Something I heard President Bush recently say has stuck in my craw. He said, "that we'll pull out of Iraq when the conditions on the ground improve". Hmmmm. Wasn't what he said not long ago, "that we'll pull out of Iraq as soon as the Iraqi military can take over"? One statement is vastly different from the other, and I have a HUGE problem with the first. The middle east, of which Iraq is no different, has had MAJOR problems with religous zealots and extremists fighting and blowing shit up for THOUSANDS OF YEARS! So President Bush saying we'll pull out when the conditions improve could mean NEVER! Damn it! I want to support the man, and I think what we did in Iraq was good, but I DO NOT support some open-ended, never get the hell out of Iraq ideas.
