Here's the problem. The Iraqi "constitution" was imposed upon the Iraqis by Bush. It's not democratic. It's Sharia law. Women will continue to be subjugated.
It is creating a civil war at this time.
The more we remain in that conquered country, the more lives will be taken.
The only "mission" is to create work for Haliburton, oil contracts for Bush's cronies, build military bases to invade other Mid-east countries and to help the nut in the White House "wag the dog" in his quest for power.
It is irrevelevant the amount of U.S. troops in that country. Every one presents a threat to any semblance of democracy there.
There are those who are under the delusion that Iraqis will become an extension of the U.S. military. The better they are trained, the more potential that they will use their military prowess against U.S. forces.
It's a lose-lose situation.
