  1. One thing I’d add to their words: Iraq doesn’t have enough trained administrators to run the government civil service effectively precisely *because* we invaded without any plan for maintaining security and because we stoked sectarianism from day 1. That directly created the violent circumstances on the ground that have driven almost the entire middle class out of the country or rendered them pawns in the hands of violent militia men of every sectarian and political stripe. We have destroyed Iraq to its very foundations and have no ability to rebuild it. Our duty is to leave NOW, then in 5, 10, or 20 years when there is a modicum of stability, it will be our moral duty to pay Iraq hundreds of billions of dollars in reparations. What do you think the odds of that ever happening are?
