Robert Lorge on War & Peace


No UN troops in Iraq, and US troops under UN

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement: "Replace US troops with UN in Iraq"?

A: OPPOSE. The UN has never done anything right in Peacekeeping since Korea, especially where UN troops or American troops improperly and unconstitutionally in my opinion UNDER UN command are not allowed chapter 7 (use of force) UN rules of engagement. They just become targets and ineffective ins topping aggressors and terrorists, as we have seen around the world many many too many times.

I support peace through strength, not cut-and-run

ul>I SUPPORT PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH. GET IN, GET THE JOB DONE, GET OUT: America must Promote Peace and Democracy and Fight Terrorism Over There instead of letting it come to America.
  • But America is not an Occupying Power nor a Military Expanding Empire, so when the job is done, we come home, but America can never afford to CUT AND RUN, because if we do, America will be kicked around the block by every petty tyrant and terrorist for the next hundred years.
  • I would vote NO on redeploying troops out of Iraq by July 2007.
  • I would vote YES on investigating contract awards in Iraq & Afghanistan.
  • I would vote YES on requiring on-budget funding for Iraq, not emergency funding,
  • I would also require that once a nation recovers its government and is a functioning democracy that it pay its own way, its fair share of American military costs incurred for its benefit, especially where Iraq sits on 1/4th of the World's proven Oil Reserves & can easily afford what American Taxpayers can not.
