    Iraq's top leader says their police and army are capable of keeping the peace in Iraq. Time to pull out our combat troops. At best, all that's left to do is to provide arms to the Iraqi Army, and logistical support (i.e. some training)

    To Recap:

    -70% of the american people want to get out of Iraq.

    -A majority of Congress votes for timetables to start getting out of Iraq.

    -The Head of the Iraqi Government says: "Don't stay on our account. We can take over security at any time".

    I have to say that I am a little surprised that this has generated no discussion. Of course, if you believe that our national security is closely tied up to what happens in Iraq, then maybe what he says is pretty irrelevant.

    On the other hand, if the sovereign nation which we occupy is saying that we really don't need to be there, then... I actually don't know what.

    I understand he is probably a little rankled with all the discussion of what a poor job he is doing, but the comment does seem a wee bit ungrateful. (Although perhaps he is not grateful for our presence.)

    OOOHHHHHH!!!!!! What does it all mean?
