    The nation's senior military official warned against a plan, put forward by presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama, to remove all U.S. troops from Iraq by early 2010.

    "I think the consequences could be very dangerous," Adm. Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on "Fox News Sunday." "I'm convinced at this point in time that ... making reductions based on conditions on the ground are very important."

    Will we see Obama "refine" his Iraq policy once again?

    4,000 Americans dead, 30,000 wounded and $700 billion dollars wasted.

    Thank God for Barrack Obama.

    Kirk is a waste of time, but at least he doesn't pretend to know everything like certain other of the faithful, like the supposed intelligent ones with law degrees. I keep asking for that list of actual things Obama stands for and have yet to receive an answer. I guess that nebulous CHANGE and " I am not Bush" is all that matters to these dumb shits.

    I can name a few winners from around the world that got into power with similar vague promises and slogans.

    As I said about this on another thread, Now we get to see if Obama was telling the truth when he said he would follow the advice of the commanders in the field, or if he was just blowing smoke up our asses. I bet it was the latter.

    I hope you are right about Obama refining his policy after this, We can only hope he is not a total nut job like Kirk :lol:

    Obama has been very consistent in his proposals for withdrawing troops.

    He has proposed that we begin withdrawing them, with a target of about 18 months for their complete withdraw, but taking into account changing conditions on the ground which may limit that withdraw, depending.

    He has not, contrary to the reports we keep getting from places like Fox news and the partisans who love them, changed his position since he first posited that plan for our consideration.

    Someone should invent a machine that goes back into history and presents side by side the same things said then as now. I am thinking of Vietnam and the same old, same old, war fear rhetoric. We now trade with Nam, I even have a few shirts made there as much as I hate buying stuff made overseas, at least it wasn't made in China. Man never learns it seems.

    Obama refuses to listen to US Commanders.
    Obama refuses to listen to the Iraqi President.
    Yet, Obama's plan is doing what the Al Qaida would want.

    Why?
