This is what I’m afraid could happen again. Democrats will push for withdrawal, eventually they’ll get their way, and the country will blame them for the resulting chaos and defeat. Dems will argue that it would have happened anyway, but the public won’t buy it. The Republican party, which should get the blame, will get off scot free.
We just can’t accept a solution that means Iraq falls into civil war. We have a moral and legal responsibility not to let that happen. Any resulting blame will rightly fall on our own shoulders if we do.
