More reasons pro/against withdrawing from Iraq

Against Withdrawal
# US as a "Hit and Run" driver: The image we will get in the world at large, is of a "hit and run" driver who wounded the victim and left before the victim was strong enough to call for help herself
# Flypaper strategy abandoned: Are we going to fight "over here" now ?
# Cheney hawks: Withdrawing would clear Iraq from Americans, giving them added incentive to nuke Iraq and/or Iran

Pro Withdrawal
#
# US as a non-Imperialist country: Leaving Iraq would help dispell the image we have in the world at large of an Empire building giant drunk with power [but won't it look like we tried and failed to build an oil empire ?]
# Flypaper strategy debunked: If we leave we prove that there is no validity to that theory [but it would show that soldiers got a bullseye painted in their chest for naugh]
# Cheney hawks: Withdrawing would clear Iraq from Americans, giving them added incentive to nuke Iraq and/or Iran
