Should the US send more troops to Iraq?

Today, I saw on the BBC a place where they gather other people's opinions. The question was "Should the US send more troops to Iraq?" i HAD to respond.

this is what i wrote:
God no. The United States, and other countries, need to pull their troops from both Iraq and Afghanistan. While I fully support the troops, I do not support my government. I feel the best way for the Iraqi people to recover is to let them be on their own and settle disputes between themselves. There is no need for us to have a military presence there, especially not now. The conflicts we are seeing are between two groups of people (mainly) the Shiites and the Sunnis, just like the US Civil War, the Union versus the Confederates. The Iraqis cannot fix their problems with everyone else involved.

there was a 600 character limit, so that was all i could post. What do you guys think (about my comment as well as your own views)....


Pull em' out!
