Or...Why Kucinich has received about seven votes so far.
The war in Iraq is over and the occupation has turned into a quagmire. The United States troops have become the targets of criminals and terrorists who are flowing into Iraq for the chance to kill Americans. The cost of the occupation keeps rising: The president has already asked for more than $155 billion to pay for it, and there is no end in sight. U.S. military casualties in Iraq have now exceeded 500...Excuse me genius...but the UN won't even establish an office in this country...and you want them to establish a democratic government?????
We must pay for what we destroyed. We must pay reparations to the families of innocent civilians we killed and injured. But we must work through the United Nations. We must allow the United Nations to facilitate the creation of a democratic government that will be acceptable to the Iraqi people.
