Comparisons For the Cross
Letter to the Editors
Certainly it is questionable for our government to be keeping contract soldiers in Iraq behind our backs (“A Stunning Victory,” by Phyllis Bennis, December 2011). But I nevertheless find Bennis’ arguments disturbing. Assuming it is true that the Iraqi government is “weak and corrupt,” is that a reason for us to leave? If we save money by getting out of Iraq, is she seriously suggesting that our government would spend the money instead on health care for children?
