I want this war to end so very much, but I can't get past the following question. Didn't we invade Iraq, remove the government, close down the army, and basically create the conditions for civil war? How can we leave after doing this? Don't we have a huge moral responsibility to do whatever we must to help resolve it?

Like Tito, Saddam kept 3 different peoples who didn't like each other under one forced government, run with a strong hand. Why do we continue to force this and why not let the Sunnis, Shites and Kurds have their own areas with in "Iraq"?
