It is time to take a serious look at our involvement there. Everyday there are news reports about more deaths. Every night on the TV are photos of death and destruction. Why are we there? The land is too large to secure all of it. The bad people causing this damage can roam anywhere, and we can't possibly police the whole place. Why are we still there? We occupied this land, which we had to take by force, but it causes us nothing but trouble. Why are we still there? Their government is unstable, and in the process of changing. Why are we still there? Refugees have recently been fleeing by the thousands, driven from their homes. Why are we still there? It will cost billions to rebuild and stabilize, which we can't afford. Why are we still there? There are more than 1000 religious sects. We can't even secure the borders. Why are we still there? And to repeat, everyday we hear of more Americans killed in this dangerous land. It is clear! We must abandon California. .
