War in Iraq

Italy
January 29, 2007 7:26am CST
250 persons were killed and an American helicopter was shot down in violent clashes in Iraq yesterday. Massacres are going on, to you U.S. Army should leave Iraq or not? I think that this war was not right, and yet, now that Saddam isn't at power anymore, why U.S. Army are still there?

I agree with you. Bush war policy has failed. I think it's time to turn over a new leaf.

Yup The Bush-administration seems to have gotten a war in order to stay in power and not to do good. We still havn't seen any weapons of mass destruction

Yes, infact. It's a dirty war on oil, petrol, etc. Another "sin" Saddam commited was the decision to use euro currency and not dollars anymore in his payments. But don't think I am a fan of Saddam, I hated him, to me he remains a sanguinary dictator, however he had not mass destruction weapons, and so U.S. attack (for this reason) is unfair.

Because we need to finish what we started, If we back out now then what weapons will they destroy us with next. I don't think we should take any chances take care of the problems there and then send our men home. I support this War, I support Our Troops, they are doing a great Job, to bad people won't really let them take care of it the way it needs to be. Maybe we need to send some Vet's in there to handle the problem....

So you say that what we start we must finish. Even if what we started was a terrible mistake? Me too I try to finish what I start, but if recognize that I'm wrong, I suddenly stop and don't finish what I started.

Well, I hope you don't misunderstand mr: I can understand your husband, he is a soldier and he did his duty, respect to the soldiers, bud U.S. made a big mistake, because Bush and Blair said to the whole world that Saddam had mass destruction weapons, and instead we konw that is was not true and that they attacked Iraq only because of economical reasons. I know that your husband fights to protect his and your country, but in truth Saddam has no resonsabilty on attack to the Twin Towers on 11 September.

i think the amercian forces have to stay there as long as the situation doesnt come under controll , right i dont think it would come down as number of innocent casualties is rasing day by day and it the hole that was dug up by bush just to get his family hold on oil companies in iraq.The only solution i think for this mess is bringing iraq under U.N control and bring all the ethinic comunities on the table and sort out there mess

If we wait that the situation will come under control, American forces will never leave Iraq. I think that the intervention of the U.N. could be a possibilty for peace, who knows....

I don't know what it could happen if U.S. leave Iraq, but I know that U.S. "invasion" is not a good thing for peace. We'll see what it will happen when Obama or Hillary will leave Iraq.

It's important that you say that "killing is definitely WRONG". This is really important. You don't think that U.S. take charge of the oil production in Iraq, but you have to consider that other countries in the world suffer because of a dictator, but U.S. does not intervene. Why??!?

Ok, I agree with you Bhutto. It's vain to remain still in Iraq. Massacres are going on everyday. Saddam does not exist anymore, so I think it's time to come back home.

Do you think if the US leaves that Iraq is going to just stop fighting. This is a war of Iraq vs. Iraq... we are not in there killing people (we are getting caught in the crossfire). If we leave we will be blamed for all the deaths after we leave (we didn't do our job) and if we stay we get blamed for our servicemen getting killed. It most definately a no-win situation.

I don't think in Iraq will be the peace if U.S. leaves, but it is their state, they have their problems, they have to solve them by themselves. Maybe we'll be blamed if "we" will leave Iraq for all the deaths after "we" leave, but it's vain to stay still there.

War is only due to mistake of mind.In any way when people are fighting for some agreement then a singular solution gives problem to other party.So i think that U.S.Army should have to go from Iraq.As i think that army have do all that what can it do.So now there is no need to do more.Now as Saddam is no longer a terror for Iraq.As he had been hanged.So The Iraq government should make a law for themselves and work on the basis of it.

I agree with you. U.S. can't do anything good anymore now. They can only to make worse.

Your judgment is a little hard, but there are some truths, U.S. try to fight terrorism, but it's a wrong way.

I don't know and don't think that they like killing. The problem is that they feel as "policemen" in the world and they try to interfere in governemt affairs of all the countries.

Yes I know that a lot of people are being killed but did you see the news last night people were walking free for the first time in some town in Iraq for the first time now if America along with the Iraq people that can see how this can be done maybe we are on the right road to getting America out a lot quicker now. It is too early to leave Iraq just yet I think that this war was right otherwise they would of killed a lot more people outside of Iraq just because Saddam is not there any more they do need peace in their country and once this is accomplished then other will be thankful to America, and the other country that accomplished this for the benefit of all.

Well Kathy, I understand what you wanna mean, and yet, it isn't possible to invade a country to export "democracy" or "freedom". You have to remember that Iraq was the most secular conntry in the middle east and Saddam was not a religious foundamentalist. I don't think that U.S. and G.B. attacked Iraq to make Iraq women free or to let people walking free at night. As in Afghanistan, I don't think that Western culture troops are fighting to defend women rights or something similar.

US army should be removed from Iraq - US army is hurting Iraq future badly
The rash, ill-advised, and nearly unilateral invasion of Iraq and subsequent U.S. occupation has profoundly damaged the United States relations with other Middle East governments, including those it considers to be allies. U.S. actions have galvanized militants in the region to join the insurrection in Iraq and attack other countries, such as Jordan,considered to be too closely aligned with the United States. The massive number of civilian casualties in Iraq are caused by heavy weapon attacks and flesh-burning compounds, particularly devastating in urban areas. Such attacks greatly damage U.S. credibility and political influence in the Middle East, as well as respect from the international community.Hundreds of thousands have been physically wounded or traumatized by chronic violence and insecurity. The many U.S. bases in Iraq are seen as a long-term threat to the region and the future of Iraq. They should be removed was soon as possible.

Me too I think so. And I am not "antiamerican", I love American culture, etc., but the problem is that there weren't the conditions to start this deadly war.

i think to abandon iraq now, at this stage, would be a biggesr mistake than starting the war in the first place. the bush administration should have been better advised before it stoked this war. if at all an invasion was to be carried out, it should have been properly planned and should have had proper reasoning behind it. the bush family should have tried not to make it sound like the plot of some italian mafioso movie. but what is done is done. now by pulling out troops at once could be catastrophic. the situation is bleak, and in my opinion a single united iraq will never again be peaceful. partition could be the only solution. sad it has to come to this.

I don't think that "what is done is done" and so we can't do anything different. I think that if we recognize our mistakes, we can change our strategy. The reason why U.S. and G.B. attacked Iraq was because of mass destruction weapons Saddam could have (but NOW we know, Saddam had no similar weapons). Now Saddam isn't at power anymore, why going on to remain in Iraq?

I can't agree with you because in U.S. there are a lot of pacifist people who protest against this war. To me US force focus on Iraq because of its economical policy.
