    I haven't heard any republicans whine about withdrawl timetables in a while.

    The Bush Admin just agreed to a timeline. I guess that's why.




    Obama's Iraq plans vindicated as US agrees to pull out by 2011


    Iraq and the United States have finally agreed on a security pact which would mean that US forces would withdraw from Iraq by 2011, American and Iraqi officials said yesterday.

    The accord became a major test of strength between the Iraqi government and Washington since negotiations began in March with the Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, pictured below, demanding US concessions on the date of the troop withdrawal and immunity for US troops. The pact replaces the UN Security Council resolution enacted after the American invasion of 2003....

    But Iraq citizens are protesting. They want us out by years end. Atttacks will now grow, as most Iraqis see us as occupation forces, even those who have praised our initial efforts.
    I believe there has been a quieting of attacks so that our government would think all was well and lie in wait until we left. We will never leave Iraq if McCain is elected, and it is doubtful if Obama can get us out of this mire.
