    This is some funny sh*t. Mere weeks ago, GOPers were outraged at the mere mention of any timeline for withdrawl.

    This plan that BushCo is reportedly negotiating would have combat troops out in 21 months. Obama proposed 16 months. Pretty close.

    Poor John McCain. Legs cut out from under him again.

    The worst foreign policy mistake in American history.

    Must be nice to be a lefty and have history start the day you were born and/or wake up every day!

    Still, when a dreaded war comes, it feels good to win for a change! Thanks Bush!


    :D

    I love the spin. The Liberals have been preaching from day two we couldn't ever win. That we had to cut and run. That we were stuck in a quagmire with no end. That Iraq would never be able to form a functioning Government , military and police force.

    It comes to pass they were all so wrong as to be hilarious. And instead they spin it as if Obama and his cut and run plan were the right plan all along.

    I love about face that the righties have done vis-a-vis timetables for withdrawing from Iraq simply because it came from Bush and was called a "time horizon."

    Watching it unfold has certainly been a comedic experience.

    LOL

    Are you truly this ignorant? The plan has ALWAYS been to cease combat operations and withdraw most forces as son as possible in a frame work of Iraq being able to take over. That has been the plan from DAY one. It has NEVER changed.

    The Administration and the Military have been opposed to FIXED dates before Iraq was able to preform the mission. The libs have been pushing for just leaving whether the Iraqis were ready or not.

    Obama's plan was another " we leave on x date no matter what" The current plan is " we leave on x date because the Iraqis want us to and can actually do the job with out us"

    You guys are so stupid as to be brain dead.

    Yeah, yeah ... fixed dates ... blah blah ... the enemy will wait ... yada yada ...

    Thinking that there is some sort of difference between a 16 month "time table" and a 16 month "time horizon" is laughable.

    Bush has basically told the turrists, "hey guys, cool it for a while longer and we'll be gone in a little over a year," which is the same damn thing as "we'll be gone May 19, 2010."

    But hey that won't stop you guys from high-5-ing each other from with in the circle of hypocrisy.

    Carry on, Sarge.

    Your IGNORANCE is ASTOUNDING. You losers will twist anything to fit your ignorant ramblings.

    There is a HUGE difference between leaving in 16 months no matter what the conditions are in Iraq, as Obama wanted to do and leaving after the Iraqis take over the job of security because we stayed and trained them for it and bought them the time to get that training. But you dumb shits pretend otherwise. Par for the course from retards and rejects like your name implies.

    This was a political move ... and a bad one ...

    Bush saw the writing on the wall and realized that the boys were coming home whether he liked it or not ... and he wanted to preempt Obama ...

    He's pulling out and declaring victory while he still can ...

    But he's got that whole "time table" thing to skirt around ... which according to the right has been akin to aiding and comforting the enemy ... oops ...

    Hence, the "time horizon" ...

    So much for McCain though ... Bush just keeps on derailing his message ...

    And oh, I know that 15/18 of the benchmarks are "Satisfactory" and a whole lot of spinning can be done with such a pleasing looking number like that but I've been through a few exercises and UCI's and well ... "Satisfactory" is pretty much a way of saying "you suck" without flat out saying it ...

    So please, keep living in the fantasy land where pulling the troops out is the right thing to do and Iraq will be fine because it's coming from the Bush Administration as opposed to an Obama Administration where it would be all hellfire and brimstone, and all that ish ...

    Iraq is going to burn no matter who pulls the troops out, Sarge ...

    You are not my friend and I do not even let them call me "sarge" Sarge is a term the army uses for all its E-5 and up and is NOT an acceptable term in the Marine Corps. A Sarge is a Sgt and I retired as a GySgt.

    Now back to the discussion at hand. The plan all along has been to train the Iraqis to take over their own security. And all along your liberals have been chanting "we can't win" "cut and run", Obama was in lock step with that, denying the Surge could work and still claiming it did not. His 16 month time table was a cut and run. A plan that with his words, admits he did not think the Iraqis could take over their own security and that we would just leave them anyway.

    The reality is the Iraqis believe they can handle Security now and we are going to turn over the responsibility to them, with troops in place if it doesn't work. The plan ALL ALONG. We have always said we would pull out combat troops when the Iraqis could handle their own security.

    We do want to maintain bases in Iraq however. And the Iraqis want us to remain with enough force to help them if needed. They want us to change from combat missions to support missions. Which again has ALWAYS been the plan.

    You turds have been claiming all along and I see you continue to claim it, that the Iraqis can not succeed.

    Hate to break it to you Einstein but if they fail and Iraq becomes a failed state we will be right back in there with our troops again. We can not afford to allow that Country to devolve into anarchy.

    But you keep pretending you are right. It is fun laughing at your absolute total ignorance on this issue.
