This is by NO means an excuse, just fact. An ugly fact. Shit...It will all fall apart. If this shit don't work out right for the US we will be another Italy. Poor, disenfranchised, and yet another fallen imperial power. THAT'S why Bosh can't pull away. There is too much at stake.
And as a politician, I would have a hard time supporting pulling out of this war. Shit is ugly.

"Be intent on action, not on the fruits of action; avoid attraction to the fruits and attachment to inaction! Perform action, firm in discipline, relinquishing attachment; be impartial to failure and sucess - this equanimity is called discipling. Wise men disciplined by understanding relinquish the fruit born of action; freed from these bonds of rebirth, they reach a place beyond decay." --Teachings of Krishna
