12 Army Captains on “The Real Iraq”

The Washington Post today has a must-read editorial from 12 former Army Captains, all who served in Iraq. They detail an Iraq in shambles with an imminent Civil War. Their conclusion for America – you have two choices: (1) institute a draft; or (2) get out.

Though you need to read the whole thing, I would like to point out this quote: “At the local level, most communities are still controlled by the same autocratic sheiks that ruled under Saddam.”

That we are bringing Freedom and Democracy to Iraq is pure myth. As I’ve repeatedly stated, we are simply enabling a new group of Saddams. That is not worth our blood and money.
