Why what? If I criticise you, then I am to blame for the criticism I just made against you. Right? It's called personal accountability.

Since criticisms are opinions, any country that throws them out has to take responsibility for said opinions. It doesn't mean the US did or didn't do anything "wrong" (which is also subjective) it simply means the country criticising felt the US did. Therefore, that country is responsible for it's criticisms. You see?

Does that really matter what the number of soldiers is? No, one soldier makes a difference. The ball has landed in your garden, better pick it up

Hear, hear! I don't want to take the path of somebody with a persecution complex, but it does seem that this is the reality of the situation. Even in this topic it can be seen ("why did you go to Iraq? that was wrong" "because we had to morally, as well as defending our interests" "well then, why don't you go to the rest of the world" "if we did, we'd be sitting hear talking about U.S. imperialism in Africa, too").

And AlexKall, better start making some real arguments, these one liners are only making it about halfway to the garden wall, better work on them biceps .

Finally the truth! American interests come before anyone elses in the world.

Any nation's interests should be the first concern of that nation's government. We, thankfully, have been able to not only serve our own interests, but at the same time liberate two nations from despotic governments.

I think we are about to slide a bit off-topic here..

I think I can recal that the title of this topic was
"Withdraw of Spanish troops in Iraq", let's try to stay on that track from now on, but you are free to start a new topic about the matter you are discussing now.

You are free to mean almost whatever you want, but no country bashing!

Topic: well


I agree that saddam was...well is a but i just hope the american troops will stay till its 100% stable ( 1-2-3 more years) and not leave to other countrys to clean up the mess...

Like right now in "faloudja" (im lazy to go check its spelling) i hope that the marines will take over because there loosing alot of lives...but i hope these... "rebelles" wont pop up again once the US decides to leave...

Yes, it matters unless somehow they were being invaded, 1300 isn't going to make or break them. Now, it's a good excuse .. and looks good and logical, but it isn't very practical - and it's the obvious tactic to use "out" of the debate.

Well now, I thought it was a strategic choice? Make up your mind, lad!

As I said, I've got no problems with them pulling their troops out of Iraq, they could have pulled them because they decided they wanted to send them on a Disney World trip and I wouldn't have cared. I appreciated what they did, and that's that. My problem is with a government bowing to down to terrorists out of fear and to achieve political gain.
