Some how I think this is wrong. However America is leading the losing fight in Iraq and Afgan I dont see why they needed us. All I can say is it is wrong but we are not the only countries in these countries fighting the dutch army is there to. There is more Americans though.

There is (Or was) a compilation of forces from different country's in Iraq i think. Like Italy and Australia, I don't know about that now. Personally i think that we should not even be in Iraq, it was not an even war to start with, the might of America verses a smaller unprofessional I'll equipped force. With help of course, but after all, did we not head there on the pretext that there were 'Weapons of mass destruction' currently in Iraq, anyone see them?

With Afgan, its fighting militant terrorist organizations, same with Iraq, as such, Rocket attacks, road side bombs, and hit and run attacks happen all the time. I don't think i can do two days watching the national news in the UK without reports of a British soldiers death.

The war may be against 'Extremist terrorists' but it is an unjust war, unfair and having a devastating effect on the people. I think both countries should both pull out and leave well enough alone. This is impossible though, due to the reason the UK/American and allied forces are helping the official government against the militants. Likewise in Iraq, we will continue to lose life every day for a long long time. It will probably end up like northern Ireland and the fighting and occupation lasted a good 25 years.

I'm not trying to be against my country here, but i don't support them one bit ^^

I think, that this wouldn´t improve the situation one bit, because at the moment the political structures both in Iraq as well as in Afghanistan are far too weak and extremists would seize power instantly, as they are doing in Iraq right now. The Taliban forces in Afghanistan are also gaining more and more power, as people lost their belief in the US Army (after Abu Ghraib and some other incidents) and the war lords only try to secure their wealth instead of helping their people.
I see no hope for both countries in the next 20 years or so, as extremists from many other countries stream there to blow themselves up - not only killing soldiers, but all kinds of people.
It simply makes me sad.

My whole take on the war is... it's so damn unfortunate for the American/British people...
but it has to be done. It is unfortunate that we are losing soldiers, but that is truth of war.
There's no getting around it. Many people compare this to Vietnam, and rightfully so.
But let's not forget though that when america pulled out of Vietnam several hundreds of thousands of american allies died due to their involvement with the war effort. They were sent off to prison camps to be tortured, starve and killed. Are we to make that fallacy again?

We are not policing the world, we are fighting for it.

No one is fighting for "these" people, more than 1/2 of "these" people don't even want us there. But things are changing over there, and for the better.

unfortunately America and Britain is taking the blunt of the hit. But we
do have the means to fulfill the task...
it's the whether we have the dedication to see it done complete.

Personally I don't support the war in Iraq, but I do understand the need for it.
Whatever secret agenda Bush or Government has in plan... that's on them.
But the truth is Iraq is a hot bed for terrorist activity.

to kill a weed you have to pull it out by its root.

It was a metaphor meaning to solve a problem you have to get rid of the source.

For the time being we are there so we might as well fix the problem we started, if we left now we would leave a vacuum in which more killing and fighting will take place as one group or another struggles to gain power over that nation. So we might as well stay until the government is stable enough to handle a majority if not all the internal fighting between sects. But either way there being gradual progress made in both nations but it is just going to take a while, you can't expect a total change in sects that have had years of open war fare over night let alone a fledgling government to handle it all perfectly.

I was being sarcastic. *cough* *lol* Playing with words, you know.

And actually think it would be quite stupid to leave Iraq/Afghanistan right now, too, as everything would turn from chaos into complete chaos *points upwards to old post*

My bro in law ( who is a Gunny over in Iraq right now ) said they
MIGHT have about 45%-50% Baghdad stabilized... but that other
50%... and the rest of Iraq.

sigh

This war is going to be long, and I truly hope France isn't just
blowing smoke up our ass saying they're going to join the fray.
