RE: Withdrawl of U.S. troops in Iraq
Going to war with Iraq was an error, there is no doubt that this was something that went wrong. However, if you pull out of a war quickly you leave a country on it's back, and Iraq will spiral out of control and there would be a civil war. You would then expect some form of dictator to come along and make the situation worse (as has happened many times in history). I just can't see a reason why we can leave so many millions of Iraq's citizens to fend for themselves.

Do you?  I had no idea Portugal was a communist state at any point in time.

The Portuguese revolution (1974) was urged by communists who manipulated the army into their political games. We didn't turn into a communist country because of very few families who stood up against the whole "freedom yada yada". For example, after '74, most private successful companies were nationalized and all the others were forced with profit limits etc. Also, all private property was due to be nationalized if many hadn't raised themselves against the state... My family's lands were "analyzed" to see if they were to be nationalized. Good thing our family never liked communists and honorably welcomed those gentlemen with guns.
The world is yours

Anyone seen Flight 93? Quite a good movie about the fourth hijacked plane that was supposedly meant to hit where the President was.

Well I didn't give much detail to my views. There'd have to be many circumstances in which we leave Iraq. Of course we shouldn't leave the country as is with no set government, but I think that the Iraqi people should decide what type of government they have. And by all means, if they want a communist government (Or anything of the sort) let them have it.
