Why fight to install a peaceful, democratic government in Iraq? We should just pull out and let the Iraqis kill each other and curse us for not intervening. After all, we hesitated to intervene in Rwanda, and it only resulted in the loss of 800,000 to a million lives over two months. We should pull out of Iraq just as we should have done during the highly controversial eight-year American Revolution. No, the best wars are fought in a few weeks, leaving loose ends along with dictators who massacre their fellow countrymen.
