    US 'offering' to keep troops in Iraq? More like begging for permission to stay.

    I don't like that at all. I remember Lebanon (Beirut) as I was in Israel in 1983.

    This is not good. Take them all out.

    They should never have been sent there in the first place.

    "They should never have been sent there in the first place."

    Looking back in history with that thinking does not allow for a forward looking attitude that can deal with the present issues.

    Rather useless. Time spent recriminating the past could be put to better use in deciding the future from the present.

    I pick the present and look to the future.

    Move the troops out now, failing now, as soon as possible.

    I said they should never have been sent there before they were sent there.
    Of course I was ridiculed a lot for that stance as well.

    Noting that Iraq had not asked yet for troops to stay, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: "There's only so much time here available for the Iraqi government to make such a request. If they do, we will consider it."
    it's nothing really but a goodwill gesture

    I'm not ridiculing you. I'm only saying that you might wish to move into the present to deal with these present issues that are coming up which are the 10,000 troops. You know. The ones that might be left. What do you think about that?

    Then you can go back into the past and recriminate. :thup:
