How do we feel about Iraq?

December 16, 2008

obama-petraeus-copy-thumb-361xautoI think we all feel (well most of us anyway) that the invasion in Iraq needs to come to a close.  Now there is a new poll that shows 70% (if you believe in polls) of Americans want the Iraq war to come to a quick close.

70 percent say President-elect Barack Obama should fulfill his campaign promise to withdraw U.S. forces from the country within 16 months, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Who the heck do Bush and Cheney think they are fooling by making public announcements about the goodness of the Iraq war or the credibility of GITMO?  How many ways must the Iraqi people tell us to get out?  GET and OUT are two very simply words.  Why should we stay?  GITMO is a slight on America’s character as a country.  GITMO has got to go.

Come on, we now have Iraq’s people throwing shoes at our president?  I know that shoes are not deadly, but damn, we need a little more respect shown for our country.  It’s funny because it was not harmful, but it is not funny to know that other countries dare to attack our president.  GET OUT is what we need to do.  Let Iraq sink or swim based off of their own capabilities.  Bush’s legacy is not working.  He needs a surge badly.
