What do people here think America should do in Iraq?


Should they withdraw immediately and let the Iraqi's sort themselves out or
Should they fight to the bitter end?

And do you think the present situation has been worth all the dead soldiers,civilians and all the money spent? I'd like Americans to comment on this in particular.

For what it's worth I think the US should storm Fallujah (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3710974.stm) kill Zarqawi (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3483089.stm) and smash his gang and then withdraw after the elections in January.

Anybody got any other ideas?

Well Americans make up the vast majority of the coalition so they are the most important!

I cannot see the U.S leaving Iraq anytime soon to be honest. If we pull out now,which is not likely to happen, the whole purpose of going over there would be lost. Some will ask, "Well,what the hell is the purpose?" The original purpose was to get rid of Weapons of Mass Destruction. That apparently is not going to happen.Since everyone claims that there are not any over there. So I guess the main purpose is to develop some form of a stable Democracy in that region of the world.
If we were to pull out of Iraq now, it would be a lost cause. To be honest, unfortuantely for Iraq and the U.S, I don't really see a point in time when we will ever be able to completely pull out of Iraq. It will be sort of a South Korea situation where we will always have troops stationed. :rolleyes:

The troops have to stay there, because if we all pull out now, the country is going to be in really big shit state. But with the overseas forces in there, at least then, there is a bit of security. Everything was kind of fine just after the old regime was ousted, but then you would've had people from the old army, and the Republican Guard, team up with those Saddam loyalists, and that caused problems. Then with al Sader and his mob, they're the ones who have really helped the country go the way it has.

If you have asked this question a month or even a week ago, I would have said that, since the American's created this mess, they should stay there until it is properly sorted out (whatever that means). However, seeing how much misery and terror the Americans forces are creating on regular civilians over the past few weeks, I have to say that immediate withdrawal is the best solution. They are the main part of the problem, not the solution. They should transfer control to a regiional force (From Saudi Arabia, Kuwait?, Syria, etc) to protect the civilians if they can. Until then though, the UN should declare Baghdad and the major cities "no-fly zones" to protect the civilians from brutal aerial bombings. Just like similar sanctions were imposed on Saddam when he tried to supress uprising in the north and south parts of Iraq.
