Rick Noriega on War & Peace

Democratic Senate Challenger


New direction in Iraq

As a Lieutenant Colonel in the National Guard deployed to Afghanistan in 2004, Noriega has been on the front lines and knows our fighting men and women deserve a new direction in Iraq. As your U.S. Senator, he will fight to ensure that none of our veterans are left behind, and that they receive the health care and benefits they have fought for and deserve.

Safely remove 2 brigades per month from Iraq, for 10 months

Q: Would you vote for a bill to remove all troops from Iraq?

A: We all agree that the war must end. Currently the fastest way to make that occur is to elect 60 Senators who believe the same. Unfortunately, such an action on the ground is not physically possible or militarily feasible. With twenty combat brigades in theatre, only two brigades per month can be removed or safely repositioned. The current operational tempo has stretched forces too thin.
