Should I Draw You A Map?

This is for the people saying that we should get out of Iraq. The ones who think that by leaving Iraq we will have peace and things will be cool. Let me share a little snippet of a letter that has made it's way to the blogosphere as well as some mainstream media:
So we must think for a long time about our next steps and how we want to attain it, and it is my humble opinion that the Jihad in Iraq requires several incremental goals:

The first stage: Expel the Americans from Iraq.

The second stage: Establish an Islamic authority or amirate, then develop it and support it until it achieves the level of a caliphate- over as much territory as you can to spread its power in Iraq, i.e., in Sunni areas, is in order to fill the void stemming from the departure of the Americans, immediately upon their exit and before un-Islamic forces attempt to fill this void, whether those whom the Americans will leave behind them, or those among the un-Islamic forces who will try to jump at taking power.

There is no doubt that this amirate will enter into a fierce struggle with the foreign infidel forces, and those supporting them among the local forces, to put it in a state of constant preoccupation with defending itself, to make it impossible for it to establish a stable state which could proclaim a caliphate, and to keep the Jihadist groups in a constant state of war, until these forces find a chance to annihilate them.

The third stage: Extend the jihad wave to the secular countries neighboring Iraq.

The fourth stage: It may coincide with what came before: the clash with Israel, because Israel was established only to challenge any new Islamic entity.
This is Bin Laden's plan. Think he will stay in his little cave if we leave Iraq? Get your head out of the sand and realize that we have been thrown into this mission and it will be completed because to not do so is to sign not only our death warrants, but the death warrants of Iraqis. The terrorists get off killing innocents now, what do you think they will do if they are given free reign of the country? Do you think they will leave us alone? Wake up and smell the coffee! This is a mission that MUST be completed!
