A story about this — 5 years ago
“Every people should be left free to determine its own policy, its own way of development, unhindered, unthreatened, unafraid, the little along with the great and powerful… These are American principles.”
The occupation of Iraq has been an exercise in futility. The current administration disregarded the people, culture, religion, politics, and economics already in place when they decided to effect a regime change in this Middle Eastern country; failed to get support from either countries in the region or our current allies; and expressed reasons for this regime change that had no basis in reality. Meddling in Iraq’s government has only brought us grief and created a safe haven for terrorists. We have to remedy this situation as soon as possible by leaving Iraq to govern and defend Iraq by itself.
