What "valid points",? more like Republican talking points. I've heard and seen it all before. It's all just an excuse for the U.S. to dominate the region. It's all about the oil my friend, but then, a man with your background should know that.
I will paste them over since you cannot read them.
"Turkey has already made very clear than any independent Kurdish area is totally out of the question given their large domestic Kurdish populations. Turkey has also moved troops to the border, and I think right after a US pull out, Turkey would move into the Kurdish areas.
Saudi Arabia is not going to sit by while an Iranian dominated Shiite government takes over either. The implications for Iraq becoming an Iranian puppet are to great and will upset the balance of power in the region as Iran would rise to more of a regional hegemon. Saudi Arabia will not sit by idly while this happens.
Iran would get involved as well. They are already involved backing certain militias (for many reasons), but they would certainly attempt to continue the shiite dominance and give that their backing, as they certainly want to rise to more of a regional hegemon.
The end result, I would say, would be that immediately following a pullout, you see Turkey, Iran, and Saudi Arabia all quickly moving in to fill the void and pursue their own interests. As their interests will clash with each other, the war in Iraq will only get more bloody and more chaotic."
All of these facts are well documented in the news and intelligence reports. A pullout is not going to result in Iraq being able to have self-determination.
You could perhaps argue that it was
all about the oil, an argument that I do not buy into, but you cannot argue anymore that it is still
about the oil. If you want to make the claim that it is all about the oil, please offer some evidence or facts to back your claim up and I will be happy to debate it with you, if not then your claim is invalid.
If your answer to every logical post with examples and evidence supporting it is simply "oh a Republican talking point" then a debate it pointless, and we can thank our lucky stars you do not work for the government.
