“The military guys are being more cautious because they understand that the security conditions may shift in a way that requires a continued presence,”

I'd say this has been a given for some time, but politics demands the troops be removed, and I'm afraid that it will be at the cost of the Iraqi nation, either in civil war or 'meddling' by other nations. They never should have been there to begin with, and as many of us have predicted, things are likely to get worse.

Get the hell out of Iraq. It's now up to the Iraqis to do their own part and govern and police their own country. < :-)

daydream,

They can't even find the consensus to select a government months after the elections.

The problem just isn't a simplistic as you would like to think.

"Iraq's precarious security"

Perhaps Iraq's fellow Shiite neighbours, the Iranians, can help out here.

Maybe we should remind them that that would be the American way?

Madverts, we could stay there another 10 years and they would still need serious assistance for another 10 years or more. As long as we continue propping them up, the longer they'll need or want us there.

If they can't stand on their own feet then they need to become our 51st state and we take control. Oh..oh..that's what george bush tried to do, sorry. <:-)

At the end of 2011, the last of the U.S. troops will leave an Iraq that is not ruled by a dictator bent on re-acquiring weapons of mass destruction, and doesn't threaten its neighbors, thanks mainly to the decisions of George W. Bush.

The Iraqi War will go down as a great decision only in the minds of Sarge, george bush and dick cheney. This was a massive waste of money and lives. < :-)

Yes indeed... for the American Tax payers. But this war was a huge profitable business for the Weapon industry, The Financial Corp. (e.g. Rockfeller) and Jewish lobbystes & Israel.
