Experts say they still see Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia as largely independent of Al Qaeda’s hub in Pakistan but that they believe the fighting in Iraq will produce future Qaeda leaders.This is just what many of us were saying before and during the invasion and occupation of Iraq. And what will happen when we are no longer "fighting them over there," as is inevitable, whether we leave today or ten years from now? Doesn't it seem reasonable that we should get out now before breeding even more of the worst terrorists ever?
“The jihadis returning from Iraq are far more capable than the mujahedeen who fought the Soviets ever were,” said Robert Richer, who was associate director of operations in 2004 and 2005 for the C.I.A. “They have been fighting the best military in the world, with the best technology and tactics.”
Getting out of Iraq now = fewer U.S. soldiers killed + fewer al Qaeda terrorists trained in fighting U.S. soldiers.
Staying in Iraq = more dead + more terrorists.
Do the math!
