    Point is if we pull out our troops now, not only would Iraq desend inta a state of civil war; of which we would b responsible for 'cause we pulled out in the first place; we would leave our troops vulnerable ta attack. In order for our troops ta pull out wit minimal losses, it would haveta b done over a period of years. So pullin' out now would b meaningless, unless u want a high casualty rate. Not only that, we would b looked upon as cowards by, not only the muslim countries, but also the terrorist organisations out there who would then use this as a means ta attack the U.S. again. And then we wouldn' have the support of the other muslim countries in our fight against terrorism 'cause we would have shown them that we don' have the backbone ta stick wit a fight and c it through ta the end. Ppl often don' realise that there are more implecations ta the war that was waged in Iraq than one might perceive. And ta back out now would prove ta have more disastrous consequences than one might think.

    "No impact on the overall import scheme" is a bit decieving. We have, in the last few years imported less oil from Iraq than some other nations but we've also been working through imposed trade sanctions and a legacy of strife with the nation. The Iraqi people set quite a bit of their oil ON FIRE in the first gulf war so that we couldn't get at it. Destruction to the Iraqi infrastructure in the current war also takes a toll on their productivity in just about all sectors of business.

    That said, they still have the 3rd largest known oil reserve in the world and represent the easiest nation in the top 5 to indirectly colonize (unless of course, we actually want to start a war with Canada... #2. We could probably take them too :P ).

    "Despite its vast oil reserves and low costs, production has not recovered since the US-led 2003 invasion of Iraq. Constant looting, insurgent attacks, and sabotage in the oil fields has limited production to around 0.5 gigabarrels per year at best. Political risk is thus the main constraint on Iraqi oil production and likely to remain so in the near future." (Wikipedia, "Oil Reserves")

    The war in Iraq is very much about oil. Directly or indirectly.
