Feingold takes no mess in his opening statement in the Gonzales hearing part 5. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, Russ Feingold has been pulling the Democratic Party, kicking and screaming, to the light. He was the first to say the Domestic Spying Program was wrong. He was the first to call for censuring the President.
Senator Feingold does have an excellent point. We need a plan to bring the troops home. If there’s no plan, then our soldiers are going to stay and stay. As I have said before, Iraq is a problem that President Bush and the neocons created. It is a huge problem. It is my belief that if we pull out now, Saudi Arabia will invade to protect they Sunni brothers. Iran could not allow that to happen. So they will invade to help the Shea. The Kurds in the North may try to take advantage of the chaos and declare themselves an independent nation which Turkey opposes. Turkey would then get involved. Now, this is a huge regional battle that would pull in other players like Syria.
On the other hand what does staying do if we are stabilizing the country?
