The Pointless War

Recently, in a press release, U.S. President Bush and his Top Generals admitted their mistake in making policies in Iraq. Much to the world’s surprise, he said his mistake was that he had insufficient numbers of troops in Iraq. Therefore, his intentions were to deploy more troops in Iraq, one reason among the others was to fight the existing sectarianism.

U.S. initial reason in holding military operations in Iraq was due to the assumed existence of weapons of mass destruction. The focus has undoubtedly changed since then, leaving the world nonplussed (?). This brings the U.S. in a problematic position of whether it must maintain its ‘obligation’ to enforce security in Iraq or not. I (Sani) think that since the justification of the intervention itself was not even passed through a U.N resolution, this ‘obligation’ in the first place did not exist. It is to say that the U.S. must withdraw from Iraq as soon as possible.

This is why I see a harsh form of action is needed. We would like to propose to the House that the U.S. troops shall be pulled out of Iraq. We don’t agree with Bush’s definition of mistake. We believe that since firsthand, the strategy that the U.S. took in breaching the non-intervention policy was wrong, and that mistake has now crossed the border definition of acceptance: they are there for no more particular reason, even more a reason for intervention.

There is a reason why people uphold diplomacy all around the world, because negotiation is always, in many ways, the way to go compared to confrontation. We have witnessed many people died because of war, not only soldiers, but civilians, women and children died because of war. This is exactly what happened in Iraq. Thousands of people died, families were torn apart. These are people who really pay the cost, not that politicians sitting in the Oval Room for nothing. That is exactly the reason why team government (?) is here today, because we simply fail to see any reason since the U.S. deployment triggered the war, to start the long list of casualties. Saddam Hussein was perhaps in many ways a criminal to his society, but even after his death sentence, the U.S. is still there. Saddam might have been a terror, but a terror for who? The world? Never had it been proved that he actually had WMDs.

Now the U.S. is fighting against sectarianism in Iraq, but isn’t that an internal problem? It is something that the newly appointed Iraqi government should handle well. American controversial justification to enter Iraq was a global threat, and even though that takes process through the U.N. Security Council (nevertheless the U.S. went barging in), sectarianism is only a threat to each other. That’s a whole different situation. Again, since there is no more reason to justify its existence, U.S. troops should be pulled out of Iraq. Let Iraqis rebuild their country, something that will never happen if the U.S. is still there. Over 100.000 Iraqi casualties, and over 5.000 US soldiers dead, all for a vague reason. We simply don’t want to add to the list, because we’re paying to much, for a fruit we can never eat.
