No immediate withdrawal from Iraq

I can't think of anything worse than cut-and-run Q: Your solution in Iraq is a staged withdrawal. How is this not cutting-and-running?

RADNOFSKY: We are destabilizing Iraq by our presence. The NIE indicates as such, and British generals indicate as such. By withdrawing, we will allow international immediate withdrawal from Iraq. As far as I can tell, we still do have a role there.

HUTCHISON: I can't think of anything worse than America cutting-and-running because times are tough. I think it would hurt our troops. We need to support them, and make sure they have the cover they need. We must never cut-and-run. That would shred the credibility of America. The NIE says we are destabilizing the al-Qaeda leadership. The worst thing we could do is appear to leave and give terrorists a victory.

Iraq war should not be funded as an emergency

RADNOFSKY: My opponent's idea for partition is not adequate. First, the prime minister of Iraq has said that partitioning will increase terrorism in Iraq. Secondly, the history of partitioning in this part of the world is unsuccessful.

HUTCHISON: It is clear it is not going well in Iraq, and we should come up with ideas. One of the things we should put on the table as an option is semi-autonomous regions. This is provided for in the constitution of Iraq, and the parliament of Iraq has set out a process. The Sunnis reject that idea, because they're worried about not having the oil revenue, but that can be handled as well.

JAMESON: I am upset for the way the Iraq war is funded. It is inappropriate to fund a war on a constant emergency basis, because Congressmen can add in extra appropriations and pork barrel spending that they know will get passed.

Withdraw from Iraq with specific dates & goals

Q: Should the United States withdraw its troops from Iraq?

A: Yes.

Q: d) Should the United States send more troops to Iraq?

A: Yes. [In addition], We need a timeline with specific goals and dates towards an exit from Iraq. Unless we are planning on annexing Iraq as a state we must exit ASAP or be legitimately labeled as imperialists. If we need to send more troops to finish the task then lets do so now..
