ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' opinion on the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Here, they say that they are early opponents of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Nonetheless, once American forces were committed, they hoped that their concerns would be proven wrong. The United States must now begin an orderly withdrawal of its forces from this mistaken foreign venture. There are no clear answers from the administration or the U.S. Congress on how long the forces will need to stay in Iraq, what the anticipated costs in human life and treasure will be, or even what would constitute success.
