A Declaration of (Semi-Autonomous) Independence (Sort Of)
November 9, 2006
"The firing of Rumsfeld is a harbinger. The President stood before the American people less than two weeks ago and assured us that the Secretary of Defense would be there when he left office. How can we now believe him when he says that he is committed to further efforts to bring about a tolerable conclusion to our mission in Iraq?... If he has already decided to leave Iraq short of any outcome that could be considered advantageous to American interests, then every day that passes, every life lost, is a wasted effort in a losing cause and he should bring our people home now. "
Let’s just end this debacled War in Iraq today. The War was unjustified in the first place, the people of Iraq are rebelling against our occupation. Therefore in my eyes there is absolutely ZERO reasons for a single USA troop to remain in the free and sovereign country of Iraq.
Saddam Hussein is gone. That is a positive note to end this war.
And what next? Take the $90 Billion that would have been spent in Iraq just next year alone put it into Social Security, and creating a National Healthcare Program not just for seniors, but for all Americans (Hint at the future agenda of Checks & Balances).
