I think they should, it seems pretty obvious to me that we are not wanted there.

If we don't defeat the terrorists operating in Iraq, it will greatly embolden them. Besides, I can't see leaving the people of a nation to their mercy (since they have none). You know Saddam did have documented, terrorist attended events in his nation, and, affiliated with his government.. and, he sent his highest nuclear expert to Niger twice (twice!) and we know the only commodity they trade in.. spent uranium..

Well, since you asked. You make a good point that it is not just U.S. troops in Iraq. Many countries see the need to combat terrorism. I definitely want to see the troops come home, but not until the job is done. Those who think we've been there too long should stop opposing the effort. Saddam was brought down, as well as a good portion of Al Quaida. Troops that are there all have the same message - the war is going well and they want to finish the job. The U.S. military should be commended that they have the guts to stand strong, even when so many of their fellow countrymen refuse to back them.

First you state that I make a good point in that it is not just U.S troops in Iraq, but then you only say that it is the U.S troops that should be commended, what about all the rest that are over there. If you are going to take that line, at the end of the day the troops are only doing what they are told to do, the majority of them do not want to be there. In the UK even the Commander-in-Chief (head of the British Army) has stated that the strength and size of Al Quaida was greatly under-estimated and that not only has it taken longer than was expected to stabalise Iraq, but that there could be no end in sight. Our governments keeping giving deadlines for when the trrops are coming home and then they break them, they should just lay it on the line, tell the truth and admit that they have now idea when it is going to be 'safe' for our boys & girls to come home.

This is one of those questions to which there is no straight right or wrong answer. I would love to see all the troops come home, whichever nation they may be from, but unfortunately, as I see it, our troops were sent in there to do a job. I believe our politicians thought that once Saddam had been deposed, the whole of Iraq would thank the UK and US, and get straight to settling their differences, organising a democratic government, and our troops would be on the next ship home. Our politicians were wrong, (No surprise there, then) which means our troops have to stay there until Iraq has some stability. The big worry is, how long will this take, and how many more of our young soldiers, sailors and airmen wil be killed in the meantime. I really feel for all you who have loved ones in Iraq.
