    We let the Red Cross enter after we're sure they won't be shot at. Until then, they can sit back, watch, and treat anybody we can get out of the city, but it's too dangerous to let them go in.

    Btw, welcome to the board, and please tell me English isn't your first language.

    This is great, iraqi troops are stepping up. but it still does not make your assumption true.
    Why are we establishing permenent bases in iraq if we are going to leave? "its illogical captain".

    Red cross is in the city.
    But there are effords to kick red cross out of this city.

    What have people of Tel Afer done? Why should the citizens be made guilty for others "Terrorism"?

    We will closely and carefully watch things going on in Tel Afer.


    Some people are uncomfortable with the ethnic structure of Tel Afer and we will carefully watch if there have been people going to this city for fighting terrorism and did change ethnic structure by killing especial ethnicities. This city has about 400.000 citizens. in 2-4 years it will triple.

    After americans go out this city, there will be a stocktaking to inspect who is there and who went to paradise.

    Um, xen, do you think that the Iraqis might need to have permanent bases? Or do you think that they won't be able to work the doorknobs or something because they were built by Americans and obviously Iraqis can't use something that was built while Americans were there?

    I thought they were the Red Crescent?



    But, concerning the article,

    We are winning.

    The Iraqis want to be free, and want to control their own destiny, and they are stepping up to do just that.

    When we leave, and we will leave, the terrorists will no longer have their perceived casus belli, and just as importantly they will not have the strength or support to take Iraq for themselves.

    That is the exit strategy.

    That is victory.

    Oh, it is the same organization (I think). They just call themselves Red Crescent when operating in moslem countries (that whole 'cross' thing, you know).
