Preventing the Next Killing Fields

Fire of Liberty

William Shawcross has a good piece in the Sunday Times
that rightly points out that the world will indeed witness a massive bloodbath in Iraq that will pale in comparison the post-war Vietnam if President Bush acquiesces to the cries of retreat. I just hope some of the politicians take note of Shawcross advice before the push forward a policy that leaves the lives of millions on the lurch for pure political expediency. Furthermore, the soldiers who have died and are currently in Iraq deserve to remembered as valiant warriors who achieved greatness rather than having a "what if?" feeling like the soldiers who served in Vietnam have today.
