The War in Iraq should have ended yesterday! It's time for us to bring our troops home. So far, we have lost 4,000 of our brave men and women. Families have been broken because of the Iraq war. Our honorable soldiers who have returned home, many are believed to be over-stressed and/or suicidal. The estimate cost of the war in Iraq alone will surpass $600 billion mark this year. We're spending $10 to $12 billion a month on the War; imagine what we can do with that kind of money in fixing our schools, our health care system, or our economy!
I support a realistic plan of immediate phased withdrawal of our troops from Iraq. I oppose building a permanent base in Iraq.
