Speaking as a Liberal, no, I don't, especially. I thought Bush's adventure in Iraq was a spectacularly bad idea that he stampeded the country into with cynical manipulation and hysterical fearmongering, and I unfortunately appear to have been right, but if a genie offered to magically end the fighting there, I'd be all for it.

But, I don't think that's going to happen, and I see no way to stop the ongoing slaughter there that doesn't involve genocide, and if we leave, the place will collapse into a hideous full-on civil war.
