Collective Moral Responsibility 
Wednesday, October 25, 2006, 03:32 PM
Here's a question. Let's say 12 to 18 months from now we have one of two options in Iraq:
1) Institute a one time draft and raise active duty strength to the point where we can have twice as many boots on the ground as we do now; or
2) Withdraw from the country with the full knowledge as a direct result of our actions it will be pluged into decades of civil war that will cost tens of thousands of lives.

What it comes down to is do we, as Americans, have a moral responsibility to fix errors our country has made. Or, in even broader language, when you allow someone to make a mistake in your name, do you still have the responsibility to clean it up?
