Should troops be withdrawn from Iraq (immediately) before conditions persist?

  • Yes, the presence of western troops in the middle east is only radicalising the conflict.

    Throughout the 15 years America has occupied the Middle East, there has been no progress, the situation has only escalated. Americans are now involved in a war that has nothing do with them, and it is wasting our money and resources. By executing Saddam, the American soldiers made life drastically worse for the civilians of Iraq.
    By keeping troops in the Iraq, America is only putting Iraq a step back into ever resolving their conflict.

  • We are going broke at lost causes and to feed profiteers..

    We are repeatedly told that we do not have money for health care and social security, yet spend vast amounts on troops in the middle east. Now we don't even care for our veterans as we should. Do our troops there cause must of the terrorism? We are foreign invaders. Why shouldn't they hate us?

  • Do you want to have higher taxes?

    I don't. America is already in a LOT of debt .America owes 18.5 trillion dollars. Is that me or is that a lot of money. Taking our troops back will make the money we owe go down. As a conclusion we should take troops out of Iraq and that is totally stead fast

  • We should ok

    I think that the only way for us to help the Middle East it to let them help them self. Why should we risk the lives of men trying to protect this country by sending them to a countries that does not even want our troops there . Do u agree

  • Enough Already, Seriously

    People's of the Middle have been at war with one another since before Jesus Christ was born (a few thousand years if you are not a religious person). Let them alone. If American and British reporters choose to report about such animals, why is the world so surprised when they are caught and killed ? What did you think would happen ? Tea and crumpets ? Smoke and a pancake ? These reporters are in a foreign land, they don't value life like we do. I fear that this is America rallying the world to make them even more powerful. I don't want America telling our country to step up. Why doesn't America step down ?

  • Enough is enough

    Let them fight it out for their holy war. Why are brits and Americans dying for these fanatics. Offer asylum to those in need. Have no trade with extremism countries. UK needs to balls up and stop being so pc, it's out of control. There are more fanaticism in UK all claiming benefits and sending back to Iraq to make weapons to kill us.

  • Stop the war!

    There is no point in the war. We're obviously making these countries very angry interfering in whats going on in there countries, imagine usa and uk in as much of a mess as there country? Maybe we aught to think about why we are actually sending them to war, is it even war? Maybe we're the real terrorists.

  • Because war has no point to it...

    The war has gone too far at this point we are just protecting them from themselves and teaching them to fight which is just making them turn on us and killing innocent troops. We should just leave them alone and save ourselves from total destruction. We are all dying out there

  • They should be withdrawn before horrible conditions come

    We should let our troops come home because at the moment we have given our whole military to other countries so we have no defense. We have given lives of american troops for no reason. We should give them arms and weaponry, but they have to build their own military. The families they have loved will be horrified. There is a better chance they will die in other countries than in the U.S.

  • Stay and make us proud

    If we leave now, we will make it merely look like a retreat. The soldiers that have already died will not appreciate a retreat after their sacrifices. We must keep on fighting and make all of the dead or wounded soldiers proud. We must honour their deaths and appreciate their sacrifices. REMEMBER THE DEAD!

  • Keep pushing forward

    We fight with an honor we keep, to pull out would be a huge dishonor to the troops that died. We fight to keep these great UNITED states FREE. The only reason we are allowed to do the things we love is because we have people defending our rights in other country's. We are THE LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE OOHRAH

  • Iraq would become 3 separate nations.

    If we left Iraq, Southern Iraq would erupt in a Civil War between Shiite groups. A majority of the Shiites would drive Sunnis out of ethnically mixed areas west to Anbar province. Also, the Kurdish north would solidify its borders and invite a U.S. Troop presence there. It would get ugly.

  • They still need us

    The Iraqi government may be up to speed but that doesn't mean that they are ready to defend themselves. They still require coalition troops to help train their police force and their army . . Maybe within the next few years, but not when they are still in a sort of civil war.

  • Iraq is still recovering from war.

    Probably you saw this before on here but ill say it again. Iraq's government is weak. After all the fighting is going to take some time for its government to comeback and get back to a state in which they can keep the peace efficiently. Granted I don't know the entire details but I do know that there is the potential for massive war to erupt within Iraq (i.E. A civil war) because our troops are just there waiting for the government to get back on its feet

  • The American withdrawal needs to be done in an immediate and orderly fashion.

    If the American withdrawal from Iraq is done poorly or hastily, it could cause severe complications for Iraq. If the Iraqi government fails, then the American expenditure of blood and treasure was in vain.

  • Troops should not be withdrawn from Iraq, because it is important to get the job done once you start it.

    Although this war is dragging on longer then expected and is costing a lot of money, once a job like this is started, it is important to see it to completion. Withdrawing at this point in time would only show the world that the U.S. is weak. This will give our enemies motivation to become stronger. In turn, if we would ever need to return, it would end up costing us more than it would be to follow it through at this point in time.

  • Troops will be in Iraq for a long time.

    It is really too late to withdraw troops from Iraq. The investment the United States has made in the country is now too large to just "quit" Iraq. Besides, the country is not nearly stable enough to leave completely right now--perhaps in a few more years when the Iraqi Army is able to handle it as a well-trained unit. Keep in mind that the U.S. to this day still has troops and bases in places we've been at war with--Germany, Japan, Vietnam, and South Korea, just to name a few. I would venture a guess that Iraq will more than likely become a duty station for staging for other military operations in the area.
