Iraq War Funding

Iraq War

I believe we are the Greatest Country in the world. Unfortunately there are people in the world that do not share my view. These people want to cause us harm, which is why we must never show weakness when it comes to our military.

It's debatable whether we should or shouldn't have gone to war with Iraq. However, I believe Sadam Hussein was a brutal dictator and the world is better off without him or his sons. The United States is the world's superpower, and the world is watching and that is why we must win this conflict.

We are currently spending billions of dollars in Iraq. The Prime Minister of Iraq wants us to stay for a number of years until the country is stabilized. We should help, but if we are going to provide security for them then I believe they should pay for it. Iraq is back in business selling oil, which is at record levels. Iraq has the money, they want the security, and therefore I believe we should send them a bill.
