Kind Says Troops Should Leave Iraq in Event of Civil War

U.S. Rep Ron Kind, whose hometown is La Crosse, recently discussed his thoughts on the war in Iraq at a WisPolitics luncheon at the Madison Club.

Kind says that if the situation in Iraq deteriorates into all-out civil war, U.S. troops would need to be pulled out.

"I don’t think it’s our troops' mission to be there and babysit a civil war," he said at a recent WisPolitics luncheon at the Madison Club.

Kind said the barrage of Iraq images and news stories "constantly in front of people’s faces" reminds them of the failed policies of the GOP-controlled government and the need to vote for change. Though he hasn’t endorsed a specific date for troop withdrawal, Kind, who has visited Iraq three times since the war began, said, "this has to be a crucial transition year."

Kind, a Democrat who has represented western Wisconsin's 3rd Congressional District since 1996, spoke on Iraq and other issues that may influence fall elections during the luncheon. The luncheons are co-sponsored by WHD Government Affairs and Sonic Foundry.
