    Unfortunely, I believe this to be near the truth.

    We're a bunch of thieving skanks quite frankly.

    Well we can always hope ;)

    Honestly though - I am unfortunately of the beleif that once we've raped the place of any natural resource that we need, or anything else, we will pull out and find somewhere else to attack.

    Yup I agree with this. I am left wondering why this country (and the yanks) actually went to war with Iraq.

    We leave, Civil War ensues, more death.

    We have to stay and finish the job now, or it'll just get worse.

    This is how I see it.

    No matter the validity of the initial invasion, it would certainly be better to actually see the job through and try and install some stability into the country rather than just scarper surely? I think that it is naive to think otherwise.

    There is already a civil war in Iraq, they are fighting with each other, not us. It wont stop if the English (sic) go home.

    I agree with seeing things through, I guess that in truth my cynicism (sp?) relates mainly to the initial invasion but I do still think that aside from trying to install 'stability' to a country where anarchy is an everyday event, our government and that of the US are also trying to protect potential assets.

    As Tru says, there was Civil war before we came and there will be civil war when we leave. All the meanwhile more of our troops will lose their lives. I know thats a sad fact of war, before anyone mentions it, but hey - we're not supposed to be at war anymore ;)

    How dastardly, just one step ahead of the 'Forces of Light and Righteousness'. The only way they can be stopped is by pre-emptive strikes on countries that may, just may, harbour them. Ohh and any natural resources to help with the continuing war effort will, of course, be a bonus. Oh and North Korea looks a little bit scary and may give us a thick lip...

    The question:


    My answer:

    If they aren't out by the next General Election, they will be soon after. I doubt Labour have got anything left in them to win another term in office, unless the Conservatives manage to self-destruct again....which is always a possibility.

    Options for getting out before the GE - as soon as there's even the slightest chance that the country will remain stable for the 39.06 seconds required to drop everything and beat a hast retreat, they'll take it.
