Steven Sauerberg on War & Peace

Republican Challenger


Critical to keep U.S. troops in Iraq to help Iraqis

Sauerberg called for keeping American troops in Iraq. Sauerberg said it was a critical time that called for keeping U.S. troops there to help Iraqis. The United States can end up strengthening its national security and making life better for Iraqis, he said. "We can't afford to leave," Sauerberg said.

Durbin argued the United States can't afford to keep spending $10 billion to $15 billion a month, along with soldiers' lives, to rebuild Iraq. He called for a "systematic, sensible withdrawal."

No timeline for withdrawal in Iraq

Telling our enemies when we will leave Iraq is the surest road to defeat, which will increase the chaos in the Middle East and give terrorists an open haven in which to train and plan more attacks against us in America.
