If the United States pulls its troops out of Iraq too soon, a bloody civil war will errupt in that country. The world will once again witness yet another religiously motivated genocide.

The majority of Iraqis are working towards building a free and democratic Iraq. I've been to Baghdad. The positive changes taking place in that city are not reflected in the daily news reports. I've actually walked on street patrols with the new Iraqi Army. I've manned a checkpoint with the new Iraqi Police. These people are risking their lives for an idea planted by our own country's founders! How long did we fight the British for our freedom?

While I understand Ms. Sheehan's loss, her son volunteered to join the Army. He wasn't drafted. If she didn't want to put her son in harms way, then she should have given her son other options (i.e. like helping him pay for college). I have a son and I'm paying every cent of his college education.

And finally, yes, the war was about O-I-L. If feeds, houses, employs and moves our modern world.
OIL is the world's most important natural resource!!! Iraq sits on the 2nd largest OIL reserve in the world.

Until Americans, Europeans and Asians are willing to change their consumption driven lifestyles and cultures, the reality of having troops in the Middle East will remain a part of today's
headlines.

The next time you need to go to the supermarket...try walking or riding a bike! Hey, here's another idea...tell your local leaders you want your community to enact a mandatory, curbside recycling program. Instead of throwing out those empty plastic bottles of water...they could be reused over again and again.
