War is ugly

According to Al Jazeera English 's article "Blair 'to announce Iraq pull-out' ", and CNN's article "Reports: UK to begin withdrawing Iraq" troops, Blair is finally going to begin withdraw British troops from Iraq. All I can say is about time. I mean they should have never been sent there in the first place. I think Bush needs to follow suit. I say bring our troops home, enough headaches and heartaches.

Although, ruling under Saddam may have not been the best in the world, I think Iraq's situation has worsened than under Saddam's ruling. In Iraq, there is chaos, kidnappings, religious tensions, and corruptions, it is just plain crazy. All for oil? For location of the Middle East? Solve this through peaceful actions and missions.

The solution is complicated and complex. A wise person once told me, "You can kill a person, but you can't kill the idea." War is not the answer. People die, but ideas live on. The bottom line is we have to negotiate with words, followed by diplomatic actions. We all have the same, basic human needs of survival.

I know I just kind of jumped from one point to another. It is just is frustrating to see a country that used to be the Mecca of Education in the Middle East, to go down in ruins as if they have never had anything great happen in that country. I mean, how long, will wars have to last, and people have to suffer?
