    ... in there ...





    "We are now in there responsible for killing people, destroying their families, their children, allowing their older parents to die for lack of basic medicines. We're in there allowing children to die who were not born yet when Saddam Hussein made the mistake of invading Kuwait."

    Source: Would bombing Iran be more humane than killing Iranians with economic sanctions?

    Does in there mean in place or in position?

    As this comment refers to the sanctions that predated the invasion of Iraq, "We are now in there" doesn't mean "in place/position" in a physical sense. It means to be involved in the situation and influencing it by our actions.
