Introducing Senator Chuck "Kennedy" Hagel
"I think our involvement there has destabilized the Middle East. And the longer we stay there, I think the further destabilization will occur."
That's right - the U.S., rather than radical Muslims, destabilized the Middle East. Perhaps Hagel is right in one respect comparing Iraq to Vietnam - certain political leaders in our country have absolutely no fortitude to do what is right, but rather what is politically expedient.
