With increasing evidence that Iraq is moving towards anarchy and civil war, should we send in more troops and invest more money? Someone in Al Qaida once said the way they would win the war was to force America to spend something like $400 billion/year. I don't know if they were right, but certainly our spending isn't adequate to introduce people to the benefits of democracy. For instance, today, we have this in Baghdad: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060321/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq The mess in Iraq was directly caused by an American invasion based on misinformation (or possibly lies). We are responsible. I think instead of sending in hundreds of thousands of more troops, the US should fund an international effort to restore order and bring peace. I'm sure the neocons, taking responsibility for the mess in Iraq, would support a modest tax increase to help the Iraqi people.
