Why we should get out of Iraq now

We need to get out of Iraq now, not slowly, not carefully, but now. The idea that everything will fall apart if we leave abruptly or that it will "embolden" the enemy is a nonsensical idea that should simply be ignored.

That idea comes from the brains of people who originally told us we'd be greeted with flowers, treated as liberators. The people who are telling us that we have to stay so that things don't fall apart in the Middle East simply don't know what they're talking about and we all know they don't. They've been wrong at every thing that's come up and the odds are that they're wrong about this one also.

Just give it up, it's a boondoggle, we don't need it, we can't afford it.
Currently, the Defense Department says it is spending about $4.5 billion a month on the conflict in Iraq, or about $100,000 per minute.

That's a lot of money.
