Leaving Iraq , Why we can't wait
Submitted by Joseph N. in Florida
Congressman John Murtha , a decorated war veteran who fought bravely in another war of choice said it best. " Iraq is a " Flawed policy wrapped in a lllusion." The time has come for the sake of working families all over America to leave Iraq. Some have argued that leaving Iraq would be a disaster for the USA. I say contining the war perpetuates continuing disaster. Some say we were mislead into this war. I say this is of little matter at this point. The important thing is that we face the reality that pressing issues at home make our presence in Iraq unsustainable. We are spending 1.5 billion dollars a week in Iraq. This sum would cover the cost of rebuilding New Orleans, could be used to ensure the solvency of social security for decades could insure that the social programs that benefit millions of Americans will continue to benefit our children and grandchildren. Every life lost and every dollar spent drains resources from working families everywhere. Its time for this to end
