No, I think our country should be worrying about OUR country not what's going on in other countries! So many of our men and women are being killed and we shouldnt even be over there! Ive heard a lot of soldiers say that the people over in Iraq dont even WANT us there!

I am agree with Droddy on this one. But if you read my response to why we are in Iraq you will know why I agree with this. I also must add my ex husband is in Iraq right now, and he has told me alot of people don't want them there. Some are grateful, and mainly it being people who don't have the means to carry arms. He said the saddest part of it all is the Children. He has talk to many of them. They tell him, that they wish the fighting would stop, they just want to go to school and learn. They want books and a better life. I don't feel it is American's responsibilty though it is heart breaking to make this happen. The people in Iraq, should stand up for themselves, and if they want freedom, they should go to war themselves for it. We shouldn't be in the middle of it. But now we are. We went and turned the country upside down. Though some of it is good, alot of it is very bad. When America was ruled by England. Americans were unhappy, though they didn't have the money that England had, they worked together to fight the invasion of England and won our independence for dicatorship or being ruled by a King or Queen. If Americans could do it, so can other people of other countries. If they are tired of how they are forced to live, THEY need to do something about it not us.

yes i definitely feel Americans should be in Iraq.Being a responsible country u should clear the mess u have created over there,moreever withdrawing from iraq at this stage is a folly which would result in a loss of face.Watever might have been Bushs intent the American troops are doing a great job over there risking their life for the sake of one person(the commander-in chief) to whom they have sweared loyalty.I personally feel this is a sensitive phase in iraq due to the transition going on from being ruled by a Dictator to Self rule.i wish to make it clear that i support the American troops deployment in Iraq but NOT Bush who has dragged America into this quagmire.

I think that if the UN don't believe that there is a good enough reason for anyone to be there than no one should be there. The US are just protecting their oil over there and they have no business trying to take over the running of the country just so they can keep making lots of money.
