    I don't know about running away, but it's high time the democratically elected government of Iraq along with its military got their collective crap together and started shouldering the burden of protecting themselves and the Iraqi people and let our troops come home.

    I'm not talking about abandoning anyone, but we ARE doing THEIR job, and they don't seem very predisposed to altering the status quo.

    Your wrong, did you even read the article? They returned home BECAUSE Iraqi troops, not American, are stationed in their neighborhood. WE are requiring them to take over and to get more combat forces up to standard. The British have all but left leaving the Iraqis to run those areas. Don't get stupid on us now Gunny.

    But have you noticed this is only happening in small portions of the tri nation. and it will never occur in the total nation. I give that section credit for taking the steps. but that is just one section.

    I'm not wrong at all. If Iraqi troops can do the job our troops can all be home for Christmas this year, right?

    "Lets pull out now"


    For once I agree with you RSG.

    Let's declare victory, pull back, and stop babysitting an internal sectarian conflict.

    There is no sectarian conflict. That is a media myth. Isolated incidents and mercenary guerilla attacks by Iranian-funded rabble suddenly turned into a "civil war." Reports from people who are actually interacting with the people there are baffled by the claim. I heard an interview once on NPR, of all places, with an Iraqi during the beginning of the reporting of the "widespread sectarian conflict." The reporter asked him about it and he said that his relatives in the States were calling him extremely concerned and he said he was baffled because the first he had heard of it was from them. I found that quite humorous. The enemy can play the MSM like a fiddle.

    Hopefully you realize that there are Americans that can't even name our Vice President or the country we have invaded. If you realize this, then you can easily discount the stupidity of basing your conspiracy theory off of one interview you heard on NPR.
