2008 Elections

Rudy Giuliani on Iraq


(Giuliani dropped out of the race on Jan. 30, 2008, after finishing a distant third in Florida's Jan. 29 Republican primary. He then endorsed John McCain.)

Setting an artificial timetable for withdrawal from Iraq now would be a terrible mistake, because it would only embolden our enemies. Iraq is only one front in the larger war on terror, and failure there would lead to a broader and bloodier regional conflict in the near future. Building an accountable Iraq will assist in reducing the threat of terrorism.


Giuliani's Web site: "You face bullies, tyrant and terrorists with strength, not weakness. We need a stronger military, not a weaker military; we need stronger intelligence services, not weaker intelligences services like we had in the 1990s." -Rudy Giuliani
