Getting Out of Iraq

Ron Paul provides a very sobering analysis today of the issues around our presence in Iraq. You can read it here.

I pray that those in power in this country will wake up to the realities of the situation in Iraq and will have the willingness and backbone to do what is right before its too late. I especially pray that efforts among many in the present administration to widen the conflict into Iran will be thwarted. Should we make the mistake of attacking yet another nation, either directly or using Israel as our proxy, I shudder to think of the consequences, both to our nation and others. Bismark, no dove by any stretch of the imagination, once said that preventive war is like committing suicide to avoid death. I pray we don't move from shooting ourselves in the foot in Iraq to shooting ourselves in the head in Iran.
