Leaving Iraq Now is like leaving Germany to Nazis

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Leaving Iraq now would be like handing postwar Germany back to the Nazis, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said in a column published on Sunday, the third anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. "Turning our backs on postwar Iraq today would be the modern equivalent of handing postwar Germany back to the Nazis," he wrote in an essay in The Washington Post. Rumsfeld said "the terrorists" were trying to fuel sectarian tensions to spark a civil war, but they must be "watching with fear" the progress in the country over the past three years. In London, former Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said on Sunday that Iraq is in a civil war and is nearing the point of no return when the sectarian violence will spill over throughout the Middle East. "It is unfortunate that we are in civil war. We are losing each day, as an average, 50 to 60 people throughout the country, if not more. If this is not civil war, then God knows what civil war is," he told BBC television. Rumsfeld's view was that the Iraqi insurgency was failing. "The terrorists seem to recognize that they are losing in Iraq. I believe that history will show that to be the case," he wrote. He said 75 percent of all military operations in Iraq include Iraqi security forces. "Today, some 100 Iraqi army battalions of several hundred troops each are in the fight, and 49 percent control their own battle space," Rumsfeld wrote.

Elsewhere - ironically, Saturday's anti-war protests in Europe were dwarfed by the half-million people who demonstrated in France against proposed labor law reforms, and about 80,000 nationalists in Belgrade mourning former Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic.

I bet Osama bin Laden was really proud of liberal sheeple yesterday, during their spit-on-America, spit-on-the-troops, and bow-to-Islam little march on the 18th - why are you, liberals, so god damn stupid? Don't you understand that in order to sustain our (American) wealth and lifestyle - we HAVE to posses oil resources, among other things.
I'll share a secret with you - most of us don't care about 3rd world countries, I don't want equality with some Muslim America-hating nation, you want to share with them? Go ahead - I perfectly understand that capitalism, unfortunately, is built on exploitation and imperialist military enforcement of the latter - and guess what? I am fine with that.
