Iraq - Why We're Still There

Last week I blogged about a story which spells out one of the reasons we went: to end Saddam's rule and thus end his peace-threatening nuclear ambitions. Now that he's no longer in power and has been prosecuted by his people, we need to be there to make sure that Iraq can successfully make the transition to a stable, peaceful democracy. Iraqis need a government that won't conduct mass murder against its own citizens, and the US (and the rest of the world) need and Iraqi government that will not return to supporting terrorism.
