Committing Murder

It's Sunday Morning and I'm flipping among news programs where the pundits are debating the Iraq situation. They're talking about timelines.
Setting a timeline would be unconscionable.
Any timeline means we accept the fact that US policy in Iraq has failed. Leaving our troops who are by definition, provocateurs of violence, in Iraq until we meet some arbitrary date means our country will be inciting more violence with no goal in mind.

Again, to my mind, there was no excuse for us to go into Iraq in the first place.
To stay until some randomly chosen date has passed = murder of Iraqis, the allied forces that were lured there by our criminal policies and Americans.

Here's the problem, as I see it. Were the US to immediately and totally withdraw, Saudi Arabia would likely intervene to protect the Sunnis, as would Iran to protect the Shia, resulting in a regional war. How can we get out and avoid this outcome?

hey, TC--
according to everything I've been reading, hearing on radio and tv, we can't. the outcome you foresee is inevitable. whether it happens sooner rather than later is the only choice.

I don't KNOW that that's true--
it's just that people who are likely better informed than I am see that outcome as unavoidable.

meanwhile--even the middle-of-the-road Iraqi's want us out. and, it's their country.
