This is from a friend of mine that occasionally publishes what she calls a Pamphlet:
The Bush Administration has never given a clear statement of what its goals are in Iraq. As American citizens, however, we can largely agree that what we would most like to see now is peace and stability in that country. Unfortunately, our military campaign in Iraq is not achieving that goal. On the contrary, the insurgents are increasingly taking the offensive, conducting large-scale attacks against Iraqi and American targets. 2005 polls indicate that Iraqi public support for the insurgents is increasing.
Our best bet for promoting peace in Iraq is to withdraw our troops immediately. We must not by fooled by President Bush when he tells us that peace will come if we just “stay the course.” What the President has done is akin to lining up his troops in Minnesota, ordering them to march westward, and telling them not to stop until they reach New York. People say that to support the troops we have to respect their mission. They’re marching so quickly and efficiently, carrying such heavy loads, and cleaning up the road as they march along. It is of utmost importance that they reach New York and, the President insists, to stop them now would be to tell them that all their effort and sacrifice had been wasted. They don’t deserve such disrespect.
