Debate heats up about the U.S. presence in Iraq, 11/23/05

Should we stay or should we go? The fundamental question about what the United States should do in Iraq is being asked with greater fervor across America and in the nations capital. The Bush administration is arguing that the nation must stay the course to prevent Iraq from becoming an oil-rich haven for terrorists and to keep the country from spiraling into a bloody civil war that could destabilize the Middle East. If they are not stopped, the terrorists will be able to advance their agenda to develop weapons of mass destruction, to destroy Israel, to intimidate Europe, to break our will and blackmail our government into isolation, President Bush said earlier this month at Alaskas Elmendorf Air Force Base. But Bush is fighting waning public confidence in his handling of Iraq and weariness with a war thats claimed more than 2,100 American lives and costs billions of dollars each month.
