Even many of those who opposed the war in Iraq now claim we must "stay the course" because if we leave "there will be civil war". I don't buy it. That sounds like an excuse, not like reality.

I would hope we don't just up and leave. I mean, we did start the fucking thing. We owe these people something. Maybe I put too much faith in my fellow Americans, but I believe most, even those who support the war, would like to see the Chimp put out a realistic endgame strategy in the near future. Do I believe he will? No.
Regardless of how it goes, a lot more innocent Iraqis are gonna die before it's settled.
