An Honorable Withdrawal

The war in Iraq is costing us $1 billion a week. To continue that unpopular
war, the U.S. taxpayers are asked to spend another $4 billion next month,
an amount that surpasses the total contributions of all countries for
Tsunami relief to date. Our preemptive strike on Iraq has undermined our
credibility around the world. Why don't we announce to the world that
for the "greater good", the politics of the war aside, we are
withdrawing from Iraq and converting four weeks of war to tsunami relief.
What an image-builder! Would the terrorists ever recover?
