    This came of kerrys website.... I read a comment from someone on another site, that said kerry is using this for a so called win for him come Dec, because at the time Iraq will have it's election and some troop's would most likey be comming home anyway. So this is just another low life democrat stunt. :nine:





    America can no longer tolerate the Bush administration's failed "stay as long as it takes" approach to the war in Iraq. It is time for Congress to demand and for George W. Bush to deliver a clear, concrete plan.

    As a first critical step in that direction, I am calling on the Bush administration to respond to the completion of December elections in Iraq by withdrawing 20,000 troops over the holidays.

    The way forward in Iraq is not to pull out precipitously or merely promise to "stay as long as it takes." To undermine the insurgency, we have to simultaneously pursue both a political settlement and the withdrawal of American combat forces linked to specific, responsible benchmarks.

    The draw down of troops should be tied not to an arbitrary timetable, but to a specific timetable for transfer of political and security responsibility to Iraqis and realignment of our troop deployment. That timetable must be real and strict. The goal should be to withdraw the bulk of American combat forces by the end of 2006.

    If George W. Bush refuses to produce a concrete plan for Iraq, then, at the start of 2006, we will demand that Congress acts to take the decision out of his hands. And, if the Republican Congress fails to call the Bush administration to account, we will use the 2006 elections to take the decision out of their hands. We won't stop until we succeed.

    This shows Mr. Kerry doesn't give two shits about the people of Iraq.

    You're so biased that you're going to think whatever the Dems do is a stunt. :blah2: You don't even acknowledge that Kerry is calling for troops to come home.

    Uh - of course she is - read the f'ing article.

    Look - 'bringing the troops home' sounds well and good, but it could prove destructive and fatal for the young democracy they'd be leaving.

    Start caring about others.

    You've heard it a millions times, I'm sure, but here it is one more time. If a date is given when all U.S. troops will leave Iraq, the terrorists will lay low until that date, then flood that country. Then, we'll have another Vietnam slaughter on our hands and yet another country that hates our guts and blames all their problems on us.

    At the moment all their problems are our fault. Hell, it was the US that propped old Saddam up to lead Iraq to begin with! Setting a timetable would give the American taxpayers funding this war an objective. Right now we're wasting billions of dollars occupying a country that has little to offer us besides oil. This war wasn't about "caring about the people of Iraq" until it was proven that there were never any WMD so the Bush administration had to make it appear like a worthwhile cause, so the reason for war changed to "bringing democracy to the middle east." If they got serious about getting the Iraqi military and government ready to govern and protect themselves, we'd be out of there lickity split. Right now it seems like their just f*cking around over there. You've all heard the reports that we've only trained one full battalion of Iraqi troops in two years. It's ridiculous. The Iraq war is a cluster f*ck and the sooner we're out of there the better. We don't need a 10-year occupation. Setting a withdrawal date would do nothing more than but an end in sight. If the Iraqis knew we were leaving, they might get serious about protecting themselves and train an army!

    Kerry's a traitor? I guess actually serving in a war is less patriotic than getting a cush position through your daddy and training on a de-commissioned model plane.:rolleyes: And yeah, you're biased. You interpret a senator calling for the return of troops to their home country as a political stunt. How about Bush holding a staged teleconference with troops in order to reaffirm support for his war strategy while advertising it as an unscripted conversation? I guess you'd just write that off with the multiple other issues his administration has lied to us about.:rolleyes:

    Very little of what any politician does these days isn't a stunt. I don't know why people continue to act shocked about it, it's not like it's anything new.
