Republican Senator Calls For Withdrawal From Iraq

Chuck Hagel, Vietnam veteran and Republican senator from Nebraska has an article which will appear in the November 26th edition of the Washington Post.

In the article, he states: "There will be no victory or defeat for the United States in Iraq. These terms do not reflect the reality of what is going to happen there. The future of Iraq was always going to be determined by the Iraqis — not the Americans.

The time for more U.S. troops in Iraq has passed. We do not have more troops to send and, even if we did, they would not bring a resolution to Iraq. Militaries are built to fight and win wars, not bind together failing nations. We are once again learning a very hard lesson in foreign affairs: America cannot impose a democracy on any nation — regardless of our noble purpose.

The United States must begin planning for a phased troop withdrawal from Iraq."
