think we might do any further good in Iraq? The area has fought for thousands of years over RELIGION. What chance do we have in making them see we are there to help after freeing them from SH?

So we have a snowballs chance in Iraq to win this BATTLE of Hearts and Minds.

No way, No how. Since we won't or can't use the force we have at our disposal it's time to get out while the gettings good.
