Terrorist Disneyland

One of the strikingly irresponsible things about the Democrats pull out of Iraq plan is that neither they, nor the MSM tell us what is likely to happen after we implement their plan. They have manufactured a consent amongst many American's with an incessant appeal to pathos. They have told us "war is bad" and "this war is really bad" over and over again. They have spent absolutely no time telling America about the mostly likely positive or negative effects of their plan. Below is a Reuters article which gives one likely outcome: a terrorist disneyland in Iraq which compells the US to retake Iraq in 2-3 years.

LONDON (Reuters) - A U.S. troop pullout from Iraq would leave the country as a potent launchpad for international terrorism and Washington would be forced to go back in within a couple of years, a leading al Qaeda expert said on Tuesday.
Rohan Gunaratna told a security conference at Lloyd's of London insurance market that Iraq, like Afghanistan in the 1990s, would become a "terrorist Disneyland" where al Qaeda could build up its strength unchallenged.
If U.S., British and other coalition troops withdrew from Iraq in the next year, he said, "certainly the scale of attacks that would be mounted inside Iraq, and using Iraq as a launching pad to strike other Western countries -- countries in Europe, North America - would become such that after two or three years, the U.S. forces will have to go back to Iraq."
