This time, another Democrat is in headlines for raising questions on the Iraq issue. His name is Brian Baird. U.S. Rep., Brian Baird, said that his current trip to Iraq made him believe that the armed forces need more time in the area.

A hurried pullout can cause disorder and chaos. This will help Iraq, and harm U.S. security.

“I believe that the decision to invade Iraq and the post-invasion management of that country were among the largest foreign-policy mistakes in the history of our nation. I voted against them, and I still think they were the right votes,” Baird remarked. He said all this in a telephone interview when he was in Washington, D.C.

“But we’re on the ground now. We have a responsibility to the Iraqi people and a strategic interest in making this work”, he added.
Baird, a five-term Democrat, voted against President Bush ordering the Iraq invasion — at a time when he was in a minority in Congress, and at risk of alienating voters. He returned late Tuesday from a trip that included stops in Israel, Jordan, and Iraq, where he met troops, U.S. advisers, and Iraqis, whose stories have convinced him that U.S. troops must stay longer.

Brian Baird is ready to take the only answerable position on the matter of pulling forces out from Iraq. It is obviously open to the truth of the signals of development coming from Iraq. If only other Democrats were keen to take this kind of a responsible move towards their jobs as Members of Congress.
