"I want a poll question: Would you be in favor of withdrawal from Iraq if you knew the following things? That instead of hundreds of people a month dying, there will be thousands a week, that Zawahiri and bin Laden... will be dancing, saying 'we defeated them,' and 'we said they were not a strong horse, we said the U.S. was a paper tiger, we said that they would run, and we were right.'
"That the world's second largest... reserve of oil is now in Iraq, and that will be controlled by who? al Qaeda? Iran? Both of them? All of them? If you know all of that is going to happen, and the rest of the world draws the same conclusions that people started to draw after Vietnam; that the U.S. cannot be trusted, when it says it will be there, it's word is not good - would you still be in favor?
"...are you prepared for genocide? Are you prepared for mass slaughter?"
